PERMASET AQUA Standard Inks feature a unique, creamy consistency resulting in the ink being easy to handle and performing well on the screen.
Care must be taken with water-based inks to ensure that the image area remains flooded at all times between prints. To prevent the ink from drying in the screen, it is useful to maintain humidity in the print room at over 40% RH. Low humidity environments are likely to exacerbate the propensity of water-based inks to dry in the screen.
PERMASET Ink is safe for screen printers to use as the formulation does not contain ozone-depleting chemicals including CFCs and HCFCs, aromatic hydrocarbons, volatile solvents, phthalates, lead or other heavy metals. PERMASET AQUA Inks exhibit a matt finish, are intermixable and light fast with non-bleeding colours. The colours are intense and prints exhibit a soft handle, excellent wash and dry clean resistance once cured and are ironable.
PERMASET inks are ideal for use on a full range of fabrics including cotton, linen, silk, hemp, polyester, polyester blends and most other synthetics.
PERMASET Ink shows excellent resistance to damage by rub, wash and dry-cleaning, all without the need for additives. The ink colours have light-fastness ratings of at least 6/8 on the Blue Wool Scale – in fact most of the colours rate 8/8.
PERMASET AQUA can be used to print directly on light coloured fabrics and textiles.
