Nylotex NX screen inks are highly flexible products that have been specially formulated for printing onto nylon and synthetic fabrics.
Nylotex NX screen inks are especially suitable for printing onto nylon and synthetic fabrics including many which have been treated for water resistance. Nylotex NX can also be used for producing sportswear, work wear and other types of textile transfer.
Adhesion to Water Resistant Fabrics
The novel chemistry used in Nylotex NX inks makes them suitable for printing onto many synthetic fabrics that have been treated with a water resistant coating. Addition of an optional catalyst can further improve adhesion onto difficult substrates.
The high flexibility and good resistance properties of Nylotex NX inks makes them suitable for producing many types of sportswear and work wear transfer. These transfers can be used to decorate many types of fabric that are otherwise problematic.
PANTONE®* Matching System
Nylotex NX inks have pre-matched formulations for the colours in the coated (‘C’ suffixed) section of the PANTONE® Colour Formula Guide. These formulations have been individually colour matched, and proof printed onto fabrics using commercial printing presses.
