|Recommended Fabrics||100% cotton, cotton/polyester blends and polyester. Always test print fabric before beginning a production run.|
|Ink Application||7014 Legacy White should be used right from the container without any modifications.|
|Additives||If thinning is required, use 1% to 10% by weight of 1099 Curable Low Bleed 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.|
|Screen Mesh||Use 60-230 t/in or 24-90 t/cm monofilament. |
Use 110-230 t/in or 43-90 t/cm monofilament for under basing.
|Emulsion||Any direct or indirect emulsion or capillary film in the 35-70 micron range.|
|Squeegee||65-70 Durometer sharp edge.|
|Cure Temperatures||325°F (163°C) for 1 minute Dependent on dryer speed and temperature settings.|
|Clean-Up||Any environmentally friendly plastisol screen wash. For best results, use merchmakr™ Wipe Out™ Press Wash.|
|Storage||65° to 90°F (18° to 32°C) Avoid storage in direct sunlight. Keep containers well sealed.|
Fibrillation can occur when printing on some cotton fabrics, especially when printing through finer mesh counts.
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.
