Screen Printing Inks

Click below for either Plastisol or Waterbased Screen Printing Inks. Plastisol inks are a thicker, more industrial ink that requires 300degF Heat to cure (Some inks are "low cure" and require less heat to cure). These inks are generally cured with a conveyor dryer, but also cure using just a simple flash cure unit as well. 

Waterbased inks are thinner, more environmentally friendly, and require less chemicals to clean up. Waterbased inks cure when the water has fully evaporated from the garment. This means that a longer curetime is necessary, unlike plastisol which must reach a certain temperature to cure. Waterbased ink shirts can be air-dryed and heat set (cured) in a variety of methods. A household iron on the inside of the shirt can cure an air-dryed print, as well as using a flash cure unit or conveyor dryer. Be sure to slow down your dryer belt to ensure the garment is heated long enough to evaporate all the moisture in the ink. This will ensure good washability fo the garment.
