Make your own fluorescent coloured screen printing inks with a choice of effect binders.
A little goes a long way! These 50g pots of bright fluorescent coloured ECO pigments are economical for experimenting and sampling and perfect for mixing your own screen printing inks. The high concentration of pigment guarantees brilliant colours.
The pigment particles have been dispersed in an aqueous solution so that the pigment combines with the binder more efficiently and smoothly and does not clump. Use up to 6% of these concentrated pigments in combination with Selectasine binders to make prints permanent on fabric and paper. Choose from our standard SF20 solvent free binder, expanding puff binder, pearl binder or opaque binder! The metallic binder can be combined with fine metallic powders to create “liquid metal” colours – excellent for adding luxurious finishes to prints. To increase viscosity you can add a small amount of Selectasine Concentrated Print Paste Thickener.
Not only can the pigments be used for making screen printing inks, they can also be used (in combination with Selectasine Binder) to make a range of paints, or to colour pulp in papermaking.
Heat set at 165°C for 5-6 minutes to make the prints wash fast; this can be achieved by ironing on the reverse of fabric. Setting time can be reduced to as little as one minute by combining 20g per kg of Selectasine Crosslinker Ink Cure to ink solution.
To prolong the life of this product, store in an airtight container in cool place above 5°C and below 25°C. Wash off screens using water and mild detergent.
These 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). The pigments 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.
