Color Mixing System 388

Pigment concentrate + binder = Screen printing ink

That is Printcolor's module principle. This principle allows you to produce Series 384, 386, 387 and 388 at your location. Simply mix an MS basic color of Series 388 with a series-specific binder and manufacture the color series with the characteristics needed - and always stay flexible.

MS modular system - explained using the example of Series 386 

Pigment concentrates

The pigment concentrates are the basis of our mixing system. Concentrates are available in four different categories: 

Category Description Number of colors
HP Highly pigmented 12 plus black/white 
HR Highly thermostable 10 plus black/white 
HT Highly transparent 13 plus black/white 
OR Outdoor-resistant 12 plus black/white 

In total, 24 different MS basic colors are available.
