Rapid Cure by Screen Print Direct is a premium plastisol ink that cures as low as 270°. Rapid Cure Black Plastisol Ink is the best plastisol ink for screen printing when working with a variety of materials. This low bleed plastisol ink works great with a wide variety of blends including polyester. Say goodbye to garment shrinking and scorching with low-temperature cure fabric ink. The ink's lower cure temp saves production time and helps ensure the garment is cured properly without expensive conveyor dryers. The inks texture is creamy and short-bodied. The color is vibrant, bold, and opaque. For darker garments, we recommend printing with an under-base.
For more information on low-temperature cure inks take a look at the blogs we have below.
- Cure at 132° C/270° F
- Flash at 82-104° C/180-200°F
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 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.
We highly recommend printing with an under base white when printing on a dark garment
