The first discharge liquid introduced for inkjet printers that can discharge color on cotton materials dyed with reactive dyes. After discharge printing, the colored substances are nuetralized by applying heat (heat press, etc). The discharge effect appears only after heat treatment.The gradations of discharged images will be beautifully rendered.
*Discharge results depend largely on organic dyeing. Please make sure to make a test print of the garment beforehand.
*The concentration of formaldehyde in discharged T-shirts exceeds Oeko-tex Standard 100.Please wash all finished products before wearing.
There are several discharging methods as follows:
[Printing only by discharge liquid]
Print the image by using only the discharge liquid.Create a monochrome image as the original image.
[Printing simultaneously with color image]
Print the color ink and the discharge liquid simultaneously.If a colored T-shirt is printed with only the color ink, the image does not stand out. Printing by simultaneously using the discharge liquid removes the color on the T-shirt, and the color ink obtains good color development.
Mimaki's unique textile pigment (TP) ink preserves breathability and water absorbency and is tender to your skin. It is a highly safe ink containing only very limited formaldehyde. Because of special ink binder, your products are thermoset only after heating treatment. TP is an ink that can be easily handled without need of special knowledge of dyeing chemistry, etc. The wash fastness is class 4 to 5 in the case of cotton material.
*Color fastness to washing differs according to the garment materials, etc. Please confirm the colorfastness yourself by first washing finished garments.
*Printed fabrics contain very low levels of formaldehyde, please don't use it for baby goods.
