Printing: Screen mesh in the 86-110 TPI range are recommended for best opacity. Higher mesh counts can be used but bleed may result. Screens of 25 n/cm or higher are strongly recommended. Use enough squeegee pressure to deposit the ink on the surface of the shirt, try not to drive the ink into the fabric. A 70 - 80 durometer squeegee is recommended. This enhances opacity and helps ensure a good cure Stencil: Use any direct emulsion or capillary film. Modifiers: Perma-White is ready to use. Modification is not necessary unless you are trying to achieve a special effect or use. Any extenders or modifiers will affect opacity. For general printing of 50/50Ís, try Polar White (XOLB-165) or XOLB-151. Flashing: Depending on your flash unit, "Glacier White" will flash in 3 seconds, (10 watts per sq. in/heating area) or 4-5 seconds (6-7 watts per sq. in. /heating area). Cleanup: Use any of the commercially available products for the cleanup of plastisol inks. Environmentally Friendly: QCM Plastisol Ink contains no leaded pigments and, when properly disposed of, has no environmental impact. Use a screen wash for plastisols for cleanup. Scrape screens carefully and store ink for reuse. Minimize unusable scrap ink by segregating ink by color.Statement:
