Published on 2011-10-21. Author : SpecialChem

KENNESAW, Georgia -- PolyOne Corporation announced an innovative addition to its line of non-phthalate Wilflex™ Epic™ Series Screen Printing Inks. The new offering, Wilflex™ Epic™ Warrior LB White, is a general purpose, non-phthalate white that can be used as an underbase flash white or as a highlight white on a variety of substrates. This high-performance white, configured to work on both 100% cotton and the full range of poly/cotton blend combinations, eliminates the need to stock multiple, general-purpose whites for specific textile blends.

Frank Burkus, Marketing and Technology Director for PolyOne Wilflex Inks said, "This expansion of our line of Wilflex Epic non-phthalate inks can increase the efficiency of our customers' ink rooms. PolyOne's advanced, non-phthalate ink technology and focus on ink room management helps our customers win in a highly competitive marketplace."

Wilflex™ Epic™ Warrior LB White offers superior printability and a smooth, bright surface with an excellent matte finish. The odorless ink has a fast flash time with low after-tack. It has superior opacity and can be used where moderate bleed resistance is required.

  • CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) 2008, Section 101, Lead Content in Substrates (<100 ppm lead)
