Excalibur’s 103PF Fast Flash Additive when mixed in increments of 3-5% into and Excalibur plastisol ink will reduce the time necessary to reach the flash or gel temperature of that particular ink. This additive also eliminates the after-flash tack associated with the gel surface of the ink allowing printers to immediately put the second color on top without allowing the surface to cool. This additive is particularly useful for one station manual presses.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Mixes easily into any Excalibur plastisol ink.
- Reduces flash time and after-flast tack of ink to increase production.
- Completely PVC-free, 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.
Mixing: Add 3-5% by weight to any Excalibur plastisol ink and mix thoroughly.
Gel Temperature: Ink will gel on surface at 240° F (126° C).
Mesh: Choose mesh size most appropriate for design being printed and desired effect.
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 printing or adding reducers. If necessary Excalibur 501PF Curable Reducer may be added to increase printability of ink and help clean ink from the screen. CAUTION: Adding too much Excalibur 501PF Curable Reducer will reduce opacity and reduce clarity thus altering the sparkling look of the metallic print.
Squeegee: 70 durometer or 90/70/90 triple durometer blades are recommended.
Clean-up: Use Enviro Series 2000 Green or Enviro Series TR Blend.
Always test finished prints for curing, adhesion, opacity, and desired look prior to beginning full production runs. Lancer Group International cannot guarantee the results or back claims that this ink will test PVC-free or 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 PVC-free, phthalate-free and lead-free are available upon request.
