Non-toxic Extremely Elastic Polyurethane Copolymer Rubber Ink for Textile Silkscreen Printing
Aquasol Aquamax White / Clear SD is formulated to be suitable for highly flexible silkscreen prints on cotton
and polyester-cotton blend fabric. Aquasol Fixer NF, which is a formaldehyde-free fixer, can be added if
required. The Aquasol Aquamax White / Clear SD provides a satin finish with exceptional softness,
elasticity, smoothness and handfeel. In addition, the prints are tack free and provide good anti-block
properties (no face-to-face sticky transfer of inks). The Aquasol Aquamax White / Clear SD is also
environment compliant and free of the following chemicals;
3. Poly vinyl chloride (PVC)
4. All Phthalates
5. Alkyl phenol ethoxylate (APEO)
6. Aromatic solvents
7. Heavy metals
The Aquasol Aquamax White / Clear SD grades differ in terms of opacity and are used based on the required
colours of the print and of the fabric.
Aquasol Aquamax White SD – Highly opaque and highly elastic with brilliant white tone. Suitable for
prints on dark fabric.
Aquasol Aquamax Clear SD – Transparent and highly elastic. Suitable to be used in combination with
Aquasol Aquamax White SD for colour prints. Suitable to be used for tone and process printing.
Aquasol Aquamax White / Clear SD is thixotropic and can become more viscous when left standing for
prolonged periods of time. However, the viscosity will reduce with stirring or agitation during the usual
process of printing. Small amounts of clean water can be added to reduce viscosity if necessary. Aquasol
Aquamax White / Clear SD is suitable for silkscreen prints with screen mesh sizes of 1000-1300. For finer
screen prints (1500-2000) the addition of Aquasol Humidifier is recommended to slow down the drying
process. After drying, the prints are fully cured at 150oC for ~2 min. or heatpress at 135oC for 10 s. Aquasol
Fixer NF can be added at 1-3% to further improve wash/colour fastness if necessary.
Do not exceed one year from date of manufacture. Protect from frost (>5oC). Keep lids tightly closed at all
times after use
