Printing Instructions for Monarch Stark White Plastisol Ink on Cotton and 50/50 Blends:
- Screen Preparation:
- Use an emulsion specifically made for use with plastisol inks when coating your screens.
- Opt for a lower mesh count, ranging from 86 to 230 mc, to achieve a thicker ink deposit and enhance color vibrancy and coverage.
- Ensure the screens are clean and free from any contaminants before applying the emulsion.
- Ink Mixing:
- Monarch Stark White Plastisol Ink comes ready to use. Stir the ink thoroughly before printing to achieve consistent color and texture.
- There is no need for adding viscosity modifiers; the ink has a user-friendly consistency suitable for screen printing.
- Printing Technique:
- Apply the Monarch Stark White Ink to the screen and position it correctly over the cotton or 50/50 blend garment.
- Flood the screen and ensure the ink fully covers the design area.
- Print Stroke:
- Use a smooth and even print stroke to ensure even ink distribution on the fabric.
- For optimal results, use a single print stroke for one-stroke coverage whenever possible.
- Curing Temperature:
- Polyester is sensitive to heat, and dyes in the fabric may migrate at high temperatures. However, for cotton and 50/50 blends, you can cure the Monarch Stark White Ink at a higher temperature of 320°F (160°C).
- Ensure your conveyor dryer is set to the appropriate temperature to achieve proper ink fusion.
- Curing Time:
- Maintain the garment inside the conveyor dryer for a sufficient dwell time of approximately 1.5 minutes. This duration allows the ink to fully cure and adhere to the fabric.
- Always perform a stretch test after curing to ensure the ink is fully cured all the way through and won’t crack or peel.
- Cooling and Quality Control:
- Allow the printed garments to cool down after curing before handling or stacking to prevent unwanted dye transfer or smudging.
- Perform a wash test on a sample garment to ensure the ink adheres properly and retains its color after washing.
- Check for any issues related to dye migration or color changes during the curing process.
- Clean Up:
- Clean screens and equipment thoroughly after printing to maintain their longevity and ensure consistent print quality in future runs.
To ensure the longevity and optimal performance of Monarch Stark White Plastisol Ink, it is essential to follow proper storage guidelines:
Room Temperature Storage: Store the ink containers in a cool and dry environment at room temperature. Avoid exposing the ink to extreme temperatures, such as freezing or high heat, as this can negatively impact the ink’s consistency and printing properties.
Avoid Direct Sunlight: Keep the ink away from direct sunlight or strong UV light sources. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause the ink to gel in the container and lead to undesirable changes in consistency.
Avoid Warm Temperatures: Monarch Stark White Plastisol Ink cures at 320 degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees Celsius) and is a low-cure ink. Exposure to warmer temperatures can cause gelling, making it challenging to print or even ruin the product. Prevent storing the ink in areas prone to excessive heat.
Proper Sealing: Always ensure that the ink containers are tightly sealed after each use. This prevents air and contaminants from entering the containers, maintaining the ink’s quality and preventing premature drying or thickening.
Regular Inspection: Periodically check the ink containers for any signs of spoilage, contamination, or change in consistency. If any abnormalities are detected, refrain from using the ink and contact the manufacturer or supplier for assistance.
By following these storage instructions, you can prolong the shelf life of Monarch Stark White Plastisol Ink and maintain its smooth texture and printing properties, ensuring exceptional results for your screen printing projects. Remember, proper ink storage is essential for achieving consistent and high-quality prints.
Note: Always follow safety guidelines and wear appropriate protective gear when working with plastisol ink and using conveyor dryers. Proper ventilation in the printing area is essential to minimize exposure to fumes.
By following these directions, using the right emulsion and mesh count, utilizing the Monarch Color Mixing System for custom Pantone colors, and implementing careful cooling and stacking practices, you can achieve exceptional results when printing with Monarch Stark White Plastisol Ink on cotton and 50/50 blends. Happy printing!
