UMX Mixing Black is a component ink which forms part of the Total Ink Solutions Series UMX colour matching system, this range of inks are ready for use (RFU) as a single colour on there own.
UMX inks have unique properties that allow for faster wet-on-wet production speeds with the use of less pressure and with extremely low ink build-up under the screen.
This ink has a very creamy consistency and is short-bodied, with very low tack and greatly improved shear. Ideal for high definition, resolution and detail when halftone printing.
