White plastisol ink for printing on cotton and mixed fabrics Single LC White

Description


Plastisol paint Single LC White - bright white paint of high viscosity, designed to obtain unsurpassed hiding power and overlap of the pile and fibers of the fabric during printing, as well as resistance to migration of dyes. When you apply this paint eliminates spurious staining of tissue following products (ghosting) when folding the hot products in the foot. The Epic Single LC White paint allows to unify the range if necessary the press on various materials, to reduce expenses and consumption of the electric power.

Features


• application on all fabrics - from 100% polyester to 100% cotton;

• low final drying temperature, reduced energy consumption and scrap;

• fast intermediate drying and no stickiness after intermediate drying;

• high hiding power and brightness;

• no parasitic staining and resistance to dye migration;

• premium soft prints with excellent elasticity;

• used both as a substrate and as a stand-alone white color.

 

Printing guidelines


• use a printing technique that allows a sufficient layer of ink to be printed to minimize the possible migration of the dye and improve the elasticity of the print.

• Epic Single LC White allows you to set a low drying temperature (127-138°C) when printing as the first white color (substrate) on fabrics that are known as migrating. If the fabric dye does not migrate to the paint, the drying temperature can be raised to 160°C.

• Epic Single LC White is resistant to dye migration. However, for complex fabrics stained with dye sublimation, may require an additional substrate, blocking migration, the recommended product - Epic Armor LC Gray.

• when printing, adjust the temperature and time of the intermediate drying so that the paint is dry to the touch. Avoid excessive intermediate drying temperature to prevent possible migration. Depending on the drying model, 2-3 seconds is usually enough. If the surface of the print after the intermediate drying is hot and sticky, it means that the paint is dry, and it is necessary to reduce the temperature or reduce the time.

• final drying depends on time and temperature. The best result in terms of product protection, migration control and reduction of electricity consumption will be achieved by maintaining the recommended drying temperature in the drying chamber and the slow speed of the conveyor.

 

Special recommendation


• Stir the ink before printing.

• Prints must not be dry cleaned, bleached or ironed with a hot iron.

• Test for drying are required prior to beginning the print run. Insufficient or excessive drying will result in poor imprint resistance to washing and poor paint adhesion.

• The temperature on the print surface during intermediate and final drying must be controlled by a pyrometer or other method.

• 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.

• Excessive intermediate drying should be avoided as this can lead to poor adhesion of the paint layers in multi-colour printing.

• Prior to the launch of the circulation, preliminary tests should be carried out on unknown tissue types due to the possibility of migration or parasitic staining (ghosting). Remember that the characteristics of fabrics and dyes may vary depending on the manufacturer and the lot of fabric.

• With the correct settings, parasitic staining of products does not occur.

• For any application not mentioned in this manual, it is necessary to carry out preliminary tests or obtain expert advice.
