Recommendations and advice

Before starting your production, we recommend that you check the compatibility and resistance of the ink on a piece of textile by washing the finished article following the conditions stipulated on its label. A decrease in resistance upon washing can occur for certain tinting processes with hues with a very rich base or very white (transparent or pastel hues). Resistance to washing can also decrease due to the fibrillation (fibres rising through the printed image). This occurs independently of the polymerisation of the ink. High washing temperatures combined with strong detergents can cause colour changes in certain hues.
