Matsui Softner MG (Formely Softner XA-1)

Softener MG is an additive that will help soften the hand of a print.

How can I achieve a soft hand feel on the final print?

A smooth print with just enough thickness to be opaque should yield a soft hand feel. If a softer feel is desired, either the printing method or the ink formula can be modified. You can decrease your off-contact and speed up your squeegee movement to reduce the amount of ink being deposited. Also, the ink formula can be modified by adding up to 3% Softener MG.

How do I improve the printability of the ink?

To improve the flow of ink through the screen mesh, add the additive Softener MG. Softener MG also helps keep the ink from drying in the screen.
