Ecotex Discharge Inks are bright, vivid, and can be mixed together to create thousands of colors. This water-based ink is perfect for screen printing on fabric textiles. It can be printed on high mesh counts, allowing for very fine image detail. The ink can also be used with other inks to create multiple effects.
For best results, we recommend using a water-resistant emulsion such as WR-Blue or DC-Pink for the emulsion recommendations.
Our ink can be used straight out of the bottle as a traditional water-based ink. However, we recommend using this technique only on light-colored garments.
This ink can also be used as a discharge ink by adding the discharge powder. To use it as a discharge ink, add enough discharge powder to the amount of ink you need for the print run. The recommended amount is somewhere between 3-5% by weight. Mix thoroughly. Once the powder is added to the ink, it will last for one hour.
To cure the ink, heat it for 90 seconds at 320°F. For best results, heat it for 2-3 minutes at 300-320°F.
