Ryonet’s Green Galaxy inks are water-based and offer a soft hand to prints. “Many customers now expect their prints to have a soft hand and ‘fashion-friendly’ feeling, which plastisols cannot achieve as well as water-based inks,” says Jessica Marshall of Ryonet, adding that they’re perfect for athletic apparel. Ryonet’s Green Galaxy Warp Drive additive reduces cure temperature to as low as 180 degrees for Green Galaxy Water Based Inks. That’s a new step in technology for us, and it’s opening up a lot of doors for many printers to work with large athletic apparel brands, as well as allowing smaller DIY operations to print out of a home more easily with water-based ink.”
