More information about Brildor additives for screen printing binders

  • Used to change the physical and chemical properties of the inks to suit any particular need you might have when printing.
  • You can mix them with binders to make personalising light and dark garments easier.
  • Easy to use. These additives must be mixed with water-based inks before applying them to the fabric.

HYBRID AIRFIX 1 BASE

  • Improves wear resistance by reinforcing the ink’s fixation on the fabric.
  • Applied to enhance the fastness of water-based inks to rubbing and dry/wet cleaning.
  • Improves the grip on difficult garments and increases print durability.
  • Recommended applications:
    • Add 1-1.5% to improve the fastness of any hybrid or water-based ink
    • Mix 1.5-2% for anti-foil applications with either clear or white binders.
    • Add 3% for flock self-adhesive vinyl applications.
  • After adding the Air Fix 1 base, the mixture must be used within 24 hours.

REDUCER BASE

  • This additive acts as a thinner, lowering viscosity and as a retarder, slowing the drying of the ink on the mesh.
  • It softens the consistency of the ink and makes it more manageable, allowing better workability.
  • Perfect for long production runs with breaks or periods of inactivity. 
  • It is recommended to use only 1-3%, although you can add up to 5%. Adding too much thinner will reduce the opacity of the ink and its anti-migration properties.

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

  • It is important to stick to the recommended amount in order to achieve a good result.
  • It is recommended to wash the screens with water and soap.
