WARNING: DO NOT re-fill an ink cartridge with 3rd Party inks.  "EVER"You can ruin a Printhead by using inks that may not be compatible.  You can contaminate good ink with bad ink.  Air can be introduced into the "closed system". 

We have seen many printheads have problems in the last year or two, as the result of using 3rd party inks!  It is most certainly not worth the chance just to save a few dollars.

Introduction

Compatible with Brother GT-541 and GT-782.  NaturaLink for Brother® (NaturaLink B) is an aqueous-based, environmentally friendly ink that has the same basic four-color formulation as your original Brother® ink.  This means that you can print on the same type of garments--white or light-colored T-shirts, and other garments made of 100% cotton, or 50-50 polyester-cotton blends—at a lower cost and with an increased wash fastness. Just insert the new NaturaLink ink cartridges (see image below) into your Brother® GT-541 or GT-782 printer, and you are ready to print.  This Quick Guide will instruct you how to charge your GT-541 printer with the new ink and begin printing.  For more detailed information about the operation and maintenance of your Brother GT-541 printer, please refer to the Basic Operation Manual that came with the printer.  

These have been field tested and found to be compatible with printing in the GT-782 on top of Brother White ink.  Perform your own tests, prior to production runs, to evalute the performance.

 

Q: How does the wash fastness of NaturaLink B compare to that of Brother OEM inks?

A: NaturaLink B has up to 54% Better Optical Density after 5 Washes!  Lab tests confirm that after five washes, Sawgrass’ NaturaLink B has substantially less loss in Optical Density (OD) than Brother. This means that your prints fade less and will stay brighter longer. Optical Density (OD) is a measure of the intensity of the color in a printed image - the higher the OD, the more intense the color. A faded color is a color that has lost intensity, and has, therefore, a lower OD. 
For comparison purposes, a lower OD loss, in percentage terms, is shown as an improvement in wash-fastness in the table below.
Wash Fastness Comparison – NaturaLink B vs. Brother OEM Inks
Optical Density (OD) Loss after five washes
Color NaturaLink® B Brother® % Improvement
Cyan 17.15% 18.62% 7.9%
Magenta 11.34% 16.60% 31.7%
Yellow 13.26% 17.22% 23.0%
Black  10.73% 23.40% 54.1%

 Important Precautions

When using NaturaLink, the same precautions apply as when using Brother® ink.  Your Brother® GT-541 Basic Operation Manual lists all of the precautions pertaining to the printer.  This section will concentrate on those directly related to the new ink and the printed output. 

  • Store your NaturaLink cartridges away from direct sunlight until they are required.  When stored properly, the ink will maintain its integrity for a minimum of 12 months.
  • Install the ink cartridges in the color slots that correspond to the color of the ink in the cartridge. Be sure to match the colors of labels on your printer with those on the ink cartridges (see Figure 1 above).
  • Do not pull out ink cartridges during printing.  Doing so, will result in poor print quality and may cause damage to your printer.
  • Garments coming off the printer will have the finished look, but the ink will still be wet and, therefore, will transfer easily to other objects.  Be careful when handling a freshly printed garment until the image has been fixed by heat and pressure.  Make sure not to allow the printed side to touch any surface or to fold onto itself, however slightly.
  • To cure, or fix, the image, press the printed garment on a heat press at the following settings:
    • Temperature: 360° F       
    • Pressure:         40 psi        
    • Dwell time:       35 seconds

If you accidentally spill or transfer NaturaLink onto your heat press or other surfaces, and the ink has not been heated or heat-pressed, you can easily wipe it off with a cloth or paper towel soaked with Windex or an industrial cleaner such as Jessup's CIC Cross Industry Cleaner

Operating Conditions

It is important to only perform printing operations when the room AND the printer are stable with the surrounding environment.  In otherwords, if you turn the heat off in the shop over the weekend in winter, you must let the machine AND the ink warm up to room temperature for several hours before attempting to print.  The reverse applies in the summer.  Allow the machine and ink to stabilize to room temperature.

BEST OPERATION ENVIRONMENT:  Temperature 59-77 degrees F (15-25c) Relative Humidity 35% or higher.

 Installing the New Ink Cartridges

This ink is directly compatible with original GT-541 ink, so you may install it immediately in your GT-541 printer without concern.  

 

  1. Make sure that all printing has stopped and the printer is in the Ready state.
  2. Remove the empty ink cartridges and insert the new cartridges.  Be sure to match the colors of the labels on the ink cartridges with those on the printer.
  3. Perform a nozzle check to ensure that all of the nozzles are firing.  If one or more nozzles are missing, perform a Normal Cleaning.

You are now ready to print..  

NOTE:   If you have any concerns, you may first drain the existing Brother OEM ink from your system.  Simply insert the "Filter Cartridge" (supplied to you when the printer was first installed) and run an "Initial Head Cleaning" on the color you are changing.  Replace filter cartridge with new Sawgrass ink cartridge and do another "Initial Head Cleaning" to load the new ink.

 Maintenance

NaturaLink is not only friendly to the environment, it is also friendly to your printer, and it is designed to provide continuous and trouble-free printing.  If you experience an occasional nozzle dropout (looks like banding or steaking in the print), perform a Normal Cleaning, and follow it up with a nozzle check print to ensure that all nozzles are firing properly.  As recommended when using OEM inks, always replace the Wiper Cleaner Cartridge when replacing the black ink cartridge.  The Wiper Cleaner is included with every black ink cartridge.  The black cartridge box is bigger than the other color-cartridge boxes to accommodate the Wiper Cleaner).  The Wiper Cleaner box, which is inside the black box, contains the Wiper Cleaner Cartridge, cleaning solution, swabs and gloves.  Follow the instructions on the Basic Operation Manual that came with your Brother printer on how to replace the Wiper Cleaner Cartridge.  Also clean the print head cap and the wiper blade when performing this operation.
