In an industry first, MagnaColours has released a new range of formaldehyde-free discharge bases.
The range creates bold, bright and beautiful discharge effects, using a formaldehyde-free method, with no compromise on quality, nor does the garment need to be washed after curing. Not only benefiting the industry environmentally, it also makes the printing process easier and more time effective, while producing successful results.
Magna Colours managing director, Tom Abbey said: “There was a demand from manufacturers to effectively print onto dark materials using discharge techniques, without having to use formaldehyde products. As the leading producer of water-based inks, this was something we were perfectly placed to do. It was a long standing idea in the industry that water-based inks could not achieve the same results as those containing formaldehyde, but we’ve provided an outstanding solution, once again.
While wanting to eliminate the use of formaldehyde, another key requirement was wash durability to prevent fading. To meet the toughest demand, Magna developed MagnaPrint Discharge Fastness Enhancer. Not only has Magna answered the call for an effective water-based alternative, it has provided a solution to an industry problem, helping brands to provide safe, environmentally friendly, durable, high quality products for their customers.
