Permaset Permatone Blue
Permaset Permatone Blue is a 100% solvent-free water based textile ink designed for direct wet-on-wet printing on a wide range of natural and synthetic fabrics. Once heat cured, it offers a matchless balance of color brightness, softness and durability without the need of extra additives. Always test your inks on the substrate to ensure proper adhesion prior to production for desired look and effect when fully dried.
Permatone is specifically designed for color matching, enabling the ink to produce over 900 colors when mixed with other Permatone Mixing System inks. Along with its excellent screen stability and easy clean-up, it meets all of the requirements of the Global Organic Textile Standards and is certified and approved by Soil Association Certification Ltd. through International Organic Accreditation Services.
Eco Credentials: Permatone has been granted certification by the Soil Association of the UK, having successfully met the requirements of the Global Organic Textiles Standards (GOTS) for non-organic chemical inputs for use in organic textile processing; Permatone is the only ink outside of the UK to receive such certification.

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.
