Korean textile printing specialist D.gen (A1/C70) has brought a new ink formulation to Fespa that produces 'double-sided' results on textiles using single-sided printing.

The firm’s new SPC ink set includes a special liquid that penetrates into the fabric, allowing the print colours to penetrate more deeply, producing a result where the image on the rear of the textile is almost as vivid as that on the front.

"It gives more weight to the ink, so it penetrates," explained D.gen overseas sales manager Julie Kim.

The manufacturer has produced all of the on-site Fespa Digital exhibition flags and banners using the technique, which works on polyester, cotton and silk.

The company’s booth has an ‘Eco-Land’ theme, and alongside a range of its existing textile printing equipment the firm is also showing a video of its new 3.2m-wide water-based inkjet textile printer, the Teleios Grande, which will be available in September.
