PERMASET Foil FX Inks exceptional sparkle is achieved through the use of very large flakes. The interference effect is similar to that exhibited in cosmetics and some high-end automotive finishes. However, care must be taken with these inks as the technology used makes them perform significantly differently to other inks.
PERMASET Puff Paste may be mixed with coloured inks or concentrates to produce a coloured puff effect. The print puffs upon curing to produce a 3D effect, providing a raised, textured quality to the finished print, that can be used to emphasise parts of a design.
PERMASET Phosphescent Green Ink is supplied as a pale green paste. Whilst it can be printed over both black and white fabrics, the phosphorescent effect is more pronounced when printed over a white background.

Due to the large flake size, a 43T (110 tpi) mesh should not be used. A 20 or 22T (51-56 tpi) will be required. Rub, wash and dry clean resistance is relatively poor and considerable flaking should be expected. This product is not suited for use on furnishings or machine washing.
PERMASET Puff Paste may be printed on a full range of fabrics including cotton, polyester, silk and most synthetics. Screen mesh sizes of 32-43T (81-110 tpi) will be required for most applications.
PERMASET Phosphorescent Green may be printed on a full range of fabrics including cotton, polyester, silk and most synthetics. Best results can be achieved by printing this ink over a white background such as PERMASET First Down White.
All PERMASET Specialty Inks may be printed on both light and dark fabrics.
PERMASET Foil FX is best suited to designs where the print is broken up into small areas, like sequins. In large uninterrupted slabs, stretch is compromised and the large mesh pattern will be clearly seen. Notwithstanding these limitations, PERMASET® Foil FX Inks open up some exciting design opportunities not previously available in a textile ink. So, start thinking Shirley Bassey and happy printing!
PERMASET Puff Paste and PERMASET Phosphorescent Green Inks may be used for printing T-shirts, yardage, homewares, flags, sports and fashion wear, scarves, window furnishings, cushions and tote bags.
