Stencil: A thick stencil is recommended. (Up to 200 microns)
Screen Mesh: Use a mesh count of 86-100
Printing Method: It is recommended to have a thick ink deposit to prevent dye migration. Although sportpro is designed to be bleed resistant, some fabrics and dyes can be troublesome. It is highly recommended to give two or more print strokes to build up the ink deposit. (print/flash/print) Extra curing time will be required to cure the thick ink deposit. Do not try fully curing by giving extra heat as excessive heat can cause dye to bleed or sublimate into the print. 1550 Series SportPro Athletic inks are designed to cure at relatively low temperatures of 290 degrees – 310 degrees. Curing trials and bleed resistance should be conducted before commencing production.
