General Information:

Ready-to-use print water based ink for black printing on light or dark cotton and other non dye migrating fabrics.

Mesh Guidelines:

Can be used with any mesh between 156-305

Stencil/Emulsion Guidelines:

We recommend using either a water resistant emulsion like Ryonet WBP or using an emulsion hardener like Ryonet Harden-X.

Mixing info:

This product can be mixed with transparent and covering ink from the AB series. 

Printing Instructions:

Load screen with plenty of Pitch Black ink. Flood screen prior to printing. Pitch Black can be printed with a push or pull squeegee stroke. After printing, flood screen allowing ink to sit on top of image to avoid drying. If screen clogs or exhibits dry ink in the print, re-flood and aggressively print again, this should clear the screen. If it does not clear the screen, spray a small amount of warm water into the stuck areas of the screen and wipe out with a rag. If you are leaving your screen for an extended period of time be sure to leave your screen flooded completely. If your ink begins to scale over, spray with water to rewet ink. Pitch Black can be printed with other water based inks and with plastisol inks. 

Flashing Instructions:

For flashing, forced air flash is optimal. Flash until dry to the touch.

Printing on an under base:

Green Galaxy’s AB Water Base Colors can be printed on top of Comet White or a discharge under base. Ensure the under base is properly flashed so that it is dry before printing AB color on top. Wash test to ensure inner layer adhesion.

Curing Instructions:

Printed fabric should be cured for a minimum of 90 seconds at 360°F. Ideally, printed fabric should be cured for three minutes at 300–320°F. 


After printing, perform a stretch test to ensure elasticity. It is always recommend to perform a wash test to ensure proper cure prior to going into production. You may also run abrasion testing to watch for flaking and test adhesion. Increase cure dwell time if testing fails.

Clean Up:

Ink should be removed from screen as soon as printing is completed. General wash-up (on ink that has not dried) can be done with water, though using Enviro-Solve is much easier and recommended. For aggressive or dried screens, use Enviro-Solve to dissolve ink and blast out areas of stuck ink with water pressure. 

Storage info:

Keep container(s) tightly closed. Store in cool, well ventilated location that is locked. 

General Safety Precautions:

Do not breathe vapors. Wear protective gloves. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using product. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Dispose of this product in accordance with local, regional, national and international regulations as specified.
