International Coatings, Cerritos, California, is reintroducing its Paramount White screen-printing ink, which was originally suspended during the COVID pandemic due to material supply chain disruptions.
Paramount White is an ultra low-bleed ink, specially engineered to provide exceptional results on 50/50 fabric blends and 100-percent polyester substrates. It is a part of the Flex Cure line of inks that allow printers to select a cure temperature between 275°F (135°C) and 325°F (163°C).
Paramount White’s innovative formula ensures that it remains vibrant and true to color, even on challenging fabrics, allowing print professionals to achieve outstanding results every time, according to the company. With its ability to cure at lower temperatures, Paramount White is ideal for printing on heat-sensitive and dye migrating fabrics and for intricate designs and fine lines.
“We are excited to reintroduce Paramount White to the screen printing community,” says Mark Brouillard, product manager at International Coatings. “With its exceptional performance on 50/50 fabric blends and polyester, FlexCure capabilities, high pigment content, creamy viscosity, and ease of use, Paramount White™ provides printers a game-changing solution that will elevate their craft.”
