Create a “Stone Looking Effect” with this direct printing plastisol ink base. This plastisol ink has very good opacity. A thick stencil is recommended. Also available in a wide range of popular colors.
Stencil: 250 to 400 micron direct capillary stencils. Thinner stencils may require repeated print/flash/print cycles to obtain desired effect.
OR: Direct emulsion may be used with multiple coat & dry applications to achieve desired thickness.
Mesh: 750 Series inks will print thru 60 to 110/inch (32T to 44T/cm). 60/inch (24T/cm) is highly recommended.
Reducer: 502 Viscosity Reducer can be used in limited quantities of 1-3% by weight. The addition of excessive amounts of 502 Viscosity Reducer will increase the curing times. Reducers will increase ink flow and help reduce build up. **Please note that inks should be thoroughly stirred prior to printing, inks are thixotropic and will naturally reduce with stirring.
Squeegee: Use a medium (70) durometer.
Curing: 750 Series inks will cure at a temperatures between 320-350F (160-177C).
Caution: Curing times will increase greatly due to the thickness of the ink film. The entire thickness of ink must reach said temperature to achieve a full cure. The cured print should resist cracking. If the print is under cured poor washablity will result. Tests for product compatibility should always be conducted prior to production runs.
