The latest addition to the Image Armor pretreatment is the new ULTRA formula. Image armor ULTRA allows for the faster setting or gelling of white DTG ink sets that are different than the standard DuPont inks. The new ULTRA opens new doors for direct to garment printers who have Brother or Epson printers and ink sets.
