After listening to customers, Sensient developed ElvaJet Swift, the first digital sublimation ink to address all their day-to-day requirements. Swift delivers excellence in color, drying time, transfer efficiency, printing performance and ease of use. It optimizes productivity when printing fashion, interior textiles, sportswear and flag & banner.
ElvaJet Swift offers significant color and cost efficiency efficiencies, allowing you to use less ink to achieve outstanding results. The lower ink requirement and unrivalled transfer performance allows the use of lightweight paper, enabling further cost savings.
ElvaJet Swift inks are suitable for printing onto polyester via transfer paper with many large format water-based Epson piezo printers using DX series heads. Swift inks save ink coverage, which significantly reduces the stress on the transfer paper, so reducing cockling and requiring less drying power. Easy and quick to install, this range also offer the highest printability performance.

How to use
The ElvaJet Swift 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 should be kept at 55% or higher and the ambient temperature should be around 20°C (70°F).
ElvaJet Swift inks are designed for transfer to the substrate via any type of sublimation transfer paper or film. Once printed, the transfer paper should be handled with care and the ink transferred to the fabric as soon as possible.
To obtain a good color transfer and fixing, the printed substrate should be transferred at 210°C (410°F) for 30s.
