There's a reason that most of the shirts you see in stores are printed with plastisol ink.

Plastisol pops with bright, luscious color.

It’s a durable and reliable choice that makes creating shirts easier.

Professional screenprinters love it because it doesn’t dry in the screen or container.

It doesn’t erode the emulsion on your screen, so you can print a lot more shirts without adding an emulsion hardener.

It’s easy to clean up with merchmakr™ Wipe Out™ press wash.

Technical Specifications

Recommended Fabrics 100% cotton, some cotton/polyester blends and polyester. Always test print fabric before beginning a production run.
Ink Application Can be printed right out of the containers without any modifications. If thinning is desired for special applications, use ICC 1110LF Curable Reducer for best results. For softer feeling prints, add 10% to 20% by volume, to the ink. Reducing the ink with ICC 1110LF Curable Reducer and using finer screen meshes can also greatly improve the softness of the finish print.
Additives If thinning is required, use 1% to 10% by weight of ICC 1110LF Curable Reducer. Adding any reducers or additives can lower the bleed resistance, opacity, or increase cure times of ink. STIR the ink prior to printing on press and after addition of reducers or additives.

Important Information

Adding any reducers or additives can lower bleed resistance, reduce opacity, or increase cure times of the ink. Always stir the ink prior to printing and after the addition of reducers or additives.

Test dryer temperatures and wash test printed product before and during a production run.

This product will spot dry, with a very low after flash tack. Dwell time is dependent on the spot dryer used. In some cases, you may have to lower the heat of the spot cure unit because too much heat may actually make the ink tacky. When you spot dry, you are only partially fusing or gelling the surface of the ink. The ink should just be dry to the touch, with no lift off, but not totally fused. Totally fusing the underprint white may cause inter-coat adhesion problems with the inks printed on top of the white ink. Final fusing or curing will occur in the dryer.
