Have you tried IMAGE ARMOR WHITE? Works well and better price.

For CMYK
This is a good deal for Epson converted printers...

There are a couple of different ways to convert a R2000.

I think that some times what works for one person may not work for another, but its figuring out what works best for you.

I think that Dupont does have the best white ink, and that is because they have continuously changed it over the years to get a better ink. When I first started with their original white ink, it separated very quickly, and every time they make a new formula for improvement, it gets better as it did for me. I will say I never used the bagged system because I did not have any issues with the bulk system, and my theory was why fix it if it was not broken. Remember that anyone coming out with new white inks, are going to go through the growing pains dupont did to get it to the level dupont has gotten their ink.

As Carla stated, even though the ink they are using is DUPONT, it is packaged differently, but still the same ink. So is there a better white ink than Dupont? Probably not, as the other manufacturing companies of ink, have yet to go through all the growing pains they did, reformulating to get a better ink over and over. They start with one formula, figure out a way to make it better and so on and so on until they get to where Dupont is.

I know there are several different ink sets for CMYK that may work well, but with the white I had never found a better ink then Dupont. The packaging of it just depends on you, and what works best for you. For me my bulk system was perfectly fine and I never felt the need to change it, as I had absolutely no issues with it. So it really comes down to what works best for each individual but as far as brand, I think dupont is the best white you will find.

Re: better cheaper dtg ink than dupont

I shake my sealed carts to ensure the heavier white is well mixed. I also give the ink lines a flick - it works for me and is no hardship.

Re: better cheaper dtg ink than dupont

Humm... How about the white ink cartridge's do they need to be mixed/shake ever few days like the instructions on the bottles from dupont? Or does the sealed cartridge take care of that? If it does do you need to be concerned with the lines if the printer sits over the weekend...

Thanks...

Re: better cheaper dtg ink than dupont

The NeoFlex can use bulk ink carts, I've used them, but do remember, the carts supplied by AA for the NeoFlex have sealed bags inside - the best of both worlds

Re: better cheaper dtg ink than dupont

bulk carts need the hole open so as the ink leaves the cart, air can take it's place. this way no negative pressure builds.

the carts with bags inside of them (NeoFlex) are vacuum sealed, so no air needs to be introduced into the bag.

i've used both with equal results, while others will swear by the sealed carts (bag inside). if you are printing everyday, then the bulk carts should be fine. i will say that the WHITE ink is much more sensitive to the elements and i would recommend using sealed carts for that. again, i've done both with equal results, but i also keep the ink moving, have good humidity, keep my printer clean, etc.

Re: better cheaper dtg ink than dupont

Does any one know of any advantages or disadvantages from the ink bags vs the cartridge type inks for the 4880... I have also seen that DTG has a newer 4480 bulk cartridge and they say to leave an air hole open on top of the cartridge so the ink does not strave... But I see the neoflex does not.. Since they are both based on the 4880 printer is this extra air hold really needed?

Re: better cheaper dtg ink than dupont

I believe you bought your machines from either the Turkish dealer or the Polish dealer.

Yes, correct.
