PERMASET SUPERCOVER® First Down White is designed to be used as an underbase for Trade Printers wanting to print on dark fabrics, who know that using standard PERMASET AQUA® colours or PERMATONE® Inks offers a print with superior softness and greater colour vibrancy.
PERMASET SUPERCOVER® First Down White is typically used on multi-station print machines where tight registration can be maintained. It’s also great for a safer workplace and a healthier planet.
With discharge printing, once you add the discharge agent, the clock starts ticking, so you’re under pressure to print the entire mix within 2 hours. Any ink unused at the end of that time must be disposed of, so there’s also a significant wastage factor.
Using PERMASET SUPERCOVER First Down White, there’s no rush and no waste. You take all the time that you need to get the job done right. And once you are finished, any unused ink can be reclaimed and stored for usage on the next job.
2. WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET
A complaint of discharge systems is that if a mistake is made in the artwork, then you don’t get to see it until it comes out at the end of the drying tunnel, by which time potentially 20 or more shirts may have been printed and ruined, and that’s if someone is standing there to monitor what comes out.
With PERMASET SUPERCOVER First Down White, you can see exactly what you’re printing from the very first print as it comes off the carousel. You’ll always have that covered.
Discharge can yield some strange results. You don’t know whether this year’s black T-shirt was a surplus white shirt last year, or pink or brown or green or orange or purple, so you don’t know what colour it will come out with the discharge process. Using PERMASET SUPERCOVER First Down White ensures a uniform base colour, every time.
The chemical addition with discharge introduces an opportunity for more variability into your processes as staff members may well have different mixing practices or even add different amounts of discharge agent. Again, using PERMASET SUPERCOVER First Down White ensures a uniform result every single time.
By using PERMASET SUPERCOVER First Down White, you’ll get a more consistent result from one shirt colour to the next and one shirt maker to the next and one staff member to the next.
The reduction in variability through printing one standard ink as a base onto a shirt puts you back in control; you control the inputs and all the processes, so you get reproducible outputs and your customers get a more consistent product.
4. HEALTH & SAFETY
This is arguably the greatest set of benefits. First up, you don’t have to keep and maintain discharge chemicals. Second, no chemical additions to the inks mean no smells and no killer headaches.
That adds up to a safer workplace for you to manage and maintain, for your staff to work in and a healthier environment for your community.
5. SOIL ASSOCIATION APPROVED
PERMASET SUPERCOVER First Down White has Organic Approval from the Soil Association of the UK. PERMASET SUPERCOVER First Down White has successfully met the requirements of the Global Organic Textiles Standards (GOTS) for non-organic chemical inputs for use in organic textile processing.
