“To get the very best out of your textile printer, you need a tailored combination of products” – Thomas, BU Manager Printing

The textile industry revolves around colours and patterns. We add them to all kind of textiles, carpets and technical articles. Textile printing is a fast way to do so and is used in many textile mills. Without it, the textile world would be plain boring, as without designs and templates.

There’s no such thing as a magical printer that knows how to print all fabric types, hence the countless textile printing methods. To make things even more complicated, conventional screen printing and digital printing methods differ in many ways. Confused? Scroll down to our fold out scheme!

No matter which technology you choose, you cannot just turn on your machines and press “print”. “To get the very best out of your textile printer, you need a tailored combination of products that prepare, protect, and improve your print results and make the colours last longer”, explains BU Manager Thomas.

 

This is where we come in

We turn every material upside down and study its printability, pick-up rate and reactions to different chemicals. As a result, we know how to finetune your printing process as well as which chemicals to add in which stage.

 

Our product range

Depending on customer requirements, Tanatex can help to achieve the right printing results. This way, you create bright, dull, sharp, deep, contrast or tone on tone colours that don’t bleed or fade and that don’t turn the fabric rigid. Below, you find our range of printing products that accomplish just that.
