Pretreament is a liquid solution used by Direct-to-Garment printers to allow the printing and washability of white ink, or full color images on a variety of colored shirts. The pretreatment acts just like a primer. It allows the white ink printed through the DTG printer to adhere to and sit on top of the shirt. A proper application of pretreatment will help yield better results for any white ink direct to garment printer.
Fast Gelling: Image Armor ULTRA has a faster gel time for white ink than most other pretreatments. This allows for faster printing & “One-Pass” printing.
Uses Less Ink: Typically you can reduce the amount of ink applied resulting in brighter images and cost savings.
Less Crystallization: Greatly reduced crystallization on the shirt results in better looking garments and smoother prints.
Image Armor ULTRA is designed for mid-dark colors to black garments and continues the legacy of the original Image Armor DARK formula.
