Which white do you need?
- Transparent White has minimum opacity and is designed for use as a blending white to achieve pastel colors for printing on light fabrics. Lower levels of Titanium dioxide maintain softest handle of the print.
- Standard White is formulated with higher levels of titanium dioxide to achieve better opacity, however a stiffer handle will result.
- Supercover White is Permaset's Premium Opaque White for use on dark colored fabrics.
- First Down White is a Flash White designed for Trade printers who wish to use regular Permaset Aqua colors on darker fabrics.
