Non-toxic Extremely Elastic Polyurethane Copolymer Rubber Ink for Textile Silkscreen Printing


Aquasol Aquaprene White / Clear (SD) are formulated to be suitable for elastic 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 Aquaprene 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 Aquaprene White / Clear (SD) are also
environment compliant and free of the following chemicals;
1. Formaldehyde
2. Azo
3. Poly vinyl chloride (PVC)
4. All Phthalates
5. Alkyl phenol ethoxylate (APEO)
6. Aromatic solvents
7. Heavy metals
The Aquasol Aquaprene 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 Aquaprene White (SD) – Highly opaque and highly elastic with brilliant white tone. Suitable for
prints on dark fabric.

Aquasol Aquaprene Clear (SD) – Transparent and highly elastic. Suitable to be used in combination with
Aquasol Aquaprene White SD for colour prints. Suitable to be used for tone and process printing.

Application Procedure

Aquasol Aquaprene White / Clear (SD) are 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
Aquaprene White / Clear (SD) are suitable for silkscreen prints with screen mesh sizes of 1000-1300. For
iner 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.
