Neenah Coldenhove Texcol® Revolutionary Technologies

“Have you recently heard about Neenah Coldenhove’s latest product, Texcol®?
Texcol® is their newly developed digital transfer paper, it allows users to print on a wide range of natural fibre textiles, using a waterless process with your standard technology! This eliminates complex pre- or post-treatments of textiles and reduces the user’s cost and carbon footprint.

“After we launched it in July during ITMA 2019, Texcol® has been hailed as one of this year’s revolutionary technologies.”

From that point on, Texcol® has secured its place in the spotlights and the interest surrounding our new product has not faded away. We kept receiving enthusiastic feedback and in order to keep the momentum going, we took some actions.
A brand-new printing laboratory has been built here at Neenah Coldenhove and throughout the week of 11 November we organized a seminar with selected parties: the Texcol® Demo Days.

Out of more than 600 interested leads, we choose a few experts from various countries with differing backgrounds, end-use markets and expertise.
Driven by the curiosity of a product that could be the key to unlocking new business opportunities, participants of the Texcol® Demo Days have been able to see the actual printing and transferring process, in addition to market analysis and insights on the development of the paper.

We have marked positive takeaways from those days, which were filled with solid discussions, fascinating workshops and informal chats! Despite the differences in knowledge and skill sets, we at Neenah Coldenhove and the attendees enjoyed highly productive sessions that have motivated us all to continue improving and working together to achieve great results.

True, we will most likely experience some challenges in the near future, but challenges open the door to new opportunities. Additionally, all the insights collected during the Texcol® Demo Days can create the basis for new initiatives!
Our first action will be to declare our participation at Heimtextil 2020: the international trade fair for home and contract textiles.

Stay tuned to find out what else we have in store for you at this upcoming event. Who knows, you might even be the next person invited to the Texcol® Demo Days 2.0!”

Neenah Coldenhove Launch New Digital Transfer Paper for Natural Fibres

Neenah Coldenhove was pleased to announce the unveiling of their highly anticipated Texcol® digital pigment transfer paper at this year’s edition of ITMA in Barcelona, Spain, held last month. The newly developed Neenah Coldenhove digital transfer paper allows users to print on a wide range of natural fibre textiles, like cotton, using a waterless process. Texcol® digital transfer paper eliminates complex pre- or post-treatments of textiles, and reduces the user’s cost and carbon footprint.

A revolution for the home textiles industry 
Texcol® guarantees a wider colour gamut with deeper, more brilliant colours in comparison to digital direct pigment printing. The light fastness of the product is outstanding, and the paper’s special coating makes it highly resistant to crocking. It’s this coating that also allows users to generate ink savings of up to 25% on their current jobs!

Easy transition
Excellent for use on textiles, Texcol® is designed to run on most plotter printers and allows for easy transfer when using the currently available technologies. Users can transition to this new way of printing without having to make large investments. And for those who want to try out the product before they invest in it, they can become a Neenah Coldenhove test customer. Contact us at +31 6 21809223 or marketing@neenah.com for more information.

Think Green. Think Different

Innovation

Think Green and Think Different.


Decal sets a new standard in environmentally friendly medias – products 100% PVC Free, including our SAV range, meaning they are completely solvent free and even food safe.

Environmental standards are extremely important to us here at DECAL. That is why we have developed our own innovative way of manufacturing wide format medias and self adhesive vinyls that don’t include ANY solvents whatsoever.

Innovation is what drives us to improve and invent new medias, for every ink type, to enhance our visual world. An example of this is our new over lamination process for UV LED printing which eliminates the “silvery” effect often seen on other medias. We also have a full range of  Latex medias for the emerging Decor and Interiors market.

Quality

When only the best will do.


Our media factory is the most modern in Europe. The 12,000 sq ft facility houses state-of-the-art equipment and uses the finest of European raw materials to manufacture high quality wide format media, self-adhesive vinyls, self-adhesive labels, overlaminates and wallcoverings.

To ensure we maintain the highest quality standards, each roll of media has a QR code printed the backliner, so should an issue occur in the field, this enables us to quickly trace batches, investigate chemistry and solve the issue, simply by scanning the QR code and raising a customer service ticket immediately.

This system of traceability is totally unique in the industry and reinforces our commitment to innovation and maintaining high quality standards.
