PVC Free Screen Printing Ink: Evolution 2 NX Basic Colours
Need PVC-free inks that are easier to use than water-based?
Do you want inks that comply with the highest safety standards?
Lancer Evolution Series 2 NX is a PVC free screen printing ink that works like plastisol, thereby offering the ease of use and many other advantages that come from plastisol, but now without any PVC, phthalates, or any other harmful substances.
PVC in screen printing inks is becoming a major factor for companies that work for brand names and also for those that are thinking ahead and wanting to offer the average customer much safer ink.
Evolution 2 NX – A New Breed of PVC Free Screen Printing Ink
A brand new formulation of Evolution, Lancer Group’s phthalate and PVC free screen printing ink now offers various improvements over previous formulations. This includes increased wash fastness, crock-resistance, inter-coat adhesion between colours, and a vastly lower cure temperature.
Lower Cure Temperature
While there are the obvious savings to be made in overall energy usage in the business, a lower cure temperature is also beneficial as an aid to resisting dye migration or “bleed” when printing poly/cotton blends and 100% polyester garments. For particularly awkward polyester fabrics, the Evolution range also offers a grey under base called Defender.
Soft Hand Feel without Drying in the Screen
Evolution PVC free screen printing ink also offers advantages over other PVC and phthalate free ink systems by offering printers a hand-feel similar to water based inks, but with the conveniences normally offered by plastisol ink, including opacity and colour consistency.
High-resolution designs can easily be printed, as stencils will stay open throughout the entire print run. Evolution ink does not air dry and requires a full heat cure.
Evolution Series 2 NX PVC free plastisol-style ink yields excellent results in the production of cold peel transfers.
