Compare to: Green Galaxy Meteor White Plastisol Ink
A very good ink
I'm giving this item 5 stars but I just a small caveat. I really really liked the previous version of the Ryonet Meteor White plastisol ink. I received this new Wilflex version while I still had about a pint's worth of the older Meteor left and it allowed me to compare the two products pretty well.
<br>First, the old meteor looks like a warmer white in the tub. The new is a cooler almost blue-white. The new ink has a lot more body - it's very reminiscent of the old Ryonet White plastisol (which I think used to be made by CCI). It isn't quite as hard to wrangle as the CCI stuff but it does feel stiffer out of the tub than the older Meteor White, even after stirring it for a while.
<br>Coverage is good. I've used 110 and 160 mesh screens so far with no issues. It is has good opacity.
<br>This is a very good ink and I think it's a good value for the price. I will continue to use it as my go-to white plastisol. My arms (manual printer here) kinda miss the smoother old stuff.
Bring Back The Old Meteor White
Really disappointed that Ryonet has stopped offering their green galaxy meteor white in gallons. It was so much better than this new collaboration with Wilflex. This new ink has good coverage, but is so much thicker and harder to work with. Even after tireless mixing, it's so thick that it will literally build up on the back of your squeegee and stand right up. My dad is in this business as well and has the same complaints. Feels like they ruined a good thing.
A Change for The Worse
by Mike The T Shirt Guy
Wow, what a disappointment this ink is compared to the older version of the white meteor. I see little difference between this and any other thick white ink. Please bring back the original version of white meteor, it was the white I've ever used.
New Lava Meteor White
Is there anything comparable to the old Meteor White we can still purchase? Not too happy with this new version. The old white was so much easier to print with and laid down just as bright.
