PolyOne Unveils White Ink for Polyester and Cotton Fabrics

  • It has excellent opacity and low-temperature (260-280°F, 127-138°C) cure bleed resistance
  • EPIC Single LC White can help avoid ghosting on cotton substrates when hot stacking garments

Screen printers face fabric complexity challenges on a regular basis. Typically, they work with polyester, cotton-poly blends and 100% cotton garments in a given day. They also often have to switch inks to avoid bleeding, adhesion or fiber problems.

Universal White Ink

PolyOne developed a universal white ink to address this challenge. EPIC Single LC White can produce quality prints on all substrates without creating ghosting. It provides screen printers with a timesaving option and helps simplify their ink room management. It can also help simplify supply chain management and reduce inventory costs.

EPIC Single LC White is an addition to Wilflex’s existing portfolio of white inks. Soon, upgraded formulations will be introduced, including:
  • EPIC Top Score LC White – aimed at 100% polyester sports apparel, ideal for short run jobs
  • EPIC Polywhite LC – provides greater bleed resistance for 100% polyester sports garments
  • EPIC Performance LC White – combines low bleed with ultra-stretch properties
  • EPIC Amazing Bright White – upgraded to improve bleed resistance and opacity on cotton poly blends

EPIC Single LC White inks are commercially available in the U.S. The upgraded white inks portfolio will be launched globally later this year.
