Perfetto Clear is a clear mixing base used to create custom ink colors or Pantone® color matches with AquaTint Pigments. PMS color formulas for both white fabric and colored garments with an underbase are provided through the Virus Mixing System, an easy-to-use online tool for PMS color match formulas.
Just one water-based ink for many fabrics, Perfetto inks can be used on 100% Polyester, 100% Cotton, Cotton/Poly blends and tri-blends through mesh counts up to 305 t/in, guaranteeing the softest hand and retention of high quality details with astonishing accuracy.
Very easy to use water-based ink that ensures extraordinary dot-gain control, allowing for the highest printing precision and low ink consumption - saving you more money at the press than other water based inks on the market.
To eliminate dye-migration on troublesome polyester fabrics, No Sublimation Base can be used as an underbase.
PVC-Free, Non-Phthalate, and Formaldehyde-Free.

Thoroughly mix AquaTint Pigments into Perfetto Clear base. Create your own ink colors or use the online Virus Mixing System to create Pantone® color matches for light and dark garments. "Dark garment" color formulas are designed to be printed on top of a white underbase, regardless of the garment color. If no underbase will be printed, use a "light garment" color formula. Once pigments are thoroughly mixed into the base, ink should be printed right from the container without modification. If additives are needed, select from the suitable additives below (all additives listed are Formaldehyde and Phthalate Free):
- Improve Wash Resistance: Add 3% UNIVERSAL FIX
- Further Improve Screen Stability: Add 3-5% HYDRACRYL RETARDER
