Why is PVC Free important? PVC is the most environmentally damaging plastic. The use and disposal of PVC results in the release of toxic, chlorine-based chemicals. These toxins build up in the water, air, and food chain.
- Cure at 160° C/320° F
- Flash at 105° C/220°F
Flash and Curing Guidelines: Generally it will take 5-10 washes to test the cure fully, but if the ink is seriously under-cured, the print will show deterioration after only 1-3 washings washes. Another way to test your print quickly is doing the “Stretch Test” stretch the print roughly 2/3 of the T-Shirt; if the print cracks and does not retract back it means you under-cured.
General Testing: Before you do any large print, we recommend doing a stretch test 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 best results will be seen on 100% cotton.

✔️Pro Tips: Plastisol inks do not dye fabric like traditional inks. Plastisol inks wrap around the fibers and make a mechanical bond with the fabric. Store plastisol inks at room temperature. Prolonged exposure to temperatures above 90º F (32º C) can cause the ink to start to cure while it's still in the container.
