Direct printing on light or dark garments. Stencils: Use any direct emulsion or capillary film.
Additives: Shimmer Metallic inks are supplied ready to print Reducer/Detackifier (PLRE-9000) may be added if a thinner consistency is required.
Curing: These inks will cure at 300 F (149 C.). Because of the reflective nature of this ink, it requires a longer curing time under the heat to reach the required temperature than standard plastisols.
Caution: Always test this product for curing, adhesion, crocking, opacity, washability and other specific requirements before using in production.
