MagnaColours has specified that SPIRO’s new S287X Aircool Tee is the perfect garment for customisation with its eco-friendly range of water based inks.

SPIRO’s S287X Aircool Tee offers the perfect print base for MagnaColours’ AquaFlex V2 water-based high solids ink and Migration Eliminator V2 product, and has had much success with the non-toxic water-based ink.

PVC and formaldehyde-free, MagnaColours’ range of water-based inks offer the screen printing industry an eco-friendly, non-toxic alternative to plastisols. The inks are perfect for polyester fabric, including high performance garments such as SPIRO’s S287X Aircool Tee, and offer a stretchy soft feel to the garment. Other benefits include; quick curing, short flash times, formulations that are slow to dry in the screen and the ability to be pigmented to any shade.

Helen Parry, managing director for MagnaColours, said: “The high performance, S287X Aircool Tee by SPIRO is the perfect garment to showcase what’s possible with MagnaColours water-based inks. Together we’ve demonstrated the superb print effects that can be achieved on performance fabrics when making the switch to our range of eco-friendly, PVC-free inks.”

Managing director for SPIRO, David Sanders-Smith, added: “We were so impressed by the performance of MagnaColours’ inks and the superb print quality they offered that we wanted to highlight the many benefits of water-based inks and communicate this to the wider industry. Our S287X Aircool Tee is a great performance shirt that offers the wearer both comfort and technical performance; it’s the ideal backdrop to promote any event, team or uniform brand.”

Part of SPIRO’s popular IMPACT Fitness Wear range, the S287X Aircool Tee is an air-dry soft mesh fabric tee with High Tec stretch. It features a quick-dry finish and moisture-wicking fibres to keep the wearer dry and cool. While it is particularly suited for water-based inks, the S287X is also suitable for embroidery and transfer application.
