Pre Treatment Solutions

About pre-treatment

Pre treatment helps to produce a strong bond between ink and fabric. It also makes the ink dry quickly which prevents bleeding, produces crisp outlines and vivid, even colours that last longer after washing.

  • The most commonly used pre treatment is for printing garments with white ink only or with a white-ink base and a colour top-layer.  We offer three different makes - They are Brother, Firebird and Dupont.
  • Firebird FBX Vivid is designed specifically for printing with CMYK ink only (not white ink). It improves colour, fine detail, brightness and washability.  It also causes the ink to dry very quickly and prevents accidental smudging of prints during removal from the printer for heat pressing.       This is a concentrated formula that must be diluted 1:3 with demineralised water.

IMPORTANT - For high quality prints with white ink, pre treatment must be used and it must be applied evenly and in the right quantity to suit the type and colour of fabric that is to be printed.

There are guidelines, but you must carry out your own tests to determine the optimum amount required for your garments and/or your pre treatment machine.   This will result in the best quality prints whilst avoiding waste and pre-treatment marks.
