ElvaJet® Punch is the sublimation ink to take your printing to the next level. Based on high performance materials, it delivers superior color strength and application performance while maintaining the print quality and consistency in production that is hallmark of all Sensient inks.
ElvaJet Punch provides unrivalled color strength and extended color gamut in high value applications such as sportswear, flag & banner, fashion and home textiles. Superb printing performance and ease of use across the full range of Epson DX and TFP print heads ensures unsurpassed reliability.
ElvaJet Punch offers supreme color performance while using less ink, so providing cost efficiencies. This enables a switch to lower weight papers without compromising final product quality, allowing savings in cost, storage space and waste.
ElvaJet Punch inks are suitable for printing onto polyester via a transfer paper with many large format water-based Epson piezo printers using DX and TFP series printheads. ElvaJet Punch EP is achieves outstanding results on both lightweight, uncoated papers as well as regular coated ones. This range offers not only outstanding printability, but also the unique possibility to print on any Epson head system via both transfer and direct print.

How to use
The ElvaJet Punch series has been tested on the most frequently used printers, but users should check the inks’ suitability for individual machines and models.
If the inks dry in the nozzles, the normal cleaning procedure built into the printer should be applied. We recommend the use of our specific cleaning solution, Sensient Universal Flush WB.
For optimal printing, the relative humidity rate must be kept at 55% or higher and the ambient temperature should be around 20°C (70°F).
ElvaJet Punch inks are designed for direct printing or for transfer to the substrate via any type of sublimation transfer paper or film. If using the transfer method, once printed, the transfer paper should be handled with care and the ink transferred to the fabric as soon as possible after printing.
To obtain a good color transfer and fixing, the printed substrate should be transferred at 210°C (410°F) for 30s.
