POLY ICE LC HO/LB is a flexible temperature cure ink for 100% poly and Poly Blend fabrics. When printing on fabrics that exhibit unstable dyes, this ink allows you to drop the cure temperature as low as 270F to 320F offering you better dye migration control and lowering energy consumption costs.  

POLY ICE Colors shears down to a very creamy body and produces a bright, opaque, matte finish with soft hand and terrific fiber control. 


  • Lower cure temperatures allow for better control on fabrics that may shrink or distort under higher temperatures
  • Supple hand and excellent elasticity
  • Stable finish even at higher cure temps, this ink does not "puff" or swell as much as competitive products
  • High opacity on darker fabrics facilitates non-migrating pigments
  • Energy savings and cooler operating temperatures
  • Excellent bleed resistance

Printing Tips

Adjust flash cure temperature and dwell time so ink is just dry to touch. Avoid excessive flash temperatures to protect fabric and migration of dyes. Depending on flash unit, a 3 - 5 second flash is adequate.

For best results, use a print-flash-print technique to ensure sufficient ink deposit on dark fabrics.

Use 86–230t/in (34-90t/cm) mesh screens with high tension for best performance, ink release and opacity. Lower mesh equals more deposit. Use higher meshes to achieve half tones.

Adjust your print parameters to allow this ink to clear fully on the second stroke using medium to low pressure for best dye blocking and opacity. As this ink shears down, less pressure will be required. Adjust accordingly.

Curing is a time and temperature process. Using a lower temperature, at a lower belt speed will provide the best result without damaging the fabric.

A behavior for high-opacity low cure inks is to "body-up" or gain viscosity when at rest. Be sure to "Pre-shear" or agitate this ink before use to achieve optimal flow before printing. Be careful to not use highspeed drills or similar equipment that will create friction-heat that can cause the ink to begin to cure. Store ink buckets up off of cold floors to reduce pre-shear time.

For the best coverage, bleed resistance and brightest prints, adjust the off contact distance and squeegee pressure to print the ink layer on top of the printed fabric rather than pushing the ink entirely through it.

This ink is most effective with thicker screen stencils. Take care to not "over-flash" this or any plastisol ink. Flash to gel just short of cure to ensure inter-coat adhesion.

Dyed Poly fabrics become unstable around 230° F, be sure to cool down garment quickly after successful cure is reached.

Avoid "hot stacking" printed poly garments coming off the dryer belt. This will help stabilize the shirt pigment.

Poly garments that are allowed to remain warm after exiting the dryer are more susceptible to dye migration.
