Water Based Discharge Printing

Would you like your custom printed clothing to have the softest feel?  Most custom screen printing is done with plastisol inks and though they do the job, sometimes it can be a bit ‘tough’.  Plastisol inks don’t contain a solvent, so in order for them to set, you need to put them through a drying process.  The heat causes the ink to stiffen up while it dries and for some all over designs and multi-color designs, that can be irritating.  So what do you do if you want screen printing, but also want it to be lightweight and soft to the touch?  You get water based discharge printing!

Water Based Discharge Printing

Water based discharge printing is a form of screen printing that uses a different type of ink altogether to get the job done.  Water based inks, as denoted in the name, typically use water as a solvent.  In order to set these types of prints, the solvent must evaporate instead of cure like with plastisol inks.  What that means for your prints is that they are much more flexible and not tough at all.  The inks are less viscous which means that you can print over seams more easily, which makes water based inks perfect for all over and wrap around printing.

Now you may be thinking, where does the ‘discharge’ factor into the printing?  Well, with an added discharge agent to the water based ink, you have water based discharge printing!  The discharge agent is responsible for removing the pre-existing color in a garment and which is replaced by the color of your choice.  If you would be interested in trying out custom water based discharge printing, you can come to AMBRO Manufacturing where we can provide our garment decoration services to you.  If you would like to place an order, or if you would like to learn more about our company and customization services, you can contact us by email or by calling us at (908) 806-8337.
