So everyone was saying plastisols were on the way out and water based is going to take over everything but then...
Low temperature plastisol ink hit the market and it is gaining popularity all over the place. If you go to your local distributor you will most likely find it some where on the shelf. Some people don’t see the point of a low temperature ink however there are many benefits to this new and very popular ink.
1. You are no longer limited to cotton textile printing.
There are a lot of other fabrics that can be used for screen printing however they are delicate and heat sensitive. High temperatures can hurt or even burn your tri-blends or jerseys. Printers also have issues with standard white cotton t shirts because they tend to burn easily. Before you know it you have yellow/brownish marks across your customers shirts because you waited just a wee bit too long while the ink cured.
Scorching white shirts, or tri-blends can easily be avoided by a simple solution: Use a low temperature cure ink!
2. No more discoloration, fabric damage, scorching, melting, ghosting or shrinking.
By lowering the temperature on your dryer, you are preventing heat-related issues such as ghosting, shrinking, scorching, melting, and fabric damage/ discoloration. You are also avoiding damage to the print itself as dye migration becomes a much less riskier issue at lower temps.
3. Save money by simplifying your supply.
Reduce the number of inks on the shelf. You can use low temp cure ink on all materials, no need for an extra ink just for poly blends.
