BLEED RESISTANT PLASTISOL INK
- Phthalate Free, Highly pigmented
- Superb Opacity for dark backgrounds
- Ideal for printing on bleed-prone textile substrates
In Compliance with CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) 2008 Section 101 Lead Content in substrates (<300 ppm lead) Section 108 Phthalates (<.1% DBP DEHP,DINP,DIDP)
Cotton, 50/50 cotton/polyester blends, and some synthetics.
PF-BR Series is popularized for its 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-BR Series is ready-to-use straight from the container.
Important Note: PF-BR Series may not be used for heat transfer applications. Stir ink before using especially if separation occurs during storage. Always store container with lid on to ensure consistently smooth viscosity.
Note: Pre-test on actual substrates before any full production run, for dye bleeding, adhesion, wash fastness and other desired effects.
Durable, soft-hand finish.
Available low-bleed opaque colors.
Mesh counts up to 160 monofilament polyester (64T European Mesh).
Dual-sensitized direct method photo emulsion or SBQ pre-sensitized photo emulsion or equivalent.
Heat-cure at approximately 320°F (160°C) for 1 to 3 minutes. Will not air-dry.
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 RE-703 or RE-704, add 5% or less (by weight of ink). Reducer is to be used very sparingly and only when RE-705 can be added up to 10-20% (by weight of ink) if Bleed Resistance, Opacity 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.
