Screen Printing with Selectasine

The Selectasine screen printing products offer an economical alternative to ready-mixed screen printing inks. They are used by schools, colleges, professional screen printers, and textile artists.

Selectasine Eco Pigments for Screen printing inks

The screen printing system comprises a large selection of binders. These can be mixed with the concentrated ECO pigments which include a choice of fluorescent colours. The pigment is added to the binder at a rate of 35g to 100g (depending on the intensity of colour required).

The ECO pigment formulations are manufactured with ecologically responsible care and are therefore APEO (Alkylphenol ethoxylates) and Ethylenglycol free. Many of the colours meet the requirements of OEKO-TEX, and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard). They meet the EU, German and US requirements for limiting PCB and Dioxin/Furan trace contaminations, as well as meeting the ETAD requirements for limiting heavy metal, trace contamination.

The mixed ink can be used for both screen printing and block onto paper and fabric. Add a small amount of Selectasine Paste Thickener gradually until the ink is of the correct consistency for use on paper. Increase the amount of thickener to use the ink with stamps or cut lino.

The print is made permanent on fabric by allowing it to dry before applying heat on the reverse with an iron or heat-press at 165°C (330°F) for 4-5 minutes.

We sell the pigments in 50g, 100g and 500g bottles and the Selectasine Solvent-free Binder SF20 in 1 litre, 5 litre, 20kg and 30kg quantities.

Silk Screen Printing

The Range

The Selectasine screen printing system is not just limited to producing standard screen printing ink. The binders can be intermixed to create differing effects.

There is an opaque white and an opaque binder which will cover most dark colours. The metallic binder and fine metallic powders will create a gold or silver screen ink, while the pearlised binder is used to make pearlescent colours. The puff binder expands when heat is applied, and the suede binder produces a raised, matt finish.

The choice of water based binders and pigments provide great scope for experimentation. To ensure your projects get underway without any problems we recommend measuring quantities prior to mixing. Note keeping and swatch testing will be invaluable once you have achieved a successful print.
