Excalibur’s Performance Plus is a new, state of the art, low-cure series of plastisol inks formulated for decorating today’s specialized performance wear fabrics. Performance Plus’s low-cure temperature of 270° Fahrenheit (132°C) make it an excellent choice when trying to to prevent shrinkage and scorching of heat-sensitive, synthetic fabrics. Performance Plus’s creamy, easy-printing consistency, opacity and smooth soft surface in finished prints also makes it an excellent, all-around choice for 100% cotton and 50/50 poly/cotton blends.
The plasticizers used to formulate this ink series are not bleed-resistant, Performance Plus must be underbased with Excalibur’s reformulated Defender Dye Blockers to help withstand dye migration. Performance Plus is available in White, 23 ready-for-use colours and a Defender Black Dye Blocker for underbasing sub-dye polyesters or any nasty polyester prone to dye migration.
