GSG Launches New Line of Plastisol Ink
For printing on cotton, blends, and polyesters.
Vortex premium plastisol inks, a new line from GSG, are available in 21 colors with a matte finish. The inks are designed for high production wet-on-wet printing on 100-percent cotton, cotton blends, and polyesters. GSG says the ink produces prints with a soft hand, but recommends a soft hand additive of up to 5% to achieve “fashion soft.” The ink should be tested with a low-bleed white underbase when used on synthetic fabrics. Vortex cures at 320 F while gelling at 230 F and is resistant to buildup. Mesh counts of 110 to 305 recommended.
