    WHY CHOOSE MAGNACOLOURS® WATER-BASED INKS

    Our superior formulas lower production costs, speed up production processes and ultimately reduce overall spend. Our slow-drying inks are fast curing and require low temperatures and quick flash times.

What are Water-based Inks?

Water-based vs. Plastisol Inks

Water based inks are made up mostly of acrylic resins or hybrid blends of acrylic resin and polyurethanes. Water based ink will always provide a softer print because most of the ink is made up of soft resins and water which evaporates during the curing process. Plastisol ink is very easy to print but limited on softness when printed along with some brand compliance restrictions.
