Sappi has introduced Transjet Tacky Industrial, a coated dye-sublimation paper, developed for inkjet printing on highly elastic textiles. Also new is uncoated dye sub paper Basejet, developed for digital printing of fashion and home textiles.
Transjet Tacky Industrial enables highly elastic fabrics to be printed on machines that work with a higher glycol content, such as printheads from Kyocera. Thanks to a heat-reactive coating, the paper adheres to highly stretchable content, while the reversible tack prevents ghosting and textile shrinkage. It has a high ink load capacity so the print can be better accentuated due to strong colour saturation and the design remains clearly visible when the fabric is stretched to its maximum.
The paper consists of 100% recyclable cellulose, and all versions are FSC certified. Transjet Tacky Industrial is available in 100g/m² in plotter and jumbo rolls up to a width of 3.2m. The product will soon also be available in 70gsm.
Basejet is also made from 100% recyclable cellulose and is FSC certified. It comes in 20, 30, 40 and 50gsm, and is available in all standard roll widths up to 3.2m in a range of diameters.
