The Permaset Foil FX range is ideal for printing designs like sequins and most effective on dark backgrounds. However, interesting visual effects can also be achieved on white or light coloured backgrounds. The exceptional sparkle and reflectance is achieved through the use of a very large particle size flake. The interference effect is similar to that achieved in some high-end automotive finishes and cosmetics.
Care must be taken with the use of these inks as the technology used makes them perform significantly differently to more conventional inks.
Relating to the flake size, rub resistance is relatively poor and considerable flaking should be expected. In line with this, launderability (wash and dry clean resistance) is also expected to be poor. This product is definitely not suited to use on furnishings.
Finally, consideration needs to be given to the type of design that these inks is used for. In large slabs, stretch is compromised and the large mesh can be clearly seen. The product is much better suited to designs where the FOIL FX print is broken into small areas, very much like sequins.
Notwithstanding these limitations, the PERMASET FOIL FX range opens up some exciting design opportunities not previously available in a textile ink. So, start thinking Shirley Bassey and happy printing!
- Foil FX Gold has a very pale gold iridescent sheen effect that is difficult to replicate on a computer screen
- Due to the large flake size of PERMASET Foil FX, a normal 43T (110 tpi) mesh cannot be used. A much more open mesh such as 22T or 24T (50-55 tpi) will be required
- PERMASET Foil FX can be Screen printed, block printed or hand painted onto fabrics and must be heat set after.
