We’ve renamed our super popular 900 Nylon Series and UltraMix® 9000 Nylon Series (Pantone® Color System) to All-Pro™ 900 and UltraMix® All-Pro™ 9000 respectively. Although the 900 and 9000 Series were initially created for printing on tough nylon substrates, they can print on much more. They’re now the go-to ink for many ad specialty, sports, safety and transfer printers. All-Pro™ 900 and All-Pro™ 9000 can be used for non-woven polypropylene substrates such as those used for reusable shopping bags and drawstring backpacks; and for other synthetic substrates used for such items as safety vests and swim vests.
All-ProTM 900 Series Plastisol Ink is a fast flashing, 2 part ink, specifically formulated for printing on normally hard to print Nylon.
Being the industry standard for over 15 years, the ink's harder finish resists scratching, scuffing and peeling for an extremely durable image.
It can also be used without catalyst on nonwoven polyporpylene bags (NPB) by adding up to 6% 3804 Low Cure Additive, which reduces cure temperatures down to 275°F (135oC).
The All-ProTM 900 Series Ink must be mixed with the All-ProTM 900 Catalyst before printing on Nylon. Catalyst is available in 2 ounce, 8 ounce, and 1 gallon containers. The catalyst should be thoroughly mixed in to the ink to the following proportions:
By volume = 16 parts ink to 1 part catalyst
By weight = 20 parts ink to 1 part catalyst
1 ounce of catalyst to 1 pint of ink
2 ounces of catalyst to 1 quart of ink
8 ounces of catalyst to 1 gallon of ink
Ink may be used immediately after mixing. Do not mix more ink than is needed for a job. Do not under-catalyze the ink. Pot life of mixed ink is 4 to 8 hours. Over-catalyzation will shorten the pot life.
If printing on cotton, it is not necessary to catalyze the ink. Print it as you would a normal direct print plastisol ink.
For standard colors, recommended screen mesh is 125-230 t/in (49-90 t/cm). For metallic colors, recommended screen mesh is 86-110 t/in (34-43 t/cm). For process colors, recommended screen mesh is 200-305 t/in (79-120 t/cm).
Adding too much reducer or other additives to the 900 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.
