Plastisol base Sculpture Base for printing three-dimensional effects and high layer




Sculpture base Sculpture Base – the base is a special circuit, designed for screen printing on textile three-dimensional effects and high layer. Depending on the mesh selection and printing options, we get the impression may be smooth or have a textured surface. Sculpted base allows you to reproduce when you print the details of the design, even when applied in thick layers. Sculpture base Sculpture Base phthalate free, eco-friendly and completely harmless when printing on fabrics intended for the production of finished products.

• Base to print smooth and high color layer.

• Dense and flexible paint with good adhesion to the fabric.

• It is used for printing on light and dark textiles.

• Excellent washing fastness.

• Printing is possible both through normal and through the high stencil.


Printing guidelines

• To obtain the desired color you must add the concentrates of pigments or paint PC MX series.

• To achieve the desired surface effects necessary to adjust the drying parameters.

• To change the structure of the surface is possible to mix with other special effects.

• For obtaining the print layer of paint with a high instep, it is recommended to be printed through a stencil with a thick emulsion layer or a thick capillary film.

• To build on the print ink layer of the required thickness to use multiple printing with intermediate drying.


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.

• Supplement too many Kohler pigment or ink can lead to a change in printing properties.

• Change the drying temperature during printing will affect the surface texture and the tactile sensation of print.

• Stir the product before printing.

• The printed image cannot 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.
