When it comes to hard to print nylon, the 900 series inks are recognized as the industry's best. 900 series inks are a fast flashing, two-part ink system specifically formulated for printing on nylon. It can also be used to print on Non-Woven Polypropylene Bags (NPB) without catalyst (add 6% 3804 Low Cure Additive to lower the cure temperature to 250°F. These inks are as easy to use as conventional plastisols and extremely durable.
The 900 All Pro™ Series is part of the FlexCure™ Line and cures between 275°F to 325°F.
The 900 Series Nylon Ink must be mixed with the 900 Catalyst before printing on Nylon. Catalyst is available in 2 oz. and 8 oz. containers.
The catalyst should be
thoroughly mixed in to the ink to the following proportions:
By volume = 16 parts ink to 1 part catalyst
By weight = 20 parts ink to 1 part catalyst
1 oz. of catalyst for 1 pint of ink
2 oz. of catalyst for 1 quart of ink
8 oz. of catalyst for 1 gallon of ink
Ink may be used immediately after mixing. Do not mix more ink than is needed for a job.
Do not under-catalyze the ink. Pot life of mixed ink is 4 to 8 hours. Over-catalyzation will
shorten the pot life.
If printing on cotton, it is not necessary to catalyze the ink. Print it as you would a normal
direct print plastisol ink.
