Mesh Guidelines: 155-305
Flash and Curing Guidelines:
- Curing should be a minimum of 90 seconds at 320°F. For the best results 2-3 minutes at 320°F.
- Flash at 105°C/220°F - 7 - 12 seconds
- On the press/in the sink - Ecotex® Water Based Screen Printing Press Wash
For Optimal Use:
- Mist the screen with water during high-volume runs to prevent the ink from drying out
Emulsion Recommendations: We recommend using a water-resistant emulsion such as Water Resistant Blue Emulsion or Dual Cure Pink Emulsion, both require mixing diazo. Remember to degrease your screen before coating the emulsion, Hyper Haze will degrease and remove stains/ghosts.
General Testing: Before you do any large print, we recommend doing a stretch and a wash test to ensure you are cured and printed correctly before going into production. Increase cure time if testing fails. We recommend only using natural fibers; the best results will be seen on 100% cotton. Synthetic fibers will not discharge properly.
Warning: This product can expose you to chemicals including n-hexane, which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to www.p65warnings.ca.gov

This is a great black. You can definitely see the difference. Would recommend!!
I ordered this based on other reviews and was not disappointed! This goes on super smooth, I made two passes as my image is a large detailed design and it came out perfect every time. This will now be my go to for ink! Even the customer service is amazing, I had an issue with a different product and they were super quick to respond and to assist. You can't ask for more than that. Definitely will be my one stop shop.
