International Coatings 720 Softhand Clear Base
720 Softhand Clear Base is a super clear, curable extender base plastisol. This product is formulated to soften, extend and increase flow characteristics of most plastisol inks.
Using IC 720 Softhand Base
720 Softhand Clear Base can be added to the 700 Series, Multipurpose, 1100 Series, 7600 Series and 800 Series inks for improved hand, cost and printability. 720 is very clear and is highly recommended for extending any process color.
For a softer hand, add approximately 10% to 20% by volume of 720 Softhand Clear. More may be added, if necessary, without affecting the cure or fusing of the mixed ink. The more Softhand added, the less opaque the mixed ink will be.
Using the 720 Softhand in the 800 Series inks to print on light colored fabrics greatly lowers the cost of the mixed ink. Adding 720 Softhand to 800 Series inks in amounts higher than 20% by volume may shift mixed Pantone® colors.
Note - The addition of 720 Softhand Clear will reduce the bleed resistance of low bleed inks.
