Choose the temperature that best fits your substrates and production needs.
It can be confusing and challenging when choosing the right ink for each garment type, including overcoming dye migration and achieving a softer hand-feel. The dyes used in most polyester fabrics can migrate into printed ink surfaces when cured at standard (320F) temperatures, resulting in discolored prints.
TRQ inks are formulated to cure at a lower temperature to minimize the opportunity for dye migration, while also lowering energy consumption, lowering production space temperatures, and preventing shrinkage of heat-sensitive fabrics. But this is an ideal ink as it easily cures 280F to 320F for use on garments that are prone to bleed, as well as cotton and cotton blends without worry about over-curing the ink.
This series offers multiple under-base options including:
Smooth LC HO/LB for faster flashing
Poly Max HO/LB for high bleed substrates
Barrier Grey for dye-sublimated garments.
Rated scale from 1 minimal to 5 maximum or best
Bleed resistance: 4/5
Cotton, cotton blends, polyesters, and some nylon (generally open weave or mesh types) as well as other synthetics.
Gel or flash-cure: Approximately 150 Degrees F
Full cure: 270-320 Degrees F
Fusion tests should be made prior to any production run. Failure to cure properly causes poor wash fastness, inferior adhesion and increased dye migration.
Tension: 25-35 recommended
Squeegee type: 70, 60/90/60 or 70/90/70 durometer.
Squeegee blade: Sharp
Squeegee angle: 10 to 15 degrees
Squeegee Pressure: Avoid excess pressure
Squeegee speed: Medium
Wash-Up: ECO2770 Textile Ink degrader or ECO4400 Press Wipe.
Mesh: Use 86-160 mesh for optimum opacity.
Use 160-305 mesh for overprinting and fine-line printing.
Use 160-305 mesh for printing onto white or light fabrics.
Stencil: CBX7500 is recommended but will work with Any Conventional direct emulsion or capillary films.
Off contact: 1/16"
Emulsion over mesh: 15 - 20%
Avoid direct sunlight
Keep container sealed
Caution: Adding any reducers or additives can lower bleed resistance, opacity, or increase cure times of ink. STIR the ink prior to printing on press and after addition of reducers or additives.
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.
