DuPont will highlight the new pigment ink series in its digital inks portfolio, DuPont Artistri Brite P5500, at the Fespa Global Print Expo in Berlin, Germany, from 31 May – 3 June 2022.

Artistri P5500 ink is specially designed for DTG (direct to garment) decorators and fulfilment houses who want to move to digital printing but need a faster, more reliable process that provides high quality and repeatability. The new Artistri P5500 set of ink colors delivers improved wash fastness with both press or oven curing and faster curing times. Artistri P5590 white ink offers opacity and stretches customers’ value for longer shelf life.

The high gamut volume aqueous-based ink set is designed to work in printers with low-viscosity piezo-electric printheads. It is suitable for all direct to garment applications, including DTF (direct to film) printing.

With the DuPont Artistri P5500 ink set, printers will be able to tailor their ink usage to the application without compromising color, fastness and repeatability. “We are delighted to deliver a full solution that helps enable leading printing performance in all the areas that contribute to our customers’ success, brilliant and durable colors with less ink plus reduced curing times for oven and press while still delivering printing consistency and dependability to help lower operations and maintenance costs,” said Bernd Daiber, Global Sales leader – Commercial Inks, DuPont Artistri Digital Inks.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
