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.
ABA – Low-Buildup Additive
Occasionally, on the bottoms of screens, inks will build-up causing printers costly down time when they have to stop the press and wipe ink from the bottoms of screens. This can happen due to shop conditions, screen tension, an ink not made to be printed wet on wet is being printed wet-on-wet or a myriad of other reasons beyond the printer and ink manufacturer's control.

If this happens, an addition of 10% by weight of Excalibur's Low-Build-Up Additive (ABA) will greatly reduce build-up and minimize down time of your press.
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.
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!
846PF/847PF High Stretch Adhesive
846PF Printable Adhesive is a state of the art printable adhesive that provides excellent results and greatly increases adhesion to fabrics when printed last over the entire transfer design. It is ideal for backing puff transfers, tagless labels or for increasing the durability of athletic transfers. 846PF eliminates the need for dry powders. 846PF will give transferred designs a softer hand and excellent elongation when garment under design is stretched. 847PF Printable Adhesive is a more opaque version for applications where a higher opacity print is necessary.
