These professional, permanent, screen printing inks are for many porous and non-porous surfaces. A technological break-through, open time on the screen has been greatly extended, giving the user more time to work with individual colors without having them dry in the screen. Jacquard’s Screen Printing Inks are archival and light-fast with great resolution. The opacity of the opaque colors is unparalleled. They won’t wrinkle paper when screening art prints. Clean up is easy with soap and water. The Screen Inks are washable and dry-cleanable on natural and synthetic fabrics. Fabrics must be heat set for permanence and durability or allowed to air cure at least 72 hours.

Discharge/Reduction Agent is a strong color remover used as a discharge medium for a wide spectrum of dyes. It is also used as a strong reduction agent for the fixation of vat dyes. It is most commonly used in the printing processes.
Jacquard Puff Additive is used to increase the relief of prints on paper, fabric and other surfaces. Simply mix a little of the additive into your Jacquard Screen Ink (up to 20%), print as usual and then apply heat to your print. The micro-spheres in the Puff Additive expand with heat, giving you a raised print only after heating. Once puffed, the print is wash-fast and dry cleanable.

Use: Add to Jacquard Screen Ink (JSI) up to 20% by weight. Mix thoroughly. Pot life of mixture is indefinite. Apply heat to print and ink will puff in all directions. For use on paper, fabric, and other surfaces.
Finish: Puff Additive has a matte finish and will affect the semi-gloss finish of JSI in proportion to the amount added.
Opacity: Puff Additive becomes opaque upon expansion and will opacify JSI in proportion to the amount added.
Mesh Count: 80-305/inch (32T-122T cm) or according to ink specifications. JSI is recommended with mesh counts 80-160/inch (32T-64T cm).
Drying/Curing: While print is wet, heat the entire ink deposit to 275˚F/135˚C using a hot air gun or oven to puff. Do not overheat. For best results, allow ink to air cure 72 hours once puffed before washing.
Cleanup: Cleans up with water or mild detergent.
CAUTION: Always test this product for wash-ability and durability prior to production.
