Rutland Low Bleed Ink - Grey
Approximate PMS Match = 423C.
Gallon Size - EL HO LB RFU inks are formulated as a press-ready plastisol for printing on polyester and polyester/cotton blends. They will provide good bleed resistance and brilliant colors when printed in the lower mesh range and used over a LB White underlay. We suggest using EL9746 NPT Super Poly White for Polyester fabrics and EL9074 NPT LB White for poly/cotton blends.
- Creamy and very low wet tack for easy printing.
- Ready for use, just stir and print.
- Great for hand presses or automatic printing machines.
- Easy to use, maintains print viscosity without thinning during print run.
- Formulated to be opaque for direct printing on both lights or darks.
- Competitive with lower opacity products currently sold in the print market.
Print NPT HO LB inks onto polyester or polyester/cotton blends over an NPT underlay white for brilliant colors. Caution! Extremely bad bleeding polyester may require an under base of EL9746 Super Poly White or ES0266 Barrier Base for maximum bleed blocking. EL NPT HO LB ink is normally printed through mesh ranges from 86 to 200 mc.in. (34 to 78 mc. CM.) Recommend 70-80 Durometer squeegee with sharp edge for maximum definition. Proper cure is achieved when garment reaches 320°F (160°C.).
This series of inks are not designed for wet-on-wet printing - you should flash cure between each color.
Poorly dyed polyester or too much heat in the curing process can overcome any low bleed inks ability to block the migration. For severe migration use ES0266 Barrier Base as an underlay. *Note to 100% Cotton users: 100% Cotton could have a ghost image appear if printed with low bleed inks. EL NPT HO LB inks are low bleed inks and should not be printed on 100% Cotton. These products are recommended for polyester and polyester/cotton blends.
