Dye Discharge System (DC –2012 / 2018 Series)
Excalibur’s formaldehyde-free Dye Discharge System yields excellent results when printers want a soft-hand feel on 100% cotton dark garments.
When activated with DC-294 Discharge Agent the printed inks sink down into the fabrics destroying the dyes in the garment. The DC-2012 is a clear that can be pigmented with Excalibur’s Colourtone or PCW Pigments to produce dischargeable colors, can be printed as an under base for plastisol color to be printed on top of, or can be used by itself to discharge garments to the original straw color of the cotton. The DC-2018 is a highly pigmented white to use as a stand-alone white or as an under base to overprint plastisol colors.
Either ink when used as an under base will produce softer prints when compared to traditional plastisol under bases. Because different garment manufacturers use different dyes and processes to manufacture their garments testing is required to determine how well this process will work on a particular brand and color of garment.
