DuPont Advanced Printing (DuPont) today announced the launch of DuPont™ Artistri® Xite S1500 dye sublimation ink. Backed by more than 25 years of digital inkjet manufacturing and technical support, the innovative ink is now available for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and printers. Artistri® Xite S1500 offers superior product consistency, jetting reliability and color print performance.
“We are excited to add Artistri® Xite S1500 to our family of inks. This is an ink that delivers what our customers expect from DuPont – exceptional color saturation, printing efficiency and innovation. This is the next step as we continue to build our portfolio and meet the growing needs of the digital textile market,” said Eric Beyeler, global marketing manager – Digital Inks, DuPont Advanced Printing.
Artistri® Xite S1500 ink is a new digital ink offering for printing on polyester textile substrates.

The quality control and manufacturing expertise from DuPont ensures that the ink the user purchases will be consistent and predictable batch-to-batch,” said Ken Hogrefe, technical marketing manager – DuPont Advanced Printing.
