Plastisol paint One-Step Nylon (OSN) for printing on nylon


Paint One-Step Nylon (OSN) was created specifically for printing on untreated 100% nylon. Paint can be used as a regular plastisol, it dries on the grid in time, and not wither in the Bank. This ink series is fast intermediate drying and curing at a temperature of 149 °C (300 °F) that allows you to print designs using multiple colors.

• Excellent paint with good covering ability to print on untreated nylon, from fabrics of coarse netting (backpacks, suitcases) to thin fabrics (clothes, bags, umbrellas, etc.).

• Can be used as one-component ink and catalyst OSN Hugger Catalyst to improve adhesion.


Printing guidelines

• Paint OSN does NOT APPLY to print on the satin or nylon fabrics, treated with water-repellent impregnation. In case, if the fabric has a similar coating, it should be removed. In addition, it becomes mandatory to use a catalyst when printing (up to 10% by weight). As a pre-processing, it is necessary to clean the sealing area on the product with alcohol or acetone.

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

• For best results, follow the recommended printing parameters.

• Reaction catalyst activated by the moisture contained in the air. Therefore, the mixture of paint with catalyst depends on the humidity and is 4-8 hours.

• The reaction between a catalyst and a dye occurs within approximately 48-72 hours, so the test on the mechanical damage can be an indicator of quality if it were carried out immediately after printing.

• Before you close the package with the catalyst, you must first “squeeze” from the bottle all the air. Storing catalyst in the open or not well closed container will cause crystallization and solidification of the product.

• Required pre-test print on the material used.


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.

• After printing, the ink with the catalyst must be immediately removed from the stencil using the cleaner to prevent damage to the grid. Also needs to be properly cleaned doctor blade used and contaminated paint printing mechanisms of the machine.

• Harsh cleaners containing in its composition toluene, xylene or acetone etc. react with the paint, which can cause curing of the paint on the stencil.

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

• Before printing the paint should be carefully mixed.

• 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.
