PERMASET® Water-based Inks

Permaset inks for t-shirt printingPERMASET AQUA® fabric printing ink is the perfect solution to create your textile artwork. A complete range of water-based inks including metallic and fluorescent colours ensures your creativity is unlimited.

Water-based inks do not contain PVC or phthalates, are much more environmentally friendly and equipment can be easily cleaned up with water. PERMASET AQUA fabric printing inks do not contain any toxic chemicals at all. It is formulated free from lead and other heavy metals and passed the Oekotex Class 1 standard with 60% to spare. It is safe to use on baby clothes under 2 years, underwear and swimwear.

PERMASET AQUA textile printing inks do not contain ozone-depleting chemicals such as CFC’s and HCFC’s, aromatic hydrocarbons or any volatile solvents. And you don’t need solvents to clean the screens down after they’ve been used – you can clean them with water.

Most screen printing companies were using Plastisol inks as water-based inks can be difficult to use due to air drying and usually, they are not as durable and opaque as Plastisol inks.

PERMASET AQUA textile printing inks were developed with this in mind. They are highly durable to wash, rub and dry-clean, together with intense pigment colour for excellent coverage, opacity and colour brightness. The ink colours have light-fastness ratings of at least 6/8 on the Blue Wool scale – in fact most of the colours received ratings of 8/8.

The PERMASET AQUA range delivers benefits including being environmentally friendly, soft to the touch, exceptionally durable and in the case of Super Covers, excellent opacity in a range of colours.

WHICH PERMASET® WHITE DO YOU NEED?

PERMASET STANDARD WHITE is formulated with significantly higher levels of titanium dioxide pigment and delivers much better opacity. However, there is a slight trade- off with softness of handle.

PERMASET SUPERCOVER WHITE is our premium opaque white. It has the highest levels of titanium dioxide pigment and binder for use on dark coloured fabrics. Excellent opacity in a water based ink!

PERMASET FIRST DOWN WHITE is used as an under-base or flash white by Trade printers who wish to print on dark fabrics but use regular PERMASET AQUA colours to retain their superior softness and vibrancy. Normally used only with multi-station print facilities.
