D-Base is a clear, waterbase discharge ink. Suitable fabrics are easily discharged producing an extremely soft-hand. D-Base can be used as a color-stripping (bleaching) underbase or can be used with pigments. D-Base can be used in conjunction with other ink systems to produce multiple effects. D-Base’s rheology and flow characteristics allow it to be printed with high mesh counts. This produces very fine image detail and a softer finish.
U-Base is a white underbase discharge ink specifically designed for use in conjunction with plastisol and water-based inks. U-Base is used as a color-stripping (bleaching) underbase. The natural fabric color is replaced with a white underbase. Suitable fabrics are easily discharged producing an extremely soft-hand. U-Base’s rheology and flow characteristics allow it to be printed with high mesh counts, which produces very fine image detail and a softer finish.
D-Powder is a discharge activator. Stir in 3-6%, by weight, and mix well. Different percentages of the Activator will affect the discharge results; increase or decrease in order to achieve desired results. Mix only enough for current production requirements. Activated ink should be us ed within 8 hours.
P-Charge is an ink additive that will make Plastisol inks perform like waterbased discharge inks. The results are a softer hand and the feel of a waterbased print without having to have a separate mixing system.
W-Base is a clear base for waterbase printing. W-Base is designed to be used with pigment systems or as an extender for standard waterbase colors. W-Base has great color reflection for strong vivid colors when mixed with CCI’s CMS Color Mixing System.Learn More
Curable Thinner is used to thin plastisol inks. It can be mixed into the product at any level necessary to achieve the desired printability. Keep in mind that the more of any thinner you add to ink, you are reducing the opacity and other properties of the product such as low bleed. The mixture can print through a wide variety of mesh ranges and will cure at 320 degrees F (160 degrees C).Learn More
