– Leathers with digital printings (Agfa/Alussa with Nuti Ivo Group) –

Agfa-Gevaert N.V., is a Belgian-German multinational corporation that develops, manufactures, and distributes analogue and digital imaging products and systems.

“Together, we achieve more…” With this saying in mind, Agfa started a first partnership with Nuti Ivo group in 2017 to make the most of the synergy between digital printing inks and leather coatings. Our joint expertise resulted in a best-in-class product. Nuti’s leathers, decorated with Alussa, easily outperform other decorated leathers. They meet the highest standards of the luxury market concerning dry and wet flex behavior and scratch resistance, without losing their leather touch.

Learn why the most important fashion brands in the world will be able to benefit from the synergy between leather and ink:

Personalized productivity
A robust and reliable UV inkjet printer, Alussa is characterized by immediate start-up and a Print & Prepare option that anticipates the next job while printing. Production runs smoothly and without delays. Add to that Alussa’s capacity to personalize any item, and you have yourself a true winner in state-of-the-art leather printing.

Photorealistic and lively prints
Expect only superb quality and photorealistic images – both in color and grayscale. With its wide color gamut, strong rub resistance and solid flex performance, Alussa is up to any challenge, consistently delivering the same excellence. Resulting prints are immediately dry and ready for further processing.

The leather production process
Printing with Alussa consists of several steps. First, a conventional coating engine applies a special designed base coat to create a solid bond between leather and ink. After drying, Agfa’s inkjet equipment applies the decoration using Alussa inks. Finally, the top coat and fusing step finalize the decoration process and give the product its definitive touch and feel.
