Printing guidelines

• Add 10% by weight in the standard plastitalia paint.

• Make sure the additive is well mixed with the paint before printing.

• Paint, which added the "anti-foil" can also be used for printing conventional designs (without using foil).

• Paint with the addition of "anti-foil" should be method "wet on wet" to eliminate the possibility of overheating.

• If possible, paint with this additive should be printed last to minimize contact with other stencils.

• Not recommended for adding a series of colors with low drying temperature.

• For best result it is recommended to apply foil within 24 hours after printing. A later application can cause unwanted sticking of the foil to the elements of the design where it is not required.


Special recommendation

• Test the adhesion and resistance of the foil to washing mandatory especially when using special effects that create a high layer, or containing sequins.

• Avoid excessive heating of the paint during the process of intermediate drying and curing of the paint layer. Overheating can degrade the effectiveness of the supplements! If possible, set up Your drying equipment so that the temperature was the minimum possible to achieve the desired result with intermediate drying and further curing.
