Printing plasticharge has never been easier. Avient's Aquarius line of Plasticharge products helps screen printers get that signature discharge printing look and feel with the plastisol inks they already have on hand.
Choose your plastisol color and mix with Aquarius Plasticharge Additive at a 1:1 ratio. Next, add the Aquarius ZF Activator agent at 6% of the weight of the plasticharge additive. Be sure to add the ZF agent just prior to printing and mix until the powder is completely dissolved in the mixture.
The resulting ink mixture will have a consistency similar to water based inks and can be discharged when printing on cotton garments. Discharge and plasticharge inks soak into cotton fibers, release the dyes from the underlying substrate when run through a dryer and replace them with the discharge color pigments.
Plasticharge prints produce durable, bright, opaque prints with an incredibly soft hand feel. Conventional plastisol inks can also be layered on top of plasticharge, making it useful as an underbase.
When working with red and orange colors, care should be taken to avoid scorching. Reduce the additive to 30% (70% plastisol, and 30% Plasticharge additive) and also reduce the ZF Agent to 4%.
Consult your shirt provider to make sure you are getting quality dischargeable cotton shirts or colors may change during the curing process.
This kit also includes Chromaline's MagnaCure UDC-ACE, an easy-to-work-with dual cure emulsion that produces durable stencils with excellent water resistance, one can of Sprayway 32 Waterbase Screen Opener and a Cen-Tech Digital Scale.
