Inks for screenprinting on textiles made of cellulose fiber, like cotton, linen and hemp. For wool and silk are they suitable to a limited extend. These inks are dilutable with water. They have an excellent light fastness and a good rubbing fastness. The colours are made of mineral pigments in a mixture with oils and acids. All thirteen colourtones may be mixed with one another and can be applied with roller, with screen or brush. The fixating of the colour is by drying on the air.
