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.
