Highlights

  • Excellent bleed resistance at a wide temperature range, low cure 270°F/132°C with maximum cure of 320°F/160°C
  • Shears down quickly to a creamy, smooth body
  • Soft hand and excellent stretch with a superior opacity on dark fabrics
  • Produces great to excellent half tones
  • Non-migrating pigments provide for color value stability over a wide range of under base options as well as direct to fabric
  • Works well on manual or automatic presses

Printing Tips

  • Use 86–230t/in (34-90t/cm) mesh screens for best performance and opacity
  • For best results, use a print-flash-print technique to ensure sufficient ink deposit on dark fabrics
  • For challenging polyester fabrics, use Union Ink™ UPLC1550 Low Cure Barrier Grey or UPLC8550 Barrier Black as a base layer to achieve maximum bleed resistance
  • Adjust flash cure temperature and dwell time so ink is just dry to touch. Avoid excessive flash temperatures to protect fabric and migration of dyes. Depending on flash unit, a 3 - 5 second flash is adequate
  • A behavior for high-opacity low cure inks is to "body-up" or gain viscosity when at rest. Be sure to "Pre-shear" or agitate this ink before use to achieve optimal flow before printing. Be careful to not use highspeed drills or similar equipment that will create friction-heat that can cause the ink to begin to cure. Store ink buckets up off of cold floors to non-phthalate reduce pre-sheer time
  • Adjust your print parameters to allow this ink to clear fully on the second stroke using medium to low pressure for best dye blocking and opacity. As this ink shears down, less pressure will be required. Adjust accordingly
  • Curing is a time and temperature process. Using a lower temperature, at a lower belt speed will provide the best result without damaging the fabric
