Plastisol base Cork Base with the effect of balsa wood for printing on textiles




The base effect of the cork tree Cork Base has been designed to create a progressive volumetric tube structure. In the print result can be obtained as a volumetric layer, and smooth. Imprint surface incredibly smooth to the touch, has excellent resistance and elasticity.


Print options

Types of fabrics

100% cotton, mixed fabrics, spandex, denim.

Mesh selection

24-90 threads/cm, depending on the type of printing.

Recommended tension: 25-35 N/cm.

The choice of the doctor blade

Hardness: 65-75 Sh single-layer, three-layer 75/90/75 Sh.

Edge: sharp.

Speed: average.


Emulsion: 2+2.

Capillary film: up to 400 microns.

Printed gap: 2 mm.

The drying parameters

Intermediate drying: 70 °C (160°F).

Transfer: 160-171 °C (320-340 °F).


Additives: MX PC - max. 10% by weight.

Thinner: Viscosity Buster/Curable Reducer - max. 3% by weight.

Excessive thinning reduces the resistance to migration of the dye of the fabric, causing problems with intermediate drying and curing.


Store at temperature 18-32º C.

Avoid contact with direct sunlight.

To use during the year of receipt.



• Raised smooth textured effect tube to create original contemporary designs.

• Dense and flexible paint with excellent adhesion.

• Easily printed on dark and light fabrics.

• May be printed on a substrate, and without it.


Printing guidelines

• Add PCs, MX for creating the desired color. The addition of pigment or finish color shall not exceed 10% by weight.

• Application method: printing/intermediate drying/print.

• Change the drying temperature will affect the texture of the print.

• Paint can be printed onto the substrate. The best result is obtained by printing ink directly on the fabric.


Special recommendation

• Test for drying are required prior to beginning the print run. Insufficient or excessive drying will result in poor stability of the print to wash, and poor adhesion of paint. The temperature on the surface of the impression with intermediate and final drying must be monitored with a pyrometer or other means.

• Responsibility for the correct selection of paint to a printing material lying on the technologist or the printer responsible for making paint and printing options.

• Test before launch into production. Improper drying of the paint may cause poor resistance to washing, insufficient adhesion, unacceptable durability and increased likelihood of dye migration.

• Stir the product before printing.

• The printed image cannot be subjected to dry cleaning, bleaching, and Ironing with a hot iron.

• For any application not referred in this manual, necessary to carry out preliminary tests or to consult a specialist.
