- For making plastisols adhere to tightly woven nylon. - Works with most any plastisol which does not contain water.
SHELF LIFE: 10 percent mixture: Up to 12 hours. 15 percent mixture: Up to 8 hours.
CURING: A Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding Agent Plastisol mixture must be cured just like regular plastisol. Curing temperatures should not exceed 285-300F (140 to 149C). Over curing is not recommended as this may affect adhesion. Lower temperatures may be satisfactory as the Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding Agent Plastisol mixture will cross-link (but very slowly) at room temperature when catalyzed sufficiently.
ADHESION: If cured correctly, prints should be sufficiently dry for handling and light stacking when they exit the dryer. MAXIMUM ADHESION IS DEVELOPED 24-48 HOURS AFTER PRINTING. If prints do not resist scratching or digging with a fingernail, this may be an indication that insufficient Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding Agent was added. The more Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding Agent that is added to the ink, the faster prints will cure, but the mixture will also set up faster in the can and in the screen.
OTHER USES: Nylobond is sometimes used at 3% to resolve fibrillation issues when printing on 100% cotton.
MIXING INSTRUCTIONS: Add 10-15% Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding Agent to the plastisol by weight. To obtain a 10% addition, the following is recommended. To 1 qt. white add 6 oz. Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding AgentTo 1 qt. colour add 4 oz. NYLOBOND
For more effective bonding on more highly water-proofed garments use 15%; test for adhesion after 24-48 hours. To 1 qt. white add 9 oz. Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding AgentTo 1 qt. colour add 6 oz. Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding Agent
Less than 10% Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding Agent may prevent proper adhesion or diminish abrasion resistance.
More than 15% Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding Agent may diminish opacity and shorten shelf life.
When Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding Agent is first mixed with plastisol, it may lower the viscosity of the ink considerably. If the ink is too thin to print successfully, allow the mixture to sit for a few hours to slowly thicken or add PLUE-9114 Thickener at 1-5% by weight until desired printing viscosity is reached. Although Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding Agent will work with any plastisol the PLUE and PATE Series inks are highly recommended. PATE-1000 White will give excellent opacity on dark jackets because the tightly woven satin nylon fabric prevents the ink from penetrating. Union Ink NYBD912016 Nylobond Bonding Agent should not be used with Low-Bleed Inks
Union Ink does not knowingly add plasticizers containing the phthalates listed and outlined in California Bill 1108, CPSIA HR-4040 and Oeko-tex Standard 100. The plasticizers identified may include di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP), diisononyl phthalate (DINP), diisodecyl phthalate (DIDP), di-n-octyl phthalate (DnOP), (DIBP) Di-iso-butyl, and (DMP) Dimethylphthalate, including esters of ortho-phthalic acid and are not direct ingredients in the manufacture of our Non-Phthalate Inks. Union Ink does not test the final product for amounts of the aforementioned phthalate plasticizers and esters and encourages all users to conduct testing for their intended use.
