This product must be properly mixed with a Catalyst before printing. It is an RFU (Ready For Use) ink and not a Pigment Concentrate and thus intended as a standalone White.
Silicone inks are a new and exciting ink type that allows for the ultimate in low temperature curing and stretchability. The soft, smooth feel (hand) is unlike anything that can be achieved with plastisol or water based inks, and its durability makes it the perfect ink type for athletic uniforms and polyester materials.
When printers need to meet specific color-matching criteria, concentrated Libra silicone color pigments are compatible with IMS 3.0 color matching formulas to provide a complete array of color choices. You can use this combination of pigments to create and match any desired color using the Avient Ink Management System (IMS) software, available to registered users HERE.
Using the IMS Ink Management Software, you can quickly look up a needed Pantone color and the software will give you the exact pigments and quantities to use. To ensure accurate color results and mix ratios, the use of a digital scale is required.
Inks in the Libra portfolio have been formulated to meet stringent requirements of major brands’ Restricted Substance Lists (RSLs) so printers can be confident that their prints will meet industry compliance standards regardless of brand or print location.
The IMS Ink Management System can be used to create the colors you need via a convenient software download and is available to registered Zodiac Libra users HERE. A digital scale is required to achieve accurate weight and percentage ratios.
