Aquarius Migration Stop
Zodiac™ Aquarius™ Migration Stop is critical first-down base component to prevent dye migration when printing digital hybrid inks on 100 percent polyester fabrics and blends.
After the optional Migration Stop, the first white layer would be in your next screen followed by a screen with a mixture of Digital White and Digital Matte Clear.
The hybrid print would occur next and an optional Aquarius Digital Matte Clear layer may be used to "seal" the hybrid print.
DIGITAL HYBRID INK SYSTEM
Aquarius Digital Hybrid ink System consists of a high opacity Digital White and
Digital Matte Clear. Designed to provide maximum opacity and an excellent surface to receive a digitally printed image. Resulting prints will be soft hand and flexible with excellent wash performance.
- Used in conjunction with a hybrid digital machine
- Excellent color yield and print definition
- Stays open in the screen
Use Digital White as first layer, 110-160T/in (43-64T/cm) mesh. If fabric is prone to bleed, a layer of Aquarius Migration Stop is required first, recommended mesh count: 86-110t/in (34-43t/cm).
Before the digital squeegee print a mixture of Digital White and Digital Matte Clear (80/20) to receive the digital ink, 160-195 T/in (64-77 T/cm) mesh.
A final layer of Digital Matte Clear is optional to protect digital ink application, 230-280T/in (90-110T/ cm) mesh.
