Disclaimer: We do not recommend printing fluorescent colors on dark garments. If you are printing on a dark garment an under-base is a must.
- Cure at 160°C /320°F
- Flash at 105°C/220°F - 7 - 12 seconds
- On the press - Ecotex Plastisol Press Wash/Ink Degradant
- In the sink - Ecotex Plastisol Screen Wash/Ink Degradent
Flash and Curing Guidelines: Generally it will take 5-10 washes to fully test the cure, 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 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 the traditional inks. Plastisol inks wraps around the fibers and makes 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.
We highly recommend printing with an under base white when printing on a dark garment
