IM TexTac

TexTac Platen Adhesive is a water-based, pressure-sensitive adhesive designed for adhering textiles to pallets, platens, belts or step-and-repeat table tops in the screen printing process.  TexTac provides consistent registration without transferring to the garment.  A single application may hold hundreds of garments before it is necessary to reapply.

One gallon of TexTac lasts as long as 4 cases of aerosol spray adhesive!

table adhesive is an extremely popular replacement for aerosol cans.

PERFORMANCE PROPERTIES:

  • Retains tack for 200 shirts or more
  • Eliminates overspray onto floor, equipment and air
  • Water-based, therefore more environmentally friendly
  • Non-flammable
  • Ideal tack strength to hold substrate in registration
  • Will not transfer onto textile garment
  • One gallon replaces 4 to 5 cases of aerosol containers
  • Freese/Thaw Stable
  • Appearance: White liquid, dries clear
  • Solids: 58.5 - 62% by wt.
  • Viscosity: 1,100 cps ( 3/50/77)
  • Shelf Life: 1 year min. at room temp.
  • pH: 4 - 5
  • Wt. per gallon: 8.62 lbs.
  • VOC content: < 0.50%


APPLICATIONS:

  • Screen printing: holds garment down during printing
  • Embroidery: keeps backer in place while stitching



 

INSTRUCTIONS:
Apply: TexTac can be applied to pallet manually with a card, paintbrush, or spray bottle. We recommend air assisted spray units for fine, even coatings. We suggest applying pallet tape to a clean surface - this avoids scrubbing TexTac from the pallet. Only a thin layer is needed for shirt printing; however, a thicker layer may be needed for fleece, sweatshirts, towels, or other high lint materials.
Dry: TexTac can be air-dried; however, 20 seconds under a flash unit will accelerate drying. A heavier coat of adhesive increases tack strength and dry times. TexTac will turn clear when dry.
