Soil association approval for inks
After some pretty mega paperwork, Colormaker Industries have received organic certification from the Soil Assocation for their Permatone range of inks (the ones we use for textile printing). It's great news - Colormaker have worked really hard to develop products that are water based, solvent free or both. The Permatone range in particular is an outcome of significant ongoing investment in Research and Development.
David Stuart (the MD of Colormaker and a good friend) is stoked. "This gives us a clear competitive edge," he says. We say "well done!" These inks are 100% solvent free, yet still deliver really pure, vibrant colour, an exceptionally superior soft handle and excellent durability.Posted in Screen Printing, Ethics and Environment by Hannah on Sunday 4 March 2012
