Ultrasoft Series is a very versatile plastisol ink, formulated for direct printing and heat transfer manufacturing. They provide good coverage on light and medium-colored garments. When printing on dark fabrics, a fabric appropriate white underbase is recommended. Ultrasoft’s new formulation helps eliminate press stoppages due to build-up on the backs of screens. As its name indicates this product provides an extremely soft hand and if required can be modified to be even softer by adding compatible softhand extender bases and modifiers.
