Puff Plastisol Textile Ink

 
 

Puff Inks

 

Atlas Plastisol Puff Ink series is a direct print plastisol puff ink. These inks are creamy and easy to print. All colors have excellent opacity on dark fabrics. Atlas Plastisol Puff Ink is easy to use and results in a durable, raised ink film when fused at the proper temperature. (Contains less than 0.025% lead).

Substrates:

Polyester, Cotton/Polyester blends and Cotton.

Application Information:

Mesh:

Maximum puff on a large print area - 60-86 threads/in.

For fine detail 95-110 threads/in.                   

White or light fabrics: 110-280 threads/in.

Squeegee:

60 to 70 Durometer straight, bevel, sharp or rounded edge.

Emulsion:

Conventional direct, indirect or capillary films.

Curing:

300 F - 320 F (149 C-160 C)

Since Atlas Plastisol Puff ink does not air dry, the ink must be fused or gelled with an appropriate heat source. The optimum time/temperature cycle will vary with the amount of ink deposit, fabric, and the type of heat source used. Plastisols actually achieve the proper fusion point as soon as the innermost section of the ink film reaches the prescribed temperature. Test dryer temperatures before a production run. Wash test product before a production run.

Health & Safety:

Complete Health and Safety Data available upon request.

Modifiers:

Atlas Plastisol Puff Inks may be used straight from the container. If modification is desired, add 3% to 5% of curable reducer. Caution: Excessive modification will impair puff.

Wash Up:

Conventional Solvents or Atlas Screen Wash.

  •  In multi color printing, it is necessary to flash the puff prior to overprinting.
