Xen White Plastisol Ink

Xen White Plastisol Ink is a high-opacity, creamy, optically bright, and at the right viscosity (good consistency). Xen White is a non-phthalate plastisol ink that fuses between 330-350F. Xen-White is recommended for cotton and 50/50 cotton/polyester.

Plastisol Ink Application Recommendations.

Most printers prefer 110 mesh, especially when they are printing dark shirts. Since Xen White is very thixotropic (thins down with stirring or mixing- you may need to mix it before using), you can use a higher mesh count as Xen White passes through finer mesh quickly. Due to its less gummy and thixotropic properties, you may find the most negligible ink accumulation on the sides. We recommend Xen White without thinning down, but you can add an ink reducer, especially when printing spun or combed cotton shirts. We also suggest using 70-durometer squeegees. We have seen printers using 60 or 80A, and some have reported using 70A beveled squeegee with great results- remember, by using a beveled squeegee, you apply a lesser amount of ink.

On automatic machines, we recommend triple or double durometer squeegee. For lighter shirts, you may be able to use only one coat on 110 mesh of XenWhite for the coverage here; it is essential to note that you use a higher solid emulsion such as one part QXL at 45% solids, or TEX, a dual cure diazo emulsion at 46% solid, to achieve a higher EMO (Emulsion over Mesh) that would yield a better "well or reservoir" for thicker ink deposit on the fabric. But if the fabric is rougher, such as a black or dark color carded cotton shirt allow two coats, use Xen White as is and put two coats with 110 mesh count with an off contact angle of 1/8 and possibly higher newtons for the screen tension above 25 & Plus some. One of the most important factors is the pressure applied as you push the ink down onto the fabric. It depends on factors such as the emulsion film, off-contact angle, type of squeegee, and the pressure being exerted.
The issues are the proper and optimum ink deposit and the release from the screen depending on the type of ink you use. It is important to have soft ink at the right viscosity; that is what you will find with Xen White. Then there is always the subject of how much pressure and pull or push the ink. This is where the experience of the printer counts: you are very cautious of fiber matte down and ink not looking fuzzy.

Xen White ink is recommended for cotton and 50/50 cotton/polyester. Xen White is a low bleeding and not a non-bleeding ink- That does not mean that the dark bleeding type shirt would not bleed. Use Mustang White to avoid bleeding. We suggest using a 110 mesh count for dark fabrics for better coverage. Bleeding-type dark shirts should give a proper test to ensure the non-bleeding effect of any ink before going into production. The other important factors are that the migration and sublimation both occur at 300F - So the flashing should be done between 200-250 F and the dryer should be
  • The dryer has to be maintained so that the temperature of the print is at 330-350F for one minute and twenty seconds for a complete fusion that would give the print a longer washability and fusion. The ink sometimes does not fuse properly due to low voltage- Test the temperature with a laser gun.
Stretch the fabric after printing to ensure the ink is fully cured. If ink cracked or did not stick to the fabric, it was not fully fused.

Reviewer: True Outsiders from Buffalo, NY United States  
Having been in the screen printing business for 20 years, the struggle of finding the correct inks for your needs is a constant one. I have found that in this Xenon white plastisol ink. Plenty bright and still affordable.
