AquaBrite® Textile Colors are water-based screen printing inks for fabric. As the name suggests, water-based inks are those which can be dissolved in water. Such inks use water as the main component to carry the color pigment.
Water-based ink completely soaks into the fabric instead of sitting on it. This is the reason why water-based screen printing inks give a soft, clean, and a long-lasting print. Moreover, one with no, or little screen printing experience can work efficiently with water-based ink.
Metallic binder is used as a medium for you to add metallic powders allowing you to screen print metallic colors.
AquaBrite® Textile Colors are screen printing inks designed for printing on light colored backgrounds.
From the product label:
AquaBrite® Textile Colors are supplied in ready-to-use form, except for white, which should be used in concentrated form. They should be heat set at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. You may, however, let the printed garments dry at room temperature and then iron from the reverse side or use a tumble dryer. Screens made with Holden’s Emulsion 250 are recommended. Use meshes between 110 and 160 for best results. Higher mesh count will require the addition of propylene glycol to increase flow.
