Plastisol Special Effect Screen Inks

Technical Note

Our Plastisol based textile inks require heat to cure. Our recommended curing schedule for most of our Plastisol inks is 160º centigrade for 2 minutes. We recommend a wash test is carried out before commencing a print run. This is only a guide as under some conditions you may need to increase the dwell but not temperature. A catalyst can be added to aid adhesion and the curing process.

Phosphorescent (Glow In The Dark Inks)

Phosphorescent is a “glow in the dark” ink that appears off-white in daylight but glows bright green in the dark. Certain Fluorescent colours can be added to make different coloured effects. The length of time the after glow lasts depends on the amount of charge given to the ink and the thickness of print. Recommend mesh counts 32 to 62.

Chalk Board Tee Shirt Ink

Chalk Board Black is a platisol ink used to print a chalk receptive surface onto cotton or polyester material such as T-shirts. The ink is printed and heat-cured the same as a normal plastisol ink. Once cured the ink can be chalked onto as if it were a “blackboard” and the chalk removed by wiping with a damp cloth. The “blackboard” can then be re-used to promote a different message. Machine washing will eventually degrade the surface after approximately 10 - 20 washes. Recommend mesh count 43

Textile Transfer Foils

Foils are bright coloured metallic sheets used to decorate fabric when used in conjunction with a foil adhesive. The Foil Adhesive can be either a water based or plastisol screen printable glue that accepts metallic foils when heat pressed together. The design is screen printed onto the fabric and then semi-cured i.e. touch dried. The fabric is then placed in a transfer press and the foil positioned over the printed area and heat pressed together. After cooling the foil backing is peeled off leaving the printed design covered in foil.
