Discharge printing is a process where you can screen print an ink onto a dark T Shirt which will remove the dark colour of garment and replace it with a different colour. Discharge printing gives a very soft hand but with a bright print.
- Union offer the Plasticharge range which is a plastisol ink with discharge properties giving bright, colourful and soft hand prints on discharge dyed garments.
- Please note that not all garments will ‘discharge’, garments should be 100% cotton – always test on a small batch to make sure you get the result you want.
- For the discharge process to work, you do need a tunnel dryer (the longer the better) – typically 90-120 seconds dwell time needed for a good cure. You also need well ventilated premises (Plasticharge does give off an odour) and printers should read the MSDS and be aware of any health and safety consideration. For low production you can use a heat press but tunnel dryer is best.
