Five reasons to use PERMASET First Down White
Five great reasons to use PERMASET First Down White in place of discharge
ONE: Avoid time pressure and waste
First and foremost, no chemicals, so no smells, no rush and no waste. Once you add the discharge chemical, the clock is ticking, so you must print the entire batch within 2 hours. Any ink unused at that time must be disposed of, so there's a significant wastage factor.
With PERMASET First Down White, it's ready to use straight out of the pail and you can take as long as the job requires. And at the end, any unused ink can be captured, stored and used on the next job.
TWO: What you see is what you get
When you use PERMASET First Down White, you get to see what you're printing from the very first print. A complaint of discharge systems is that if a design mistake is made in any one of the screens, then you don't get to see it until it comes out of the drying tunnel, by which time potentially 20 or 30 or 50 shirts have been printed, and that's if someone is monitoring what comes out of the oven.
THREE: Health & Safety
The lack of need for the use of chemicals that are required in a discharge system eliminates any need for exposure for your staff. No chemicals, no smells and no headaches contributes to a safer workplace for you and your staff and a healthier environment for your community.
The lack of a chemical addition process required with discharge printing reduces an opportunity for the introduction of variability into your processes (e.g. in staff mixing practices). You'll also get a more consistent result from one shirt color to the next and one shirt maker to the next. You don't know whether this year's black shirt was a surplus pink shirt last year, or brown, or green or orange or purple, so you don't know what color it will come out with discharge. the reduced variability achieved through printing one standard ink as a base onto all shirts of whatever color puts you back in control; you control the inputs and you control the processes so you get reproducible results.
FIVE: Organic approval
PERMASET First Down White has Organic Approval from the Soil Association in the UK (continuously since 2012).
Now you have five great reasons to choose PERMASET First Down White.
