Hi,

I'm just starting about to buy some waterbased inks for screen printing. I'm looking at getting some catalyst, but it's looking like it will be arond £70 +VAT for a 1ltr.

1// Does anyone know where I can get smaller quantities, say around 250mm?

I've looked around and can only find similar prices and only in 1ltr tubs.

2// Also, should the catalyst be branded the same as the inks, or will any catalyst work?

3// Should I just forget the catalyst and stick with an iron and heat gun when I'm just starting out?

Your help is appreciated,


thanks,

Wicked printing stuff sell catalyst in small quantities.i use just waterbased and although i now have a tunnel dryer i started off with just a heat gun/iron combo and never had any problems.best way is to get a flash curer if you can't get a tunnel dryer.you will be sure of a total cure then:)

Hi Ian,

Thanks for the reply. I know wickedprintingstuff sell 250mm amounts, however I've read too many negative things posted about them. I might give them a go though. They can't be all that bad.

cheers
Liam
