What is Curable Reducer ?

This one definitely goes out to all the noobs and so-called screen printing know it all’s.

When printing plastisol ink you are going to get a thicker deposit of ink on the shirt. That should be expected when printing plastisol, compared to water based inks. Ok now guys pay attention, there is a magical product called “curable reducer.” I know what you are thinking… curable reducer, what the hell is that? Well listen up noob, curable reducer could be your next best friend if you print with plastisol and want a nice soft hand feel on the shirt. It reduces the viscosity of your ink but still cures at around the same temperature of your ink allowing the viscosity of the plastisol to be lowered without running into curing problems.

If you want to further the soft hand feel use curable reducer and combine that with a high mesh count which allows less ink to pass through meaning less of an ink deposit left behind and you have an even softer feel on your shirt.

So for those that say plastisol is so heavy and thick, well they aren’t putting in the effort to achieve a nice soft feel.
