The EC primaries for 4 Color Process methods are available in Standard strength. The pigments in this EC series have been carefully selected for purity and brightness.


  • Transparent, intense primary colors designed especially for 4-color process printing.
  • Bright primaries for maximum color range.
  • Prints through a variety of mesh counts which decrease the need to print spot colors for brightness
  • Match color key fast with these pure pigments


Supply the color separator with printed strike offs of each primary printed through the mesh selected for the production run for more accurate color reproduction from the film positives. Improved printing techniques will offer maximum color saturation and ink penetration into the fibers with the least amount of dot gain. Set machine pressure for maximum penetration. Print the single colors separately and then in 2 or 3 color combinations. Compare each to the color key. Not recommended for printing on dark fabrics. Note: Should the yellow appear too strong, (reds, greens, and browns, are too yellow) extend with MC0125 Process extender base. Print the cyan and magenta full strength.
