For optimal bleed resistance, print Wilflex Epic PolyWhite, the most bleed-resistant white in the Wilflex line. As under base. Set the dryer belt at the highest possible speed while still ensuring that the ink film reaches 300°F (149°C). For an optimal stretch, print Epic Performance White as under base. Set the dryer belt at the highest possible speed while still ensuring that the ink film reaches 290°F (143°C).
Building a thick ink deposit on the polyester substrate provides additional bleed blocking power. To accomplish this. Use the following coating screen method with a wet-on-wet application: 1) Coat print side; 2) Coat squeegee side; 3) Coat print side; 4) Coat squeegee side. Always end coating on the squeegee side to push the emulsion to the print side. Dry screens with the print side facing the floor.
If printing on a hard metal surface, use a palette covering to allow for a softer printing surface. Polyester fabrics are likely to have dye migration issues and may require the use of additional bleed blocker. Such as Epic Performance Underbase Gray. To determine a material's bleed potential. Please reference the testing procedures outlined in the Wilflex User Manual.
