DTFing with Image Armor DTF Ink

UV ISSUES WITH YOUR PRETREAT? WATCH OUR WEBINAR!

Image Armor just released our newest pretreatment that is UV RESISTANT – A MUST FOR THIS SUMMER SEASON! TITANIUM is the DTG industry's newest and most advanced pretreatment available on the market today that will NOT UV discolor in direct sunlight prior to washing. With this totally new formulation, TITANIUM allows awesome white ink prints on lighter and pastel colored garments without worrying about if your customer will wear the shirt out in the summer sun before washing it (and turning your pretreated area yellow). This is just ONE of many new reasons why you should try it out.

Shedding Some Light on UV & DTG Printing

In the direct to garment printing industry we normally don't hear anyone talk about this issue, but white ink DTG pretreatments have a serious side effect if the shirt is not washed prior to wearing – and kept out of direct sunlight until it is washed.

Typically, most white ink DTG pretreatments will yellow quickly when exposed to direct sunlight. Even on a cloudy day when it is overcast, a pretreated area – if not washed prior to UV exposure – will yellow, and quickly. This has been an on-going issue for DTG since the beginning. However, when pretreating darker colored shirts, this effect isn't as noticeable due to the fact that the shirt can “hide” this discoloration. On a lighter colored shirt, it is much more evident and easily seen.

Here at Image Armor we have been working diligently to improve the DTG printing process and make the entire printing process better. TITANIUM is our newest pretreatment we are releasing soon that will kick over white ink quickly, work with virtually every DTG printer on the market (except Kornit), and will generally not yellow when exposed directly to UV radiation prior to washing.
