Most screen printing companies were using Plastisol inks as water-based inks can be difficult to use due to air drying and usually they are not as durable and opaque as Plastisol inks. Permaset Aqua textile printing inks were developed with this in mind. They are highly durable to wash rub and dry-clean together with intense pigment colour for excellent coverage opacity and colour brightness. The ink colours have light-fastness ratings of at least 6/8 on the Blue Wool scale – in fact most of the colours received ratings of 8/8. The Permaset Aqua range delivers benefits including being environmentally friendly soft to the touch exceptionally durable and in the case of Super Covers excellent opacity in a range of colours.
