Combine this binder with the Selectasine Gold (Bronze) or Silver (Aluminium) powders to create metallic coloured screen printing inks or metallic paint for fabric, paper, wood or board. Use between 100g and 150g metallic powder to 1kg of binder (1:10). The binder can also be used with Jacquard Pearl Ex to create a further range of metallic effect paints or screen inks.
The binder is made washfast on fabric by heat setting. Once dry, apply heat on the reverse of the print at 165°C (330°F) for 4-5 minutes (adding Selectasine Crosslinker to the ink will reduce this time to just 1 minute).
Please note that the silver coloured metallic powder is made from fine particles of aluminium. The silver powder is now sold with a small amount of isopropyl alcohol added to bind it into a paste. Combine this paste with a small amount of Selectasine Metallic Binder and then add more Metallic Binder in small amounts until the the aluminium paste has dispersed.
Due to some of the Selectasine products being sensitive to frost, we advise storage under suitable conditions and at temperatures above 5°C
