Opaque plastisol ink for screen printing on textiles Epic Standard

Description


Shades of plastisol inks Epic Standard is specifically designed to print "wet on wet" with high performance. Despite the fact that the inks of this series are covering, maximum covering power can be achieved by using shades of the "Super". Inks Epic Standard minimum guarantee is attached to the print side of the stencil. Data plastisol inks are also used to print transfer cold compartment (cold-peel).

Features


• inks Epic Standard are used for direct printing and print transfer cold compartment (cold-peel);

• when high-speed printing, data plastisol inks ensure minimal buildup on the print side of the stencil;

• excellent drying parameters;

• paints have a thick, creamy consistency;

• mid-glossy (satin) print after drying.

 

Printing guidelines


• for best results, follow the recommended print settings;

• avoid excessive pressure on the squeegee when printing;

• given the difference in power, the distance from the dryer to the paint layer and the intermediate drying efficiency, the exact drying times cannot be given;

• to increase the speed of production, use mesh higher resolution, which will reduce the drying time. Before you print, run the desktops of the machine. Adjust the machine settings and drying so that after intermediate drying of the top layer of paint was dry to the touch;

• use well-strained shape to optimize the printing process.

 

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.

• It is necessary to conduct preliminary tests on weakly stained or discolored materials. Avoid hot styling products in the foot, because the fabric of these colors can lead to spurious staining. Remember, the characteristics of the fabrics and colors may vary depending on manufacturer and batch of fabric.

• Avoid excessive intermediate drying, as this may result in poor adhesion of paint layers when multi-color printing.

• When printing on fabrics made of polyester should be preliminary tests because of the possible migration of dyes.

• Before printing the paint should be stirred.

• Sealed image can not 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.
