IC LB Crystalina Shimmer Plastisol Ink - 5 Gallon
IC LB Crystalina Shimmer provides a bright, non-tarnishing metallic sparkle to printed garments.
The inks consist of a fine, shimmering glitter flake in a low bleed clear, low fusion, easy to print base. This is a real plus for hand and automatic printers, when it comes to wear and tear on people and equipment.
Screens must be coated with a plastisol or hybrid emulsion. Post-hardening the stencil is recommended for long print runs. If using with a pigment system, mix in pigment at the desired shade or level. 1-10% is normal for standard pigments and up to 20% for fluorescent pigments. Inks may be thinned with Curable Reducer, if a lower viscosity is required, up to 10% max.
Can be printed wet-on-wet without flash curing or flashed and stacked on top of itself or an under base. Degree of color/wash fastness is dependent on proper curing.
61 Max Mesh due to the particulate in the shimmer.
60-80 Durometer. Can also use 70/90/70 triple durometer squeegees. Typically heavy squeegee pressure is preferred.
Use RXP, HiFi, CryoCoat or any standard plastisol emulsion.
Plastisol screen wash such as Sgreen Supreme or Ryonet Industrial Press Wash.
