USES: Prevents foil form adhering to plastisol anywhere it is printed.

HOW TO USE: Print color(s) first, flash cure where necessary. L846 printable adhesive is printed next and flashed. This will increase foil adhesion where desired. Foil proof should be printed last. Print Foil Proof through a finer mesh than was used to print colors. The goal is to achieve a thinner ink film than the area to be foiled.

The addition of L820 Puff Base to L846 Printable Adhesive creates a low loft, which results in a higher surface area for the foil to adhere to. As a starting point, Lancer recommends adding 25% of L820 Puff base, by weight, to the L846 adhesive. If using this method, alter the print routine with L820/846 combination as the last color.

Adding a small amount (3% by weight or less), of Foil Proof to the ink will also aid in resisting foil. Be aware that adding more than 3% will affect viscosity and opacity.

FOIL TRANSFER METHOD: Set heat press to 375°. Apply with very light pressure for 4 to 6 seconds. Peel foil slowly while still warm.

OPACITY: Transparent

DRYING TIME: Gelling instead of fully curing the print initially, will result in a much better foil resist effect. Heat pressing the foil at 375°F will contribute to proper cure.

SCREEN FABRIC: Use 80-110 monofilament polyester on image areas requiring foil. Use 160-200 monofilament polyester on image areas which don’t require foil.

SCREEN COATING, FILM, BLOCKOUT: Use water soluble hand-cut, photo screens and blockouts with this ink or use other suitable products.

WASHUP: Spray Wipes and Ink Degradents

FOIL TRANSFERS:

841 Printable Adhesive can be printed on the back of the foil to create a foil transfer. It can be gelled on the back of the foil and transferred later. Screen print 841 Printable Adhesive onto a cold peel transfer paper such as T-75. Gel onto the paper the same as any other heat transfer. Then apply the transfer to the fabric at 350°F (177°C) for 10 seconds – peel cold. Apply the foil over the transfer and heat seal for 10 to 15 seconds. Allow to cool completely and peel foil.  Direct print with light pressure on surface of fabric. Keep ink on surface, do not drive it too far into the fabric. Cure print through a dryer. Using transfer machine apply foil for 10 to 15 seconds at 350°F (177°C). Let cool completely and peel foil.

PUFF TRANSFERS: Puff Transfers: Print 841 Adhesive over the whole puff transfer image slightly overlapping the puff ink.

Curing: Gel the 841 Adhesive at the same condition as the puff ink so as not to puff the ink on the paper. Puff Transfers always perform better when they are not puffed or beginning to puff on paper.

MESH: 80/inch to 125/inch (36T cm to 57T cm).

SCREEN COATING, FILM, BLOCKOUT: Use water soluble hand-cut, photo screens and blockouts with this ink or use other suitable products.

WASHUP: Spray wipes and ink degradents.
