Default Re: Discharge Ink fading after wash

If you are not opposed to printing your discharge with plastisol, union inks make a plastisol discharge product called plasticharge that does a great job of using bright pigmented plastisol inks with a discharge additive. It makes the curing process quicker, the inks stay bright and you deal with less water base issues like inks drying in the screen or screens breaking down.

The resulting print feels a lot like water base discharge, and the printing process is so much less of a headache.

We still use waterbase for white discharge, but all the colored discharge from my shop is plasticharge from union.

check it out. Especially if you already have some union ink in your shop.
