Monarch LB Yeti White Recommendations:
Stir plastisol ink before printing. Any modifiers and additives should be mixed in clean containers using clean mixer blades and ink knives. Any contamination from other ink sources could make the ink test positive for restricted phthalates. Do not dry clean, iron, or bleach the printed image.
Perform fusion tests before production. Failure to cure ink properly can result in poor wash fastness, inferior adhesion, and unacceptable durability.
Adjust flash cure temperature and dwell time so the ink is just dry to the touch. Avoid excessive flash temperatures to protect the fabric and the migration of dyes. If the surface is hot and tacky, the ink film has been over-flashed. Reduce temperature or time to prevent an inter-coat adhesion problem.
Curing is a time and temperature process, a lower oven temperature setting with a slower belt speed while maintaining recommended ink cure temperature is always best to protect fabric, control dye migration, and reduce energy consumption.
Yeti LB White can be cured between 290°F – 300°F. Running at the higher end of the temperature range and/or longer dwell times may be required to achieve proper cure on jobs that contain cotton, high ink deposits, or heavy-weight garments.
*Note: Poorly dyed polyester or too much heat in the curing process can overcome any low-bleed inks ability to block the migration. For severe migration use a barrier base underlay.
