EH8033 is a non-phthalate printing black that is designed to provide more fiber matte down to reduce
the amount of fibrillation normally associated with print blacks.
• Helps control fibrillation on cotton garments.
• Intense color to give a Jet Black appearance.
• Provides excellent printability with no viscosity modifications.
• Prints with a matte finish
• Competitively priced.
• Non-Phthalate formulation to comply with new regulations restricting phthalates.
EH8033 can be printed from 86—230 mc in (34-90 mc cm) giving the ability to print solid prints as well
as half tone designs.
Wash test print sample before making production runs to insure you get the desired results when using
this product for its fibrillation control properties. Fibrillation can be virtually eliminated by adding 3% of
the EA0001 NPT FiberBond to EH8033. If mixed with FiberBond, a shelf life of about 8 hrs is expected.
Claira Colors™, bases, modifiers and additives should be mixed in clean vessels using clean
mixer blades and utensils. Any contamination from other ink sources or non approved additives
could make Claira Colors™ test positive for the restricted phthalates.
• Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image.
