The acramines for process printing are transparent screen-printing inks formulated for CMYK printing system on textiles. These inks are intended for printing color images by using separation in four basic colors: CMYK.
The intensity and opacity of the colors change depending on the mesh size of the screen. Rittagraf® process inks are pigmented more than necessary to cover maximum color intensity with any type of mesh. For a good result, it is necessary to correct the intensity of each of the four-color colors using a transparent base. In addition to digital image retouching, lowering the intensity of colors will correct variables such as mesh aperture and dot gain.
Rittagraf® inks are produced in local factories and are designed by specialist screen printing technicians. Following an ecological and environmentally friendly line, the chemists who develop our inks work to reduce their toxicity. They refine ink and pigment formulations to improve the textile industry. Rittagraf® acramines could be considered eco-friendly screen printing textile inks. These textile inks, free of solvents and other toxic compounds, are the best option if you want to start a production with inks of low toxicity and low environmental impact.
Our acramine inks are quite fluid and dry less on screen than other water-based inks. Thanks to their high pigmentation, they present very good color performance. The resistance to washing is excellent but, due to its composition, some fabrics may retain less color in the first wash. Once the garment is washed, the color remains stable.
Testing is required before starting a production.
We have a wide color chart but in addition, Rittagraf® offers the manufacture and customization of special water-based colors for screen printing.
