  • No viscosity modifications necessary
  • Can be tinted with upto 20% color booster to make subdued metallic colors
  • Extreme high luster


NPT Metallic inks requires stirring before printing. Print directly onto substrates. NPT Metallic inks are normally printed through 86 t/in ( 34 t/cm). Recommend a medium Durometer squeegee for maximum coverage. NPT Metallics may tarnish and dull starting with the first wash. For maximum brilliance insure a full cure of 320ºF (160°C.) and wash with garment turned inside out. Your testing should include a wash test prior to running production runs with NPT Metallic Inks to make sure the results meet your specifications.


Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image.
