Plasma pre-treatment systems for Digital Textile Printing
Chiara Pavan, R&D Project Manager, GRINP S.r.l.
Pretreatments (washing and preparation) are required both for digital and traditional printing on textiles to provide adequate performances. However, these processes use vast amounts of water, chemicals and energy, resources that the textile sector aims to save in the first place. Platex machine, based on Grinp Srl plasma technology, can replace wet pretreatments for cellulose and polyester fabrics with a 100% dry process, using 99% less chemicals, with zero toxic discharge, and 90% less energy.
