Heat-sensitive stencil paint Geo Aquatherm Duo for printing on textiles

 

 

Description


Geo Aquatherm Duo - thermochromic aqueous screen printing inks have the property to change color when exposed to heat. When heated to 29°C printed colors appear, with the result that the product turns bright, multi-color imprint.

Features


• heat-sensitive paint to create original modern designs;

• used for printing on fabrics of 100% cotton;

• odorless;

• elastic paint with excellent adhesion;

• easy passage through recommended meshes.

 

Printing guidelines


• for best results, follow the recommended printing parameters and the number of grids;

• avoid excessive pressure on the squeegee when printing;

• printing: in two passes, with subsequent drying before printing the next color;

• exact drying times cannot be given due to objective differences in power, distance to the heating element intermediate drying, and the thickness of the applied layer of paint;

• when recommended meshes with an intermediate or minimum diameter of the filament;

• to optimize the printing process use a well-strained shape;

• before printing, necessary in dye to add 3-5% thinner Reducer 77, which prevents the thickening of the ink on the printed form, for subsequent dilution to use only the diluent Jet Reducer (1-3%);

• Hydracryl Retarder retarder helps to improve the stability of the paint on the stencil. Additive of 3-5% in the paint;

• for cleaning screen printing frames use water.

 

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;

• before printing the paint should be stirred;

• decrease the viscosity of the paint (when diluted) affects opacity;

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