Plastisol paint Liquid Silver effect liquid silver for printing on textiles




Liquid Silver is an opaque plastisol ink, having the characteristic silver sheen. Can be used for flat printing and for the creation of a high layer. The paint is ready to use, but adding to it a PC (pigment concentrate) to achieve the effect of colored metallics.

The drying parameters

Intermediate drying: 105 °C (220°F).

Transfer: 160 °C (320°F).


Supplements: MX - max. 10%, PC - max. 5% by weight.

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

Excessive dilution may reduce the resistance to migration and cause problems with intermediate drying and curing.

• Shiny silver.

• The best results are achieved when printing on dark fabrics.

• Paint is ready to use.

• When washing in cold water, saves the brightness of colors and has good stability.

• Flexible, has excellent stretching ability.

• Can be used in combination with other products from First Base to create original special effects.


Printing guidelines

• Liquid silver can be napechatana on the previously dried paint.

• RS (concentrates of pigments) may be added in Liquid silver for the production of non-ferrous metallics. Adding standard hues, you can achieve a more matte appearance of the print.

• The amount of additive in the paint for the PC should not exceed 5%, and MX 10% by weight.

• When added to the finished paint concentrate of pigment increases the color saturation.

• Printing technique: print-intermediate drying-printing.


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.

• Avoid reducing the saturation of colors, the wash cloth should be held in cold water.

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