XOLB-165 Polar White is designed for maximum bleed resistance on 50/50
Cotton Polyester blend fabrics. It is extremely opaque and matts fibers
well producing prints with outstanding coverage. The smooth creamy
consistency is easy to print with on both manual and automatic presses.
XOLB-165 Polar White is fast flashing allowing for shorter dwell times
and faster production times. Polar White is ideal for use as a base
plate/under-base white or as a bright clean highlite white.
MESH: 80-305 Monofilament polyester tightened to
manufacturers specs. For smoothest deposit use
160 mesh or higher. Coarse meshes are recommended
for a thicker ink deposit. Heavy fleece may require
a thicker deposit.
STENCIL: Use any direct emulsion or capillary film
ADDITIVES: Polar White is ready to print. Reduce only
if necessary using P-5011 curable reducer. Reducing
the viscosity will also reduce the opacity and coverage
of the ink. Please test before production run. For
printing on nylon mix with MF-66 Nylon Bonding Agent.
WET-ON-WET PRINTING: In many cases Polar White
will print wet-on-wet. If build up occurs mix 10%-20%
WOW-1001 Halftone Base into Polar White and test.
Add more WOW-1001 Halftone Base as needed.
PRINTING: For best results flood the image and print
using a sharp 70 durometer squeegee. A 60 duro
squeegee may be used when a very heavy deposit is
FLASHING: Parameters vary between all flash units.
Flash for 2-3 seconds with the ink deposit reaching
150-250 degrees F. Ink should be dry and without
CURING INK: Cure at 325 F over a 60-90 second
period depending on oven type and thickness of ink
deposit. A thicker deposit will take longer to cure as
the heat must penetrate through the entire ink layer.
WARNING: High heat during curing may lead to a
rough surface and in extreme cases bubbling. Please
keep dryer temperatures controlled.
