Legend Bright Cotton White is a high-performance white plastisol ink destined to become the white of choice by printers for 100% cotton fabrics of all colors. The optically-brightened white has excellent coverage, flashes fast and shears quickly under pressure for easier printing on both manual and automatic presses. Legend Bright Cotton White provides excellent results as an under base, stand-alone or highlight white when printed through mesh counts ranging from coarse to fine. It’s exceptionally smooth surface provides the perfect canvas to make overprint colors stand out when used as an underbase in spot color or simulated process prints.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
• High-opacity, fast-flashing ink for use as an under base, stand-alone or highlight white on both manual and automatic presses.
• Creamy, easy-printing consistency produces sharp prints through high-mesh counts making Legend White an excellent underbase and highlight white for simulated process prints.
• Optically brightened to produce a brilliant white ink for maximum brightness.
• Completely 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.
Gel Temperature: Ink will surface gel at 240° F (116° C).
Curing: Prints will fully heat cure when the entire ink film reaches 320°F (160°C).
Heat Transfers: Legend White may be used in printing cold peel transfers.
Mesh: For direct printing a 80-305/inch (32T-122Tcm) may be used. For printing heat transfers an 80-125/inch (32T-50T cm) provides excellent results.
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 501PF Curable Reducer or 502PF Viscosity Reducer may be added increase printability of ink and to help clean ink from the screen. CAUTION: Adding too much 501PF Curable Reducer will reduce opacity and bleed-resistance and adding too much 502PF Viscosity Reducer can affect the curing of the ink.
Squeegee: 70 durometer or 90/70/90 triple durometer blades are recommended.
Printing Techniques: A print/flash/print technique may be necessary to produced desired results on dark garments.
Clean-up: Use Enviro Series 2000 Green or Enviro Series TR Blend.
Always test finished prints for gel, curing, adhesion and desired look prior to beginning full production runs. Lancer Group International cannot guarantee the results or back claims that this mixed ink will test 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 phthalate-free and lead-free are available upon request.
