Screen Printing Directions with Monarch Vivid Standard Color Plastisol Inks:
- Prepare Your Screen and Ink: Ensure your screen is clean and free from any contaminants. Prepare the Monarch Vivid Standard Color Plastisol Ink by giving it a good stir before use. The ink’s low tack formula allows you to print through finer mesh counts without the need for viscosity modifiers, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free printing process.
- Select Your Mesh Count: Choose the appropriate mesh count for your desired print. Monarch Vivid Standard Color Plastisol Inks can be printed through mesh ranging from 86 to 300 mc (microns). For softer hand-feel and excellent opacity, use finer mesh counts.
- Set Up Your Press: Set up your screen printing press, whether it’s an automatic or manual press. Ensure the screen is securely attached and properly aligned with the garment or substrate.
- Flood and Position the Screen: Apply the Monarch Vivid Standard Color Plastisol Ink to the screen and position it correctly over the garment. Ensure the ink fully covers the design area on the screen.
- Perform the Print Stroke: Use a smooth and even print stroke to ensure even ink distribution on the fabric. With the right squeegee blade durometer (70° – 80°), you can achieve consistent and sharp prints.
- Flash Cure (Optional): If necessary, flash cure the ink after each color layer to avoid smudging or unwanted blending. The flash temperature should be set between 240°F to 260°F to achieve efficient curing without overheating the fabric.
- Printing on Polyester or Migrating Garments: If you are printing on 100% polyester or a garment that is prone to dye migration, it is recommended to apply a blocker first. The blocker will prevent the dyes from the fabric from affecting the final print’s brightness and ensure better color vibrancy.
- Final Curing: After completing all color layers, cure the prints in a conveyor dryer at a temperature of 320°F. Ensure that the entire garment is exposed to the curing temperature for a sufficient amount of time to achieve proper fusion and durability.
- Perform a Stretch Test: To ensure the ink is fully cured and adhered to the fabric, perform a stretch test on a sample print. Gently stretch the fabric to check for any cracking or lifting of the ink. If the ink passes the stretch test, it is fully cured and ready for use.
- Clean Up: Clean your screens and equipment thoroughly after printing to maintain their longevity and ensure consistent print quality in future runs.
With Monarch Vivid Standard Color Plastisol Inks, you have the freedom to create vibrant and high-quality prints on various fabrics. Enjoy the ease of use and exceptional performance of these inks, making your screen printing projects a true success. Happy printing!
- To ensure the longevity and optimal performance of Monarch Vivid LB Inks, 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 Vivid LB Inks are low-cure inks, and 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 Vivid LB Inks and maintain their 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.
Before proceeding with the printing process, it is crucial to perform a test on a sample garment using all inks from the Monarch Vivid LB Blending System. Testing the inks on a sample garment ensures that the color remains consistent during the curing process and in the days following printing.
