GJS DTG Polyester Pre-Treatment

To date, the printing on 100% polyester garments has not been possible with direct-to-garment (DTG) inks. This is because DTG inks are waterbased inks designed to bind to natural fabrics that have fibers that are loosely wound. Synthetic garments, like polyester garments, are made with tightly wounded fibers that are not as absorbent as natural fibers. Thus, the waterbased DTG inks typically will bleed and wash out on polyester garments. This makes the prints look faded after the first wash. A similar effect also happens on 50/50 blend garments as well.

This is where DTG Pretreat fluid comes in. This fluid is specifically designed to work with CMYK inks to provide a receptive coating on light-coloured polyester and 50/50 blend garments or substrates. This means a DTG printer can use their printers to print on the following type of garments / products:

  • 100% Polyester Garments
  • Blend Garments (especially hoodies and other types of sweatshirts)
  • Mouse Pads
  • Can Coolers
  • Polyester Flags
  • Tote Bags
  • and many more items.

DTG Pretreat can also be used on 100% cotton garments to provide for better colours (e.g. providing richer blacks and brighter reds) and better washability.
