Rutland M3 Mixing Ink - Blue #1
Approximate PMS Match = 655C.
The Rutland M3 Ink Mixing System is a non-phthalate finished ink mixing system. M3 colors directly replace the M2 and EM ink mixing colors. They are opaque resulting in excellent coverage on dark garments. The tackfree formula allows printing through a range of mesh counts without the need for a viscosity modifier. Use a white underlay when printing on dark fabrics for that extra “pop” in brightness. No build-up formulations ensure the highest print efficiencies without down time for wiping screens. Mix thousands of finished ink colors by choosing Pantone colors from our M2007 Ink Mixing Software or by custom mixing your own colors.
Instructions: Printing on White Garments: Mix per formulation or by eye to achieve brilliant colors on 100% cotton whites. For extremely soft-hand prints, mix finished color up to 1:1 with Rutland ES0250 Chino Base. Printing on Dark Garments or over an underlay: When printing on dark garments, mix per formulation or custom blend to achieve brilliant colors over an underlay. Use the Low Bleed White on poly/cotton blends and the ES0266 Barrier Base when printing on 100% polyester.
