Unleash your creative power with Excalibur Plastisol Inks!



836PF High-Density Additive
Excalibur 836PF High-Density Additive when added to any color Excalibur’s 500PF or 550PF Series of phthalate-free plastisol inks transforms the flat ink into an ink capable of producing 3D-effects when printed through thick stencils produced with capillary films. Simply add 20% 836PF by weight to desired ink and mix thoroughly.
888PF Series Stretchback Transfer Adhesive
Excalibur’s 888PF Series is a single step screen printable transfer adhesive that can be used as a backing for screen printed, four color process heat transfers. Stretchback increases the opacity and allows designs to be printed on dark backgrounds. Transferred designs will now stretch and retract avoiding cracking. The image on the garment will have a very soft hand-feel.
841PF Printable Adhesive
841PF Printable Adhesive provides excellent results and greatly increases adhesion to fabrics when printed last over the entire transfer design. It is ideal for backing puff transfers and eliminates the need for dry powders. 841PF will give transferred designs a softer hand and good elongation when garment under design is stretched.
501PF Curable Reducer
Excalibur's 501 PF Curable Reducer can be added to any Excalibur Phthalate-Free Plastisol ink to not only drop the viscosity but also help improve the flow of the ink and help the ink clean completely from the screen mesh. Even though it can be used in any quantity the following precautions should be taken when mixing 501PF Curable Reducer into Excalibur Plastisols.
LCA – Low Cure Additive
An addition of 5% - 6% by weight of Excalibur Low-Cure Additive (LCA) reduces curing temperatures in many Excalibur direct printing inks by as much as 15° F. Consult the appropriate Technical Data Sheet for the exact curing temperature of the Excalibur plastisol the LCA will be mixed with. After curing inspect the print for a complete cure by stretching, or an even more definitive test would be to cut the print in half, wash one-half of print 3-5 times and compare to the unwashed print. If the print is fully cured both halves of print should look identical.

Always ensure any additive mixed into Excalibur plastisols is thoroughly mixed and test printed for desired effect prior to running production. Because Excalibur additives have been thoroughly tested in Excalibur plastisols we cannot guarantee the same results if the Excalibur additive is mixed with a competitive brand of plastisol.
HGA – High Gloss Additive
An addition of 3%-5% by weight of High Gloss Additive (HGA) greatly increases the gloss level of plastisol prints in most Excalibur plastisol inks.HGA works exceptionally well when mixed with any Excalibur high-density clear or Jelly Print Clear.

Caution: High Gloss Additive is not curable by itself and adding increments higher than 3-5% by weight will cause the ink to not cure and affect the durablility of the print. Likewise, adding too much will also affect the opacity and printability of the mixed ink.

Always ensure any additive mixed into Excalibur plastisols is thoroughly mixed and test printed for desired effect prior to running production. Because Excalibur additives have been thoroughly tested in Excalibur plastisols we cannot guarantee the same results if the Excalibur additive is mixed with a competitive brand of plastisol.
845PF High Bond Printable Adhesive
845PF High Bond Adhesive is a screen printable adhesive when applications such as heat transfers, foil or flock require an adhesive with higher bonding strength than any other Excalibur printable adhesive. This adhesive provides excellent results when used as an adhesive for foil or flock applications.
