CCI W-Base Clear Waterbase Mixing Base / Extender
W-Base is a clear base for waterbase printing. W-Base is designed to be used with pigment systems or as an extender for standard waterbase colors. W-Base has great color reflection for strong vivid colors when mixed with CCI's CMS Color Mixing System. W-Base can be mixed with other pigments as well. W-Base's rheology and flow characteristics allow it to be printed in long runs without drying in the screen. This ink produces very fine image detail and a softer hand. W-Base is designed to be used with suitable, non-coated, cotton fabrics.

Printed fabric should be cured for a minimum of 90 seconds at 360°F. Ideally, printed fabric should be cured for three minutes at 300-320°F. Airflow is crucial to remove steam outside of dryer chamber. If your conveyor dryer does not have forced air and proper ventilation, gates should be opened as high as possible to help allow steam from escaping, and ink to reach a full cure.
Storage and Clean Up
Keep containers tightly sealed, and store in a cool, well-ventilated area. Ink should be removed from screen as soon as printing is completed. Water based inks can typically be easily cleaned with just water. If ink is allowed to dry on screen or other surface, you can use one of our
water based ink cleaners.
