The HydroTrans Reflective Transfer System is a two-part, PVC-free transfer system containing a silver and white water-based reflective ink. Transfers made with this ink produce reflective prints that are more durable and more reflective than many plastisol versions. Garments transferred with HydroTrans Reflective transfers will provide higher visibility in for joggers, cyclists or construction workers who wear the garment in low-light situations. Prints made with this ink are not recognized by insurance companies as their reflectivity does not meet safety standards for reduced rates. This is a two-part ink system, please pay close attention to mixing instructions below.

STI7160 and STI7161:2-3% by weight mixed into STI7581 White and RFU colours. 3½-5% by weight mixed into STI7711 Defender Black, STI7838, STI7700, STI7702 STI7835 or any highdensity colour.
CAUTION: Amounts less than the minimum amounts will result in a finished ink that may not cure properly. The amounts of catalyst mixed into the inks should be carefully weighed using a digital gram scale. STI7160 is a liquid that must be shaken vigorously before adding. It is recommended that only the amount of ink that can be printed in a four to six-hour period be mixed at any one time. Higher amounts of catalyst will diminish the pot life of ink faster.
Always test finished prints for curing, adhesion, opacity, bleed-resistance 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.
