Water-based textile ink supplier MagnaColour has said the launch of a new range of products aims “to make the impossible possible”.

The four new products include MagnaPrint Aquaflex, a water-based ink that has the performance of PVC; MagnaPrint ULF Discharge, which has been designed to avoid the use of formaldehyde when printing on darker materials and offers superior wash-fastness; MagnaPrint HB, which is a slow-drying water-based ink, formulated for use when fine detail and high definition printing is required; and MagnaPrint ND Soft Bases, a non-drying ink that can print onto white or pale garments as well as any PVC ink, but is, says MagnaColour, “far more economical”.

Jeanette Hardy, sales director at MagnaColour, said: “We’re known as a leading advocate of environmentally sensitive inks, for which there’s a strong retailer and consumer demand. In the past, performance has been used as an excuse for not using water-based inks. In reality, as technology and processes advance, we’re making the impossible possible, with water-based technology.”
