white ink

Postby mrfun » Sat Aug 04, 2012 10:59 pm

Hi.
I'm looking for the most opaque white ink to print onto black cotton.
I guess that plastisol would work best.
What do you use?
Thanks.

Any particular brand of white ink?
Does extender affect opacity?
Thanks.

Extender makes the white printable. Flashing makes it opaque.

There is an ink that contains an oxidant that neutralizes the black dye of the fabric. It is like having an ink with a built-in bleach. The ink is water based. Contact Nazdar.Com

i use lo-bleed diamond white by union ink. you will have to flash the shirt between your double print. depending on how detailed the artwork is i alwas expose white imprints on either a 110 mesh screen or sometimes even as low as an 83 mesh screen.
