For direct printing or transfer applications.
Stencils: Use any direct emulsion or capillary film.
Additives: Glitter Plastisol inks are supplied ready to print. Reducer/Detackifier (PLRE-9000) may be added if a thinner consistency is required.
Mixing: The availability of two Clear Glitter Bases, PAGE-9030 Standard Clear Base & PAGE-9032 Premium Clear Base. make it possible for the user to make additional glitter colours by using other Heat Stable dry glitter flakes available from Union Ink or your local distributor. For a Retro_ Glossy looking glitter use our PAGE-9030 and up to 1.5 - 2 lbs. of dry glitter flake per gallon. For more sparkle and a matte or dry look use our PAGE-9032 and up to 1.5 - 2 lbs. of dry glitter flake per gallon.
Printing Instructions: As recommended, mesh counts higher than 40 (15 metric) should not be used as this will limit the inks ability to flow onto the garment and will result in a very spotty, irregular finish.
Curing Instructions: These inks will cure at 300° F (149°C). Because of the reflective nature of this ink, it requires a longer curing time and more heat to reach the required temperature than a standard plastisol.
Wash-Up: Clean the screens and squeegees with mineral spirits or any Eco-Friendly screen wash designed for plastisol inks.
Caution: Always test this product for curing, adhesion, crocking, opacity, washability and other specific requirements prior to using in production.
