International Coatings has introduced the new HDB Digital System, created specifically to optimise hybrid digital print applications. The HDB System allows digital garment ink to be printed faster, and with sharper resolution, better colour and wash fastness.
Hybrid prints combine a screen print underbase with an inkjet-type print. The results are clear, crisp digitally-printed images on garments. Hybrid DTG printers offer today’s garment decorators the ability to fulfil small to medium multi-colour print jobs quickly and more economically. Hybrid prints can be printed up to four times faster than traditional DTG printing and the HDB inks typically cost a quarter of digital white underbase inks.
International Coatings’ HDB Digital System is an easy-to-use three-component/ step system comprised of an HDB primer coat for either cotton or hard-to-print synthetics, followed by the HDB Synthesis Receiver Base (part A and B), and an HDB Optimum Clear. With the HDB Digital System, digital ink is printed wet-on-wet on the HDB underbase, eliminating the need to flash.
The HDB Digital System enables digital printing on light and dark garments and provides a vibrant, smooth, and durable finish. The HDB low-bleed system is designed to block bleed for digital printing on polyester, synthetic and performance fabrics.
