LBX is a non-phthalate liquid plasticizer used for modifying or reducing the viscosity of standard plastisol inks.
The recommended proportion is 1% to 5% by weight.
LBX is a non-curable viscosity modifier and if used in excess will cause fusing or curing problems. LBX should not be used in any low bleed inks as it will greatly lower the bleed resistance of those inks.
This product has only been tested with International Coating’s inks. If this product is used with another manufacture’s products, proper testing must be done to help insure the performance and durability of the mixed product. The use of a curable reducer is highly recommended for general use when adjusting the viscosity of plastisol inks.
Products that are designated as curable reducers will fuse or cure by themselves with the application of proper heat and time. The use of a curable reducer is highly recommended for general use when adjusting the viscosity of plastisol inks because these curable reducers and modifiers can fuse or cure by themselves with the proper application of heat and time. This means that if too much of the curable reducer or curable modifier is added, the mixed ink will still fuse or cure.
The more curable reducer or curable modifier added, the more the opacity of the mixed product will be lowered.
