Libra Matte Mixing Base for Silicone Ink
Due to manufacturer shortages, silicone products are temporarily not eligible for our Free Shipping promotion. All Silicone ink products ship from our NC location only.
Libra™ Matte Mixing Base is a medium viscosity opaque base with excellent printability to bring a matte effect to your silicone prints. The ink is used with Libra™ pigments and toners for a matte effect with extreme stretchability while maintaining a super-soft flexible hand.
Use 3-5 parts Libra™ Catalyst and 0.5-3 parts Libra™ Retardant. Libra™ pigments or toners can be added up to 20 parts. Mix well and print. To prevent wastage only catalyze what is needed to print for 4 hours. Colors should be made in accordance with Libra™ IMS3.0 Pantone® mixing system with a maximum of 20% pigment loading. A digital scale is required to achieve accurate weight and percentage ratios.
