Matsui Brite Discharge Base
Matsui Brite Discharge BaseBrite Discharge Base - Discharge System for reactive dyes. This is an excellent, highly pigmented brighter discharge system.
Matsui Brite Discharge Base is neutral which means it contains no color or pigment in it. For this base to work you need to mix the discharge activator / agent (powder) at 4-6% which will then discharge out the fabric dye color of the shirt / fabric leaving it white. The fabric / shirt will have a no feel to it.
*Discharge ink/bases can be used with most 100% cotton shirts which have the best results. 50/50 cotton/poly, and 100% polyester and all other ratios may work as well in most cases. (Pre testing is recommended prior to production run)
