158 Creamy Glacier White is the latest, most dramatic white. It exhibits a brilliant whiteness, so white it almost glows! Glacier White has a soft, creamy consistency that is easy to print but also has a very high opacity. It has good flash times and fair low-bleed qualities. Prints on 50/50 cotton poly blends and 100% cotton. Excellent for use as an under-base as well as a “finish” white where you need areas of a design to pop out.

PRINTING RECOMMENDATIONS: Screen meshes in the range of 74-110 (29-43cm) are recommended for best opacity. So creamy it prints easily through a 230 mesh without reducing for maximum opacity. Direct emulsions, capillary film or indirect stencil films are all suitable for screen preparation. Screens of 20 n/cm or higher are strongly recommended. If using lower tension screens adjust off contact accordingly. Use just enough squeegee pressure to deposit the ink on the surface of the shirt. This enhances opacity and helps ensure a good cure. Try not to drive the ink into the fabric. Squeegees in the 60-70 durometer range, round or sharp edge depending on preference, work well.

FLASH CURING: Depending on your flash unit, "Glacier White" will flash in 3 seconds, (10 watts per sq. in/heating area) or 4-5 seconds (6-7 watts per sq. in./heating area).

CURING: Recommended cure temperature is 325o F (160o C) for 60-90 seconds, depending on the curing unit and thickness of ink deposit. The ink film must be heated throughout to thoroughly cure. When thoroughly cured the ink is 100% washable. Low wash temperatures and cool dryer settings are recommended. Do not iron or dry clean.

FINISH: Glacier White cures to a very flat and smooth finish. Excellent for a base plate or used as a highlight. Smoothness requires filling the nap of the weave. A more open screen may be needed for better opacity. Off contact allows the screen to clearly break away from the surface of the garment.

SUBSTRATES: Glacier White is designed to provide maximum opacity on dark fabrics, 100% cotton or cotton/poly blends. It has good "low-bleed" qualities.

MODIFIERS: Glacier White is ready to use. Modification is not necessary unless you're trying to achieve a special effect or use. Any extenders will affect opacity. QCM's DT-01 detackifier can be added at a ratio of 1-2% (not to exceed 5%) to reduce viscosity while maintaining opacity. XOLB-158 has excellent shelf life and with cool storage will maintain its creamy consistency.
