Plastisol inks are widely used in garment printing because they are easy to print, do not dry in the screen, can be opaque on dark garments and adhere to most textiles. They are composed primarily of PVC resin ( a white powder) and plasticiser (a thick, clear liquid). Plastisol inks can be dried using a heat gun but must be fully heat cured to 153DegreesC for full washability using a reliable form of heat curing.

This ink must be removed using screenwash (see our cleaning product range) on a dry cloth, we recommend either our high strength screenwash for toughest removal, or our organic screenwash for a more eco-friendly clean, or for an odourless cleaning solution our Emulsifiable screenwash is an eco friendly alternative.

Plastisol inks can be printed on virtually any surface that can withstand the heat required to cure the ink and is porous enough to permit good ink penetration. Plastisol inks do not dye the fibres, instead the ink wraps around the fibres and makes a mechanical bond with the fabric.
