LONG BEACH, Calif. – At this week’s annual Imprinted Sportswear Show (ISS), PolyOne will be launching the latest additions to its Wilflex™ textile printing ink portfolio. These expanded offerings are designed to give screen printers exciting options in design versatility and print application.
The new offerings for 2017 include:

• Wilflex™ Elements – a new tactile selection book featuring the primary EPIC™ ink technologies, colors and finishes
• Wilflex Originals – latest design number 9 featuring a 1961 Eldorado Cadillac, created to mark the Wilflex 55th Anniversary celebrated at the end of 2016
• Oasis™ Imagebrite Reflectives – This brand new water-based reflective ink, containing light reflecting microspheres, will be exclusively previewed at the show.
The Wilflex Inks stand (1517) will offer visitors the opportunity for in-depth collaboration and discussion on all aspects of screen printing, as well as a new video called “The I in Ink,” featuring inspiring footage from the new Wilflex Application Center in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Peter Juhl, global marketing director, Specialty Inks and Polymer Systems at PolyOne, commented, “We welcome all ISS attendees to experience our new Wilflex Elements Collection featuring 20 EPIC™ specialty inks, see our new Wilflex One SFX finishes, and explore how our Originals designs can help them meet their printing challenges by enhancing artistic capabilities and print quality.”
The Wilflex One Special Effects range is slated for further enhancements throughout 2017 with the addition of new inks – liquid silver and gold, clear and regular reflectives, puff, and suede – and an HD additive.
