Concentrated coloured pigments for combining with Selectasine binder to make printing inks for screen printing, spraying, block printing or painting.
The pigments are also effective for colouring handmade papers and should be used in conjunction with the Cationic Retention Aid which helps to bind the pigment to the fibres during the paper making process.
The pigments are supplied in a liquid state as "pigment in dispersion" (i.e. the pigment is still a solid, though minute, and has not been dissolved into the liquid). Discharge bleaching agent and the perchlorethylene, used in dry cleaning, can discolour some pigments. e.g. a red, after treatment might look "brownish", (the colour chart shows: * colours are fast to dry cleaning in perchlorethylene, † colours are dischargeable using a discharge agent)
35-50g of pigment to 1kg of binder will give full shade (use 50g for Black). Careful measuring and note keeping will ensure screen ink colours can be repeated.
1kg sizes are available to special order, please call 01483 565800 or email email@example.com with your enquiry

NOTE: When Selectasine Black TT Pigment is combined with Selectasine Solvent Free Binder SF20, the solution is prone to gelling if the concentration of the pigment is more than 2% (2g per 100g binder). In order to get a good strong black, a 5% concentration is generally required. To prevent gelling, add a salt solution (10g salt to 100ml water) a little at a time, depending on the concentration of black required.
