For screen printing purposes, the PERMASET AQUA and PERMATONE Inks are very similar and perform in a comparable way on the screen.  These two inks do however differ in the following ways: 

  1. The PERMATONE Ink range was designed as a complete system for colour matching and comes with a matching tool for 1869 colours. PERMATONE inks are generally significantly stronger than the comparable PERMASET AQUA colour, and may incorporate slightly different pigmentation in order to work within the mixing system, They would rarely be used without mixing.   
  1. PERMATONE Inks have also been certified organic by the Soil Association of the UK, whereas only the PERMASET AQUA Process Colours have been through this organic approval process.
