Printers Choice Plastisol Ink Application:
- Best suited for 100% Cotton and Cotton/Blends. When printing on 100% polyester, it is highly recommended to use a blocker to prevent dye migration and achieve optimal results. Always ensure the material is clean and free from any contaminants before printing.
2. Mesh Selection:
- Choose meshes between 86 – 305 Monofilaments based on the desired ink deposit and design detail.
3. Gel Temperature (Gel Temp.):
- Your ink should achieve a gel temperature between 155° – 165°F, ensuring that the ink has gelled properly before proceeding to the fusion stage.
- Cure the ink at a starting temperature of 280°F for a minimum of 1 minute 30 seconds. To expedite the curing process, you can elevate the temperature. However, bear in mind that temperatures exceeding 300°F elevate the risk of dye migration, which can compromise the print’s quality.
5. Application Technique:
- Employ the direct printing method. This ink’s high opacity facilitates efficient wet on wet printing. Ensure each layer gels correctly before overprinting.
6. Ink Modification:
- If you require adjustments to the ink, various additives are available for use. These include curable reducer, process clear, stretch additive, fashion base, finesse base, and more. To gain a deeper understanding of each additive, you can visit this link: Plastisol Inks Additives.
- Safely store your Plastisol Ink between 65-90°F (18-32°C).
