Colenso Screen Services is the sole supplier of PolyOne Wilflex™ Screen Printing Inks, in the UK. Wilflex focuses on total ink-room management, providing the most efficient, cost-effective environment possible to help you win in competitive marketplaces. These inks are more than just textile inks.
The Wilflex brand of inks emerged in the early 1960’s as screen printing on t-shirts gained popularity for self-expression allowing the Wilflex brand to gain global recognition. Wilflex continued to make history twenty years later, when it provided design freedom allowing hundreds of color options with the introduction of the first plastisol mixing system. Another first for the textile printing industry was the introduction of automated ink dispensing equipment in the early 1990’s. The Wilflex DispenseMaster™ continues to excel in the global market by providing efficiency driven and automated solutions in today’s leading print shops. Ink room solutions now also includes IMS3.0, a cloud based software providing formula and inventory management for the entire family of PANTONE® approved Wilflex color mixing systems.
