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.

Discharge Waterbased Inks

February 22nd, 2016

Waterbased Discharge Ink

Discharge waterbased inks are popular because they are soft and breathable. Using the discharge print method you print your designs on apparel with inks that bleach out the existing dye and replace it with your chosen colors.

  • Water based discharge printing results in crisp detailed reproductions of your art without the heavy hand of traditional plastisol printing.
  • Discharge inks work best on 100% cotton fabric, although a surprising number of 50/50 fabric blends are now showing bright print results as well. There are some fabric dyes that resist the discharge process (kelly green, royal blue, purple) and other cotton garments that print up stunningly well.
  • Simply add the appropriate amount of activator to the ink (usually 6%), print the design and then apply heat.  Results will be seen once heat has been applied and the ink activated.

More colours to this range are being added daily so keep checking back for our ever expanding colour range:
