Lancer Group’s STI7700 Silicone Metallic Series is eight silicone rubber colours formulated from the STI7700 Clear Base. Prints made with this series will have a stunning, shimmering and sparkling effect and exhibit extremely high-stretch in the finished decoration when printed on performance wear fabrics. The small, .004 x .004 size of the metallic flakes easily pass through 60-110/24-43T meshes. When printing on dark colours, sub-dyed fabrics or fabrics known to migrate, colours may need to be underbased with STI7581 White and backed with STI7911 Defender Black Dye Blocker for best results. Multiple coatings of direct emulsion that produce thicker stencils may also be necessary to achieve desired effect. Note: This ink must be catalyzed prior to printing.
