Permaprint Premium is a revolutionary water-based printing product with superior performance and colour brightness that eliminates the use of solvents so it’s not only safe for the environment and the printer, but ensures equipment can be easily cleaned with water and solvent fumes are eliminated.

Permaprint Premium inks are suited to printing on sealed paper, cardboard, tyvek, polyesters (mylar), polycarbonates (lexan), some coated metals and poly-styrene. Care should be taken with some vinyls as plasticizer migration may soften the ink over time and also with some uncoated papers as cockling may occur.

Permaprint Premium does not contain ozone-depleting chemicals such as CFC’s or HCHC’S. It is also formulated free of aromatic hydrocarbons, volatile solvent and does not contain PVC resin or any Phthalates Plasticiser. The product is suitable for use on high lay-down hand printed wallpaper and art reproduction, through to stickers, posters and backlit displays.

Permaprint Premium has been formulated to be free of toxic chemicals. The range is water based, thus has no flash point and as such is exempt from flammable Liquids regulations. Permaprint Premium is also free from Lead and other heavy metals.

SUITABLE SUBSTRATES:

PermaPrint Premium inks are suited to printing on sealed
paper, cardboard, tyvek, polyesters (mylar), polycarbonates
(lexan), some coated metals and poly-styrene. Care should be
taken with some vinyls as plasticizer migration may soften the
ink over time. Care should also be taken with some uncoated
papers as cockling may occur.

PRINTING:

Screen meshes of 32-120T (83-305 tpi) monofilament polyester
are suitable for most PermaPrint Premium applications. Ensure
adequate ink on the screen for even print. Between prints,
ensure ink is flooded over entire image area to prevent drying-in.
Ensure that screen emulsions and blockout are water-resistant
and fully cured.

Mesh:

PermaPrint Premium is used commercially with mesh
counts from 32T metric (83 tpi) for high lay down hand
printed wallpaper and art reproduction to 120T (305 tpi)
on applications such as stickers, posters and backlit displays
where maximum detail and transparency is required. General
purpose work is best with mesh from 77-100T (195-255 tpi).
Polyester mesh is preferred over nylon.

Squeegee:

Sharp square urethane squeegees from 55 to 75
Shore hardness are recommended.

Stencil:
Water resistant stencils are essential with PermaPrint
Premium. Dual cure direct emulsions such as Ulano 925WR, Autotype
Plus 8000, or Autotype Plus 7000

Drying:

PermaPrint Premium inks can be air or jet dried and
are also suitable for R.F. or Microwave dryers. PermaPrint
Premium dries by simple evaporation over 20-30 minutes
or can be jet dried at 65-75°C (149-167°F) for approximately
30-45 seconds. With porous substrates, drying is aided by
absorption. Drying rates are affected by ink thickness. Testing
under print shop conditions on substrates is recommended
before commencing.

Ensure that adequate ventilation is provided during drying
and that adequate cooling is allowed before stacking
to prevent blocking problems
