Water base inks are environmentaly friendly and print great on textile materials. These inks have an incredibly soft hand making them great for printing on different kinds of applications. Water based inks are free of most environmentally damaging chemicals such as PVC, phthalate, heavy metals, azo compounds, nonylphenos and formaldehyde. Advantages: Exceptionally soft hand / intense pigment colors / ease of use and breath ability of the ink on fabric / works on most type of garments and materials. Disadvantages: Light water base colors print on light colored fabrics only / colors might loose intensity or wash out up to 20% without proper care or after many washes and repetitive high temperature tumble dry.
