WOWEEE Much Better Than RYonet White
by Steve M.
Been using Ryonet White for a few years as it is highly recommended by all Ryonet sales reps. Buy this instead.
by Liberty Tom
In 25 years of screen printing and having tried literally every white I could get my hands on, I can finally say the best ink I have used to date. Don't let it fool you out of the can. This ink feels heavy coming out but once you move it , you would think you are printing cotton white. Really easy to get thru your mesh and excellent fiber mat down. Even better Printed on my ROQ. Another Thank You to the Ryonet team for making my job easier.
Amazing is the best way I can describe the ink.
by Jeremy Jones - SingleInk.com
We have been searching for almost a year for a fast printing white plastisol ink. We had tried almost every brand out there we could get our hands on and none would clear the mesh in less than two passes. I had read reviews of the new Epic Lava white and decided to give it a try. Amazing is the best way I can describe the ink. It clears our 150 count screens in one pass at full speeds on the ROQ. Almost doubling our printing speeds by enabling a single stroke underbase. Due to the thick creamy body of the ink, we are able to get full opaqueness on most colors of shirts with two passes, without the need to flash in between strokes. This also saves a tremendous amount of time. Hands down the best white plastisol we have ever used.
Rough hand feel
I found this ink to not have a soft feel. It was rather rough. I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong but I chose not to buy into the rest of the inks they offer.
This ink is A-MAZ-ING! Best white ink on the market. Bright on dark colors and goes on easy with little effort. I will buy nothing else! Thank you to Ryonet for another great product!!

I was new to the business for about a year and had been using Ryopaque plastisol ink. I saw the new Wilflex inks on screenprinting.com, but I didn't want to switch because I wanted to stay with what was working. I sent an e-mail off and received a response from Mr. Ryan Moor himself. He pointed me in the direction of the customer reviews so I ordered a gallon of white. LOVE IT! Now when I run out of a color, I order it in Wilflex! Smooth.... goes through the screen better, and has a much better feel and appearance on the garment. Go to screenprinting.com and try a quart of white... you owe it to yourself! Thank you Ryonet and Ryan Moor..... KB Designs & Apparel is supplied and powered by Ryonet and screenprinting.com from day one, and ALWAYS will be.
This ink is awsome! I was using the Green Galaxy Meteor White and I liked it but thought it was rough and bumpy. I purchased this ink because I seen the good reviews and as soon as I tried it I loved it! It is easy to print, it looks great, and feels even better! It was a solid print that cleared the screen way easier and it felt as good as the waterbased comet white. No longer will I use any other ink for printing white!
Love this ink. Easy to work with and awesome coverage. I was really disappointed in the new Wilflex version of Ryonet's Meteor white, but this made up for it.
Very stable on the screen, easy to work, the best white ink that I have used so far
I like it!
by Pirate Printing
Smooth and creamy. Covers nicely. Almost a 5!
This ink is from another planet, Aliens gave up the super secret formula for this line of ink
By far the most fantasmagorical ink i've ever pushed around. It's changed my marriage. I come home a happy camper now vs coming home all angry from ink issues on the job. Happy wife, happy life, has never been more true. Get you some of this ink, It's life changing... LIFE CHANGING I SAY.
Meteor White vs Lava Low Bleed
by Eric - Thelemic Printshop
After using the original Meteor white, I wasn't too happy to receive a 5 gallon pail of the Wilflex version, only to see how thick it was. It would constantly creep up the backs of the flood bars and squeegee's, and manually printing with it was a nightmare due to how thick it is, even after stirring / warming up. We chocked it up as this is going to be the new norm until we find a different brand to switch to. After reading reviews on the Lava Low Bleed, and everyone saying how creamy and easy it is to print with, I decided to order 5 gallons. The Lava Low Bleed white is a night and day difference compared to the Meteor white. I was really expecting the Lava Low Bleed to be thicker than the Meteor White, as in past experience Low Bleed inks / Poly Inks tend to be thicker than Cotton White's, and I was pleasantly surprised at the opposite.
<br>Long story short, spend the extra $50 or so dollars (5 Gallon size) and get the Lava Low Bleed over the Meteor White.
Best white ink ever !
Seriously the best white ink I've ever used. I'm a relatively new screen printer , on and off for 5 years. This ink has been so much easier to work with than other white inks, it's cut down on production time and frustration levels !
I LOVE IT!!!!
I was previously using the RyoWhite brand. My workers complained of its thickness until it loosened up during printing. The Wilflex is great to work with, very creamy/smooth but still gives the opaqueness needed, especially on black garments.
AN ABSOLUTE MUST FOR SCREEN PRINTERS!!!!!
by Up All Night Ink
The best ink I have used to date. Ready to print straight from the container! Very opaque, also helps with fibrillation. Highly recommended for anyone looking to get the highest quality out of their inks.
FINALLY GOT IT RIGHT!!
Great Ink!! Finally a white ink that is made for screen printers!! RYONET, please listen........DON'T CHANGE!!!lol!!
Not as easy to print or smooth as the Lava Low Bleed White
Decent body, cleared mesh with a slightly harder stroke than some other whites. We found the hand to be a bit rougher than we'd like - even with multiple prints and flashes. The Lava Low Bleed that this replaced seemed to have a much softer hand and easier printability. Disappointed, as we really like the sample of the Lava Low Bleed we tried a couple months ago.
Not perfect at all. Essentially has become an expensive 2 part ink requiring me to by reducer.
by Kevin M.
This ink is def not perfect. It climbs bad and is super thick. Essentially its become a 5 gallon investment of a 2 part ink... I've had to mix in reducer to every job i've printed and its costing me loads extra money. Its been drill mixed, stored at 70 degrees, heated up, and then finally caved in and just mixed in reducer to get it flowing at a reasonable rate. Maybe my expectations where high with the claim of "perfect" but this fell way short of it compared to our use for years of the Meteor White which was a great ink. Very bummed and cant wait for this 5 gallon bucket to disappear....
This paint SUCKS!!
This paint has been nothing but a nightmare. After printing and properly curing the ink, the image fades dramatically when the clothing is washed. I do not recommend this paint for ANY screen printing.
