AUSTRALIA’S NUMBER ONE PREMIUM WATER-BASED SCREEN PRINTING INK FOR THE ECO-FRIENDLY PROFESSIONAL
With over 60 years of manufacturing experience, Colormaker Industries is recognised globally by both the fine artist and professional printing trade as the premier manufacturer of textile screen printing inks.
ECO-FRIENDLY SCREEN PRINTING INKS
Building on a record of industry leading products, Colormaker Industries has revolutionised the industry with the development of a range of water-based textile inks and ink for screen-printing that offers superior performance and eliminates the historical trade-off between printability performance on the screen and post-production performance of the finished product.
Historically, most commercial screen printers use plastisol inks, which are easy to use and last well. However, plastisol inks contain PVC and phthalates that are harmful to the environment and have been linked to numerous medical disorders. Plastisol inks also require the use of harmful solvents in the cleaning process.
Water-based inks do not contain PVC or phthalates and you don’t need solvents to clean the screens down after they’ve been used – you can clean them with water.
Permaset Aqua® , Permatone® and Permaprint Premium® screen printing inks do not contain ozone-depleting chemicals such as CFCs and HCFCs, aromatic hydrocarbons or any volatile solvents. They don’t contain lead, heavy metals or any toxic chemicals whatsoever (not even white spirits like other water-based inks on the market). PERMASET AQUA® textile inks passed the Oekotex Class 1 standard (with 60% to spare!) and is safe to use on underwear, swimwear and even baby clothes. The PERMATONE® range of ink for screen printing has also been granted Approval of the Soil Assocation of the UK, having successfully met the requirements of the Global Organic Textiles Standards (GOTS 6.0) for non-organic chemical inputs for use in organic textile processing.
