To commemorate 35 years of delivering innovation and being a global leader in digital inkjet inks with its Artistri ink products, DuPont announced the launch of its PN 1000 ink series at Drupa 2024. The new product series is a set of low-viscosity water-based pigment inkjet inks for commercial printing, formulated with proprietary DuPont technology and compatible with industry-standard drying technologies.

This new ink set is suitable for book, direct mail, and transactional printing applications and prints a rich black alongside delivering a large color gamut with minimal to no drying, allowing printers to achieve higher speeds to be more productive. The key benefits also include:

high optical density on various paper substrates

high image quality

high durability

reliable jetting sustainability.

“We believe that Drupa 2024, the most important printing show in the world, is the perfect place for presenting the newest ink series, said Tucker Norton, Global Business Director, DuPont Printing & Packaging.” With the growth in digital printing, we will continue to innovate, bringing more sustainable solutions that will elevate commercial and textile printing to a higher level.”

On the packaging front, DuPont will showcase its water-based inks for corrugated, folding cartons and flexible packaging printing, responding to the emerging demand from conscious converters looking for safer ink alternatives. Developed for the OEM project needs, these products are ideal for indirect food contact and comply with the Swiss Ordinance and EuPIA (European Printing Ink Association). The Artistry water-based pigment inks for packaging printing are manufactured under Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards and in ISO 9002-2015 certified facilities.

Sustainability is a key element in DuPont’s portfolio innovation. The company aims to not only offer more environmentally friendly products that will allow printers to choose processes with a lower carbon footprint but also develop products that are safe and sustainable by design.

DuPont’s recent 2024 Sustainability Report, published last month, highlights the success case of DuPont scientists completing a three-year effort to replace 2-pyrrolidone solvent in inks with safer, non-regulated alternatives while maintaining equivalent performance and shelf life. “We are proud to see that this work supports the overarching trends of printers moving to digital printing for consumer products and demonstrates DuPont’s commitment to being ahead of the curve about substances of concern across our portfolio”, said Gabriela Kim, Global Brand and Marketing Manager, DuPont Artistri Digital Inks.

DuPont will also exhibit other products from the Artistri portfolio at Drupa 2024, such as P1600, the premium pigment inkjet inks for Direct-to-Film (DTF) textile printing. “Within textile printing, there’s a boom with the DTF technology over the last few years due to its versatility and DTF is here to stay, added Kim.” The P1600 ink series was specially designed for this technology, delivering bright images while giving the consistency and reliability for printers to spend less time with maintenance.”
