Unleash your creative power with Excalibur Plastisol Inks!

X150 Nylon Bonding Agent
Printing nylon fabrics such as umbrellas or windbreakers is no longer a hassle with Excalibur's X150 Nylon Bonding Agent promotes adhesion on woven nylon fabrics such as umbrellas or nylon windbreakers. Simply add 10%-15% by weight of X150 to any Excalibur 500PF Series colour and mix thoroughly. While X150 and 500PF Series inks will adhere to many nylon fabrics, testing should be performed on the particular nylon that is being printed. X150 has a longer pot life than competitive brands of the same type product. Also, customers are not charged a "dangerous goods" surcharge by carriers because X150 is not listed on the Dangerous Goods list. The mixed ink requires no special curing procedures as it will cure at 320° Fahrenheit/160° Celsius.
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.
502PF Viscosity Reducer
502PF Viscosity Reducer is an intense product that in limited amounts greatly decreases the viscosity of the ink as well as increasing the flow characteristics making the ink clean completely from the screen. Limited amounts of 502PF Viscosity Reducer will make designs on light-colored shirts simulate the feel of a water-base print. As 502PF Viscosity Reducer is not a balanced product and can cause curing issues with any ink that it is added into, care should be taken and the following cautions explicitly followed when adding this product to any Excalibur plastisol ink!
HSA – High Stretch Additive
Excalibur’s HSA High-Stretch Additive when added in increments of 5-20% by weight to many Excalibur’s phthalate-free plastisol inks increases the stretch of designs printed on stretchy fabrics. Caution should be taken because amounts over 5% may reduce opacity and cause a shift in the colour. Do not add High-Stretch Additive to Excalibur 700PF Series Inks because the clarity of the metallic base will "cloud" and the reflectivity of the glitter and metallic particles will be greatly reduced.
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.
