585PF Series – Absolute White

585PF Absolute White’s high-viscosity make it an excellent choice to produce thick ink deposits that lay on top of the garment to produce the ultimate in coverage. 585PF can be used as an underbase, stand-alone or highlight white on 100% cotton and blended poly/cotton 50/50 fabrics. Even though 585PF Absolute White works well on many 50/50 poly/cotton it is not meant to be printed on fabrics without first testing for bleed-resistance of the finished print.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Formulated with an extremely viscosity to produce thick ink deposits through coarse meshes on automatic machines.
  • High-opacity formula easily covers dark backgrounds of 100% cotton and even some blends.
  • Contains no bleaching agents that will react with dye in garment.
  • Completely phthalate-free and lead-free formulation complies with all standards of Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) banning phthalates and heavy metals in textile-printing inks.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

Gel Temperature: Ink will gel on surface at 240° F (116° C).

Curing: Ink film will fully cure when the entire ink film reaches 320° F (160° C.) and held at this temperature for at least 15 seconds.

Heat Transfers: Miracle White and Miracle Gold  may be used in printing cold peel transfers.

Mesh: For direct printing a 40-110/inch (16T-43Tcm) may be used. For printing heat transfers an 80-125/inch (32T-50T cm) provides excellent results.

Stencil: Any stencil compatible with plastisol inks may be used.

Modification: Because plastisol inks are thixotropic and can body up during storage always stir ink thoroughly prior to print or adding reducers. If necessary 501PF Curable Reducer may be added increase printability of ink and to help clean from the screen. CAUTION: Adding too much 501PF Curable Reducer will reduce opacity and reduce bleed resistance.

Squeegee: 70 durometer or 90/70/90 triple durometer blades are recommended.

Printing Technique: A print/flast print technique may be necessary to produce desired results.

Clean-up: Use Enviro Series 2000 Green or Enviro Series TR Blend.

CAUTION

Always test finished prints for curing, adhesion, bleed-resistance and desired look prior to beginning full production runs. Lancer Group International cannot guarantee the results or back claims that this mixed ink will test phthalate-free if any additive other than an additive manufactured by Lancer Group International is used to modify this ink. Test results by a third-party laboratory verifying all components used to produce this ink are phthalate-free and lead-free are available upon request.
