AXEON™ Glitter Base 1859 works as a carrier for metallic and colored glitter flake designs.

Glitter Base 1859 adheres strongly with metallic or colored glitter flake for excellent durability.
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 be just dry to the touch, with no lift off, but not totally fused. Totally fusing the underprint may cause inter-coat adhesion problems with the inks printed on top. Final fusing or curing will occur in the dryer. Failure to fuse ink properly may cause cracking, poor adhesion and poor wash fastness.
It is extremely important to preprint and test printed fabrics for wash and wear durability before beginning production.
A forced air dryer is highly recommended for proper curing/fusion of this product. Complete fusion of this product may be very difficult to achieve in an infrared dryer since metallic glitter flakes reflect infrared heat.
For best durability of the glitter print after it is applied, it is recommended that the garment be hand washed or machine washed (delicate cycle) inside out and line or air dried. Do not use bleach. Do not iron over printed areas.
Test dryer temperatures and wash test printed product before and during a production run.
