3805LF Super Stretch Clear is a specially formulated non-phthalate plastisol ink which provides exceptional stretch properties. Used as a stretch additive, it increases the elongation properties of plastisol inks. 3805LF can be used as a foil adhesive, clear carrier for PVC or glass beads. This product can also be used as an overprint to produce a glossy/wet looking finish to your prints.
- As an additive, add 10% to 25% to any plastisol ink to improve the stretch and elongation characteristics of that ink
- When used on stretch fabrics such as Lycra/Spandex or 100% cotton knitted rib material use 3805LF Super Stretch Clear as a base when printing regular plastisol inks over the top of it
- Use a final overprint to create a wet or glossy wet look
Stretch fabrics such as Lycra/Spandex, 100% cotton knitted rib, or combinations of both. Not recommended for 100% polyester.
How to Use:
3805 Super Stretch Clear should be printed right from the container without modification.
When used on stretch fabrics such as Lycra/Spandex or 100% cotton knitted rib material use 3805 Super Stretch Clear as a base when printing regular plastisol inks over the top of it.
Use a final overprint to create a wet or glossy wet look.
As an additive, add 10% to 25% to any plastisol ink to improve the stretch and elongation characteristics of that ink.
Additions over 25% to another ink will diminish color strength and opacity. 3805 is not a low bleed product. Pre-print and test production on all fabrics to be printed for possible dye migration or bleeding. Dye migration or bleeding may not occur right away.
Screen Mesh and Emulsion:
Mesh counts higher than 110 t/in may not deposit enough ink to ensure proper stretch characteristics.
Any direct or indirect plastisol resistant emulsion; use 35 to 70 micron capillary film.
65-75 Durometer, sharp edge.
325°F to 350°F fusion/cure temperature for entire ink film. The optimum time/temperature cycle will vary with the amount of ink deposited, fabric and the type of heat source used. Test dryer temperatures and wash test printed product before a production run.
Any environmentally friendly plastisol screen wash.
Keep inks indoor and store in a cool area. Recommended storage at 65°F to 90°F. Avoid storage in direct sunlight and keep containers well sealed.
