Not sure exactly what your question is, but if you're using waterbased inks to fight fibrillation, it isn't going to help. In fact it will make it worse.I have purchased a few test colors for water based (because i'm looking for a solution for fibrillation/ alternative print style) and i was curious about how well water based colors stay with the shirt after wash out. It seems that most wash out or fade after the first wash (or at least what i am using: Ryonet enviroline WB inks)...
any thoughts about this? I know there is an endless battle going on between plastisol and WB and arguments for both sides, but i just want some testimonies i guess. Tips for working with WB ink and stuff like that.
thanks for any responses!
The reason your waterbased might be fading could be that you are not fully curing it. Curing waterbased is actually tougher then curing plastisol. Plastisol needs to reach a certain temperature, waterbased cures when all of its moisture evaporates. Usually forced air dryers are used for this, and usually longer conveyor dryers are needed.
