Mulitpurpose Series Plastisol Ink is a line of non-phthalate, direct print plastisol ink formulated for use in many applications.
Can be used for direct printing, cold peel transfers, hot peel transfers (with the addition of 500 Quick-Trans Additive) and as a flock adhesive.
For softer feeling direct prints, add 5% to 25% by volume, of 720 Softhand Clear Base. Reducing the ink with 1110 Curable Reducer and using finer meshes can also greatly improve the softness of the finished print.
Transfers (cold peel): It is important that the inks are only gelled during the transfer printing process otherwise the inks will not have adequate adhesion during the final transfer application.
Transfers (hot peel): Mix inks with 500 Quick-Trans Additive and print on a hot peel release paper. Gelation temperatures are the same as cold peel transfers.
Cold peel transfers: 10 to 15 seconds @ 350°F to 375°F (177°C to 191°C). Medium pressure (40 Ibs.)
Hot peel transfers: 3 to 7 seconds @ 375°F to 400°F (191°C to 204°C). Medium to heavy pressure (40 lbs. to 60 lbs.)
Adding too much reducer or other additives to the Multipurpose Series inks may cause curing/fusing or increased dye migration problems. Test dryer temperatures and wash test printed product before and during a production run.
