Rapid Cure Screen Printing Puff Additive by Screen Print Direct® is a low-temperature cure plastisol ink additive formulated to give your ink an elevated puff texture. Rapid Cure Puff Additive is ready to use from the container, mix the additive into the ink of your choice.
The puffing effect occurs once the ink is fully cured on your garment.
We highly recommend using Rapid Cure Puff Ink with low-temperature ink. Results with a standard plastisol ink are subpar.
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 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
