XOLB-155 Optimum White is a highly opaque White ink designed for printing on 100 % Cotton and Cotton/Poly Blends. Due to its opacity, this ink provides excellent coverage even on dark garments. The Optimum White has a creamy body that is smooth flowing and provides good fiber mat down properties. This ink can be used as stand-alone White or as an underbase depending on your needs. Optimum White is a utility white ink with good low bleed strength, and is fast shearing.


  • Print through fine meshes without adding modifiers.
  • Fast flashing provides shorter dwell times, higher throughput
  • No modifiers needed - can print through fine meshes directly.
  • Suitable for automatic or manual press


For best results flood the image and print using a sharp 65-90-65 durometer squeegee. Use of 86-305 mc in (34 -120 mc. cm) mesh taut screens (25 newtons or higher) are strongly recommended. Use any direct emulsion or capillary film. Parameters vary between all flash units. Flash for 2-3 seconds with the ink deposit reaching 150-250žF (65-121žC) to attain a curing temperature of 320F (160C). Ink should be dry and without tack.
