Polyone debuts non-phthalate colour mixing system for inks

Polyone has launched non-phthalate Wilflex Epic Rio, a new colour mixing system for textile inks, which is based on cutting edge pigment technology and formulated for excellent colour strength.

According to the company, these inks are Pantone approved and boast an extended colour range of 18 finished ink mixing components.

“Epic Rio maintains colour precision and flexibility, and can help screen printers save ink and money by achieving colour on press quicker, even with fine mesh-counts,” Polyone said.

“The increased opacity also offers greater processing flexibility with regard to mesh screen selection, print strokes and direct print capability, while maintaining accuracy to Pantone colour standards,” it added.

The company further added that the inks are creamy and smooth right out of the bucket and remain that way throughout production runs.

Designed for ease of printing on a manual press without tiring the press operator, Epic Rio inks are also appropriate for larger production runs with an automatic press.

“They perform well over a wide range of mesh sizes and press parameters, so printability for either manual or automatic textile screen-printing is outstanding,” Polyone observed.

Kevin Romine, Wilflex product manager said, “These new inks will allow textile screen printers to improve opacity and really up their game on colour design because of the increased colour accuracy and strength.” (AR)
