Union Ink PLPE9111 EF PLASTIPUFF Additive will produce beautiful multi-colour effects if quickly flash cured between colours. Do not flash long enough to complete the puff process; only to the gel point to avoid pressing into the garment when successive colours are printed over it. Puff the ink on the final cure.
Important Note on Curing: Excellent puffing is achieved at temperatures too low to fully cure the plastisol. It is important to reach the recommended temperature to ensure proper adhesion. If the print cracks when folded, it is not properly cured.
PUFF ADDITIVE: Standard plastisol can be turned into plastisol puff by adding PLPE-9111 Puff Additive to regular PLUE Series plastisol. (For more durable puffing add Super Puff Additive PLFS-E9111 to PATE Athletic Ink). For fluorescent puff ink, add PLPE-9111 Puff Additive to PLUE Series Fluorescent colours. Add Puff Additive at the rate of 1 part additive to 6 parts plastisol BY VOLUME or up to 15% by weight and follow the directions for PLASTIPUFF.
SCREEN FABRIC: Monofilament meshes ranging from 33-76T (14-29T metric) may be used. High ink deposits will produce higher expansion (Best results are obtained by thick stencils to further increase ink deposits). REDUCERS: PLASTIPUFF Inks are supplied Ready For-Use. If necessary use very small amounts of Detack/Reducer. Always stir well to break down false body and determine the actual working viscosity prior to adding reducer. WASHABILITY: Excellent. Do not dry clean. Imprinted areas should not be ironed.
CAUTION: Always pre-test for curing, adhesion, puff height, wash-resistance, etc. before production.
