Rutland Logo


NSDS are distributors of both Rutland and Union Plastisol inks in South Africa. Plastisol inks are widely used in garment printing, as they are easy to print, do not dry in the screen, can be very opaque on dark garments, and will adhere to most textiles. Plastisol inks have one outstanding characteristic, they must be heated to dry. They will not dry, or cure, at normal temperatures. Plastisol inks can be printed on virtually any surface that can withstand the heat required to cure the ink and is porous enough to permit good ink penetration. Plastisol inks do not colour the fibres like a dye. Instead the ink wraps around the fibres and makes a mechanical bond with the fabric. For this reason, they will not adhere to non-porous substrates such as plastic, metal, and glass. They also will not adhere well to woven, waterproofed nylon material without adding a bonding agent. Another outstanding feature of Rutland Plastisol ink system is the M2007 software, which allows the user to access a formulation to make up any Pantone colour. This means matching to exact client specifications is easy and not time consuming. For more information contact us.
