Silk SCREEN INK


Derivan silk Screen Ink is a totally water-based  screen printing ink.

Derivan Screen Ink has been formulated as a safe, non-toxic silk screen printing ink for fabric and can also be used for tie-dyeing. It can be used in the classroom or at home safely without the worry of being exposed to harmful solvents such as white spirits, turps or thinners. Derivan Screen Ink is water-based and washes up in water (before it is heat set) but has excellent rub resistance and lightfastness once heat set.

HEAT SETTING


Paints used in fabric printing require heat fixing in order to become wash proof. Any type of heat can be used for this purpose. Heat tunnels or ovens may be used, but the most common form of heat fixing is the use of household iron. The main points to be observed are:

Ensure your design has completely air dried before it is heat fixed.

When heat fixing, apply heat evenly and continuously for the required time over the image.

Be sure not to scorch or burn the image or garment by keeping the iron moving constantly. Remove the iron briefly if the garment is getting too hot before continuing.

Use a tea towel or another piece of cotton cloth over the image to iron on. Do not use the iron in direct contact with the image.

Heat fix times and temperatures: Please note heat fixing times and temperatures are subject to vary depending on the accuracy of the settings in the appliance to be used.   The following is a guide only:

 Cotton, calico, linen, rayon 4-5mins at 140°C -180°C

 Synthetics, nylon, polyester, tetron, acrylic 5-8mins at 115°C -130°C

It is important to remember that valuable projects always warrant a test. Heat fixing tests should always be done on the fabric to determine the temperature and time required

 

to make the image fast (permanent) but without scorching the particular fabric. Test by heat

You’ll need to set the fabric paint with heat. In order for the paint to set permanently into the fabric, it has to be set with heat. Check ahead of time that the fabric you’re using can be treated with heat since this step ensures that your design will last much longer than without it.
