PERMASET Screen Printing Auxiliaries

1. Table Adhesive – A non-toxic white glue that eliminates movement of the fabric when printing 

Print Additives are used to alter the characteristics of the ink: 

2. Print Retarder – Add to slow the drying of water-based inks on the screen. 
3. Fabric Softener – Add to ink when an even softer hand is desired in the finished print.  
4. Synthetic Fixer – Improves adhesion to fabrics based on poly-cotton, 100% polyester or acrylic fibre. 
5. Anti-bleed Additive – Reduces bleeding of prints, leading to improved print definition.  
6. Thickener – Used to increase the viscosity of ink. 
7. Standard Binder – Used to address bleed or washout issues, typically after excessive addition of Concentrates. 

We tried this eco-friendly PERMASET platen adhesive and so far, it’s been amazing. Now we can say goodbye to aerosol glue!

Frequently Asked Questions

PERMASET Print Retarder is normally added at 1–3% of the total volume of product (i.e. 10–30 mL per 1 L of PERMASET Ink). Due to varying temperature, humidity and other conditions, it is difficult to predict the actual amount of PERMASET Print Retarder required. Generally, the higher the temperature, the lower the humidity and the higher the airflow of air in the printing environment, then the higher the amount of PERMASET Print Retarder required.

If you leave the image area flooded between prints, that should be a BIG help. If you are still having problems, add 1-3% of PERMASET Print Retarder. What will be an even bigger help is ensuring that the humidity in the print room never falls below 40% R.H. and ideally is kept over 50% R.H.
