Discharge Agent is the activating component for discharge printing. This agent must be used in combination with the DSPS Discharge Binder/Base in order for discharging to take place. Discharge Agent comes in a crystal/powder form and is sold and shipped by the pound.



To activate discharge, mix agent into discharge at about 4-6% of the discharge binder/base. Discharge Agent has an unpleasant odor and should be handled carefully in its crystal form then blended into the ink by a properly trained employee. Always blend the agent slowly until it is well mixed in the ink to prevent dust, the agent is relatively safe once in solution.



We recommend using a gram scale for optimal mixing performance.*Not compatible with Matsui pigment must use Ryonet Discharge Base
Preparation

Screens must be coated with a water based 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.



Application

Print wet-on-wet without flash curing. Degree of color/wash fastness is dependent on proper curing. Add Water Base and Discharge Reducer/Retarder up to 5% to prevent drying in the screen.



Mesh

110 to 305t/in The mesh count being used will determine how much squeegee pressure should be used.



Squeegee

60-80 Durometer. Can also use 70/90/70 triple durometer squeegees. Typically heavy squeegee pressure is preferred.



Emulsion

Use WBP or any standard water based emulsion.



Cure Instructions

The printed fabric should be cured for a minimum of 90 seconds at 320 degrees F. Ideally, the printed fabric should be cured for 2-3 minutes at 340-350 degrees F.

General wash-up, on ink that has not dried up, can be done with water. EnviroSolv is recommended as an on-press cleaner and screen opener.
