Fuel the vibrancy of your water based printing with these uniquely formaldehyde-free Green Galaxy™ Booster Inks. These versatile fluorescent water based RFU inks can be printed directly onto cotton or synthetic fibers, mixed into Green Galaxy™ Water Based Inks for a boost in vibrancy, and used in tandem with the Green Galaxy™ Fusion Mixing System to achieve certain Pantone® colors. With extensive in-screen open times, Green Galaxy™ Booster Inks are launching the Green Galaxy™ line into a class of it's own.
Ready-to-use water based ink for screen printing on fabrics. Can be printed on polyester or dye migrating fabrics with optional use of Green Galaxy™ Warp Drive low cure catalyst. Approximate Pantone® Value: 805C
Can be used with any mesh between 156-305.
We recommend using a water-resistant emulsion like Baselayr Complete. It is recommended to degrease your screens with Baselayr Emulsion Prep. For extended screen life and long print runs it is recommended to post expose the screens and/or use an emulsion hardener like Baselayr Emulsion Hardener.
Load screen with plenty of ink. Flood screen prior to printing. Green Galaxy™ HSA Water Based Ink 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 towel. 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. Green Galaxy™ HSA Water Based Ink can be printed with other water based inks and with plastisol inks.
For flashing, forced air flash is optimal. Flash until dry to the touch.
Printing on an under base:
Green Galaxy™ HSA Water Based Ink colors can be printed on top of Green Galaxy™ Comet White, or discharge under base. Ensure that the under base is properly flashed so that it is dry before printing color on top. Perform wash test to ensure inner layer adhesion.
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 recommended 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.
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 Sgreen™ Aqua Wash is much easier and recommended. For aggressive or dried screens, use Sgreen™ Aqua Wash to dissolve ink and blast out areas of dried ink with water pressure.
Keep container(s) tightly closed. Store in cool, well-ventilated location that is locked.
General Safety Precautions:

Super bright red!
Fabulous. I love how it boosts color and is great stand alone.
Hey Screen Printer! Great feedback, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! Happy printing!
Great Color/Too Watery
While I love the brightness of the color, this ink is way too loose/watery. Admittedly, I am new to screen printing, but in my experience it didn't have enough structure to stay within the bounds of the design and spread to the point of ruining a shirt. It was mixed with the white water based ink from the same brand, but I'd imagine it would have to be almost 80-90% some other ink to hold its shape (and I understand that it is a booster, but it should be able to be printed on its own as well). I couldn't think of anything else to do to make it thicker apart from literally just leaving the jar open to air it out (stirring it periodically). It is taking longer than you might think, but I believe that once it has tightened up a little more it will be a great ink to work with.
Hey Morgan! Thank you for your review! We will reach out to you so we can help explain the behavior of the ink, and see if we can help you feel confident going into water based printing :) Best, Ryonet Team
Love the color!
The color of this paint it was more neon than what I expected, a little to runny but I still liked the results
