Concentrated coloured pigments for combining with Selectasine binder to make printing inks for screen printing, spraying, block printing or painting. To help bind pigment to fibres in papermaking use Cationic Retention Aid.
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.
50g, 500g, and 1kg sizes are also available from this website.

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.
Aug 2014: Prices charged for Selectasine products have remained constant over the last three years. During this time, due to changes in legislation, particularly REACH and also customer preference for the removal of organic solvents, the product mix has changed significantly in many of the pigments without altering their performance characteristics. The current price review reflects these changes and has led to substantial reductions in some products and increases in others. We hope to hold these prices for some time to come.
