Use mesh 110 for dark shirts - you need to apply a heavier deposit of plastisol ink for coverage on dark shirts. Use 160-305 mesh count for lighter colors. There are some heavy shirts such as sweatshirts that may require an under-base. so whenever you are avoiding an under-base, make sure that you put a little heavier 2 coats - try it first, there is a possibility that you may not require an under-base. Use squeegee 60 -70 and use any direct emulsion to make screens - we recommend high solid one part "QXL" (45% solids).
For a heavier deposit of plastisol ink, you need a higher solids emulsion and the application of two deposits of emulsion, two on the print side and two on the squeegee side. cotton and 50/50 cotton/polyester fabrics print/ flash print for dark shirts and one stroke for lighter and white materials fully cured @ 330F
- The dryer has to be maintained so that the temperature at the print is at 320-350F for one minute and twenty seconds for a complete fusion that would give the print a longer washability and complete fusion. The ink sometimes does not fuse properly due to low voltage- Test the temperature with a laser gun. THE BEST COURSE IS TO CHECK ONE SHIRT OR PELLON FOR FUSION OF THE INK.
Store at room temperature and avoid storing in direct sunlight/humid air.
