ATHLETIC & POLY PLASTISOL INK
- Phthalate Free, Highly pigmented
- Superb Opaque for dark-colored backgrounds
- Best for printing on most bleed-prone textile substrates
In Compliance with CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) 2008 Section 101 Lead Content in substrates (<300 ppm lead) and Section 108 Phthalates (<.1% DBP DEHP,DINP,DIDP)
Cotton, 50/50 cotton/polyester blends, and some synthetics.
PF-ATH Series is popularized for its strongest Bleed Resistant characteristics on dark-colored or bleed-prone textiles. It assures non-migration of fabric dye into the print and leaves a very high opaque, soft-hand finish.
PF-ATH Series is ready-to-use straight from the container.
Important Note: Always store container with lid on to ensure consistently smooth viscosity.
Note: Pre-test on actual substrate before any full production run, for dye bleeding, adhesion, wash fastness and other desired effects.
Durable, soft-hand finish.
Available low-bleed opaque colors; formulated using non-leaded pigments.
Mesh counts up to 160 mono filament polyester (64T European Mesh).
In situations where bleed resistance and opacity is not crucial, extend with PF-GP 081 Clear Extender Base for longer ink mileage.
To reduce ink viscosity with RE703 or RE704, add 1-5% or less (by weight of ink). Reducer is to be used very sparingly and only when RE705 can be added up to 5-10% (by weight of ink) if Bleed Resistance, Opacity, or color shade, is not crucial.
When printing textiles, use a medium hard (65-75 durometer) squeegee.
Plastisols respond to heat. Always store at cool room temperatures below 90°F (32°C). Avoid exposing inks to elevated temperatures before printings.
