Eco-Plas is our range of Super-Opaque plastisol screen printing inks for the decoration of textiles. The Eco-Plas range can be printed onto light and dark coloured fabrics. The inks remain open in the screen and can be printed wet on wet. The inks are suitable for hand and automatic carousels.
Phosphorescent is a “glow in the dark” ink that appears off-white in daylight but glows bright green in the dark. Certain Fluorescent colours can be added to make different coloured effects. The length of time the after glow lasts depends on the amount of charge given to the ink and the thickness of print. Recommend mesh counts 32 to 62.
Our fluorescent inks are available in a range of eight colours and will fluoresce under strong sunlight or “black” UV light. In normal lighting conditions they will appear to be very bright. They are suitable for both light and dark coloured fabrics. Recommend mesh counts 43 to 90. Thanks to Cyberdog for the images.
We have two ranges of ready made Metallic inks, 1900 series and 1200 series. The 1200 series has a bright Gold and Silver, both are made using pure aluminium powders which when printed give a bright and shiny result. They can be difficult to cure due to their brightness. Washing will eventually dull the metal finish although not degrade the print. Recommend mesh counts 43 to 62.
We have two ranges of ready made Metallic inks, 1900 series and 1200 series. The 1900 series of metallic colours are made using fine metal particles coated with polyester. The coating makes them very resistant to washing and they will maintain a bright print for much longer. The 1900 series is much easier to cure and has a small range of colours. Both of these metallic inks are suitable for both light and dark coloured fabrics. Recommend mesh counts 43 to 62.
Chalk Board Black is a platisol ink used to print a chalk receptive surface onto cotton or polyester material such as T-shirts. The ink is printed and heat-cured the same as a normal plastisol ink. Once cured the ink can be chalked onto as if it were a “blackboard” and the chalk removed by wiping with a damp cloth. The “blackboard” can then be re-used to promote a different message. Machine washing will eventually degrade the surface after approximately 10 - 20 washes. Recommend mesh count 43
Foils are bright coloured metallic sheets used to decorate fabric when used in conjunction with a foil adhesive. The Foil Adhesive can be either a water based or plastisol screen printable glue that accepts metallic foils when heat pressed together. The design is screen printed onto the fabric and then semi-cured i.e. touch dried. The fabric is then placed in a transfer press and the foil positioned over the printed area and heat pressed together. After cooling the foil backing is peeled off leaving the printed design covered in foil.
4 Colour Process inks are for printing photographic type images, that have been separated in to 4 colours: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black (otherwise known as CMYK). Our process set will give a great result on white shirts. If you want to print process colours on a black shirt they will need a white under base.
