The Technology Behind Peracto

Current technology

Current textile printing suffers from several drawbacks:

At present each textile material requires its own specific ink chemistry, i.e. a different ink or dyes are needed for Polyester, Cotton, Polyamide, etc. Blends of different textile fibres must be treated twice. 

  • For digital printing, different processes, printers and print heads are needed.
  • For dyeing, different process equipment is needed.

Currently pre-treatment of the textile is normally required before printing. This is needed to make the textiles more susceptible to the inks and to ensure that the inks have good fastness.  Some dyeing processes require pre-treatment.

  • This results in large amounts of water and energy usage during pre- and post-treatment and in process complexity.

PERACTO Technology - patented

PERACTO inks and dyes have the following benefits compared to the currently used inks and dyes used in digital printing or in traditional dyeing and printing:

  • 50% reduction of process cost for traditional pad dyeing.
  • Simplified process: no need for pre-treatment or fabric differentiated post-treatments, no need for washing resulting in a 90% water and energy saving.
  • Compatibility with current printing and dyeing equipment, no need to invest in new equipment.
  • Higher efficiency: one ink type for all fibres; for both synthetic and natural fibres. Change of ink or dye chemistry is no longer required.
  • Good colour fastness.
  • Compliance with REACH regulations and suitable for Oeko-tex.
