Rutland EH9020 Silky Cotton White Plastisol Ink
NPT SILKY Cotton White is designed for maximum smoothness and opacity on cotton fabrics.
NPT SILKY Cotton White is opaque, with excellent matting characteristics. This smooth, creamy consistency is easy to print with on both manual and automatic presses. NPT SILKY Cotton White is fast flashing, allowing for shorter dwell times and faster production rates. NPT SILKY Cotton White works well as a highlight white or a stand-alone white.
For best results, flood the image and print using a sharp 70 durometer squeegee. A 70 durometer or 65/90/65 durometer squeegee may be used when a very heavy deposit is required. NPT SILKY Cotton White will print through screen meshes in the range of 86-305 MCI (32-120 MC cm). For fine deposit, use 160 MCI (62 MC cm) mesh or higher when necessary. Coarse meshes (86-110 MCI, 34-43 MC cm) are recommended for a thicker ink deposit which may be needed for heavy cotton fleece fabric. Additives: NPT SILKY Cotton White is a ready-to-print ink. Reduce, only if necessary, using curable reducer. Reducing the viscosity will also reduce the opacity and coverage of the ink. Please test before production run. Flashing: Parameters vary between all flash units. Flash for 2-3 seconds with the ink deposit reaching 150-250°F (65-121°C). Ink should be dry and without tack. Warning: Over flashing can cure the ink and prevent adhesion between coats of ink. Curing: Cure at 320°F (160°C) over a 60-90 second period, depending on oven type and thickness of ink deposit. A thicker deposit will take longer to cure as the heat must penetrate through the entire ink layer.
