Printers Choice ECO White - 100% Cotton & 50/50 Blends

Printers Choice ECO White

Printers Choice ECO White is a non-phthalate opaque white ink designed for applications on 100% cotton and cotton/polyester blends where moderate bleed resistance is required. ECO White maximizes versatility delivering commendable press performance on both automatic and manual equipment and can be used as a first-down underbase flash white or an overprint stand-alone white.

Product options:

Application:

  •   Recommended to be printed on light, medium, and dark color textiles of cotton or cotton/polyester blends
  •   Wet-on-wet printing
  •   Cold peel transfers

 Advantages:

  •   Lead-free
  •   Maximum coverage on dark fabrics
  •   Minimum build-up
  •   Easy printability on manual or automatic equipment
  •   Creamy consistency and clean release from screen
  •   Consistent quality order after order

 Screen Mesh:

  •   HO series plastisol inks may be printed through meshes ranging up to 305 monofilament dependant upon the desired effect.  Though monofilament is recommended, multifilament may also be used.

 Fusion:

  • HO series plastisol inks are recommended to be fused at 325 degrees fahrenheit for two minutes.  Remember that plastisol fusion is a time/temperature process.  HO series inks may be flashed from 240-260 degrees fahrenheit, followed by complete fusion in a conventional oven for direct printing; or gelling at 240-260 degrees fahrenheit on release paper for cold peel transfers.

Extending With Neutral or Clear Base:

  • HO series plastisols are formulated for maximum opacity when printing onto black or dark colored fabrics.  HO series plastisols can be extended with HO044 Neutral extender or SE014 Process Clear when printing on white or light colored textiles.

HO044 Neutral Extender VS SE014 Process Clear

  • Extending HO series inks with HO044 does not affect printing properties, and colors extended with HO044 Neutral Extender are more suitable for printing wet-on-wet on top of a flashed underbase than are those extended with SE014 Process Clear.  However, colors extended with SE014 Process Clear have easier printability and a softer hand than the standard HO series inks or colors extended with HO040 Neutral Extender.

Reducers:

  • HO series plastisols are formulated ready to use.  Reducer #1, Special Reducer, or Curable Reducer may be used if desired.  All reducers will change the opacity and cure.  Always pretest when adding any products to the prepackaged ink.

 Clean Up:

  •   Spray Wipes, Ink Degradents, etc.

Colors:

  •   Refer to the current Inktek color card.  Special colors may be available upon request.

Packaging:

  •   1 Gallon pail, 5 gallon pails, 30 gallon drum, 50 gallon drums

 

   Note:  -Always pretest ink and fabric under normal plant conditions before starting a production run.

Application & Storage Information:

Recommended Fabrics: Light colored 100% cotton or cotton/polyester blends. Use an underbase for printing dark fabrics.
Ink Application: Colors should be printed without any modifications. If thinning is required, use Curable Reducer (1% to 5% by volume).
Screen Mesh & Emulsion: 110 to 305
Emulsion:  Any direct or indirect lacquer resistant emulsion. Use 35 to 70 micron capillary film for best results.
Squeegee: 60-70 Durometer: Sharp Edge 60-90-60 or 70-90-70 Triple Durometer: Sharp Edge
Cure Temperature: 325 Degrees for a minute to a minute and half.  Entire ink film. Test dryer temperatures and wash test printed product before and during a production run.
Clean-up: Screen Wash 147 or any environmentally friendly plastisol screen wash.
Storage of ink containers: Recommend storage at 65F to 90F (18C to 32C). Avoid storage in direct sunlight. Keep containers well sealed.
