Wherever possible we are always looking for ways to reduce our Ecological footprint in the process of producing our products. One of the key ways we are able to do this is by printing all of our products
in-house by our own professional screen printing team and ensuring we only print with Water Based Inks.

Water based inks that are Eco Friendly
Permaset water based inks do not contain toxic chemicals, which is safer for the our environment and safer for the user.
Most commercial screen printers print garments using plastisol inks, which are easier to use. However, plastisol inks typically contain PVC resin and phthalates plasticisers that are harmful to the environment and have been linked to many medical disorders. Plastisol inks also require the use of harmful solvents in the cleaning process. Water based inks do not contain PVC or phthalates and you don’t need solvents to clean the screens down after they’ve been used – you can clean them with water.
Permaset Aqua inks do not contain ozone-depleting chemicals such as CFC’s and HCFC’s, aromatic hydrocarbons or any volatile solvents. They don’t contain lead or any heavy metals. In fact, Permaset Aqua inks do not contain any toxic chemicals at all. Not even white spirits like other water based inks on the market. Permaset ink has passed the Oekotex Class 1 standard (for formaldehyde content) and is safe to use on underwear, swimwear and even baby clothes!
