EKO LB WHITE

Is a PVC and phthalate-free plastisol textile white ink belonging to the EKO series. This product was formulated to print on polyester-cotton fabrics where migration or dye transfer from the fabric to the print occurs. Note: 100% Polyester requires the use of RS0944 Barrier Black under base. The use of this product controls migration problems but will not eliminate it entirely. We recommend the user to carry out all relevant tests to ensure that desired results are achieved. In some cases, migration could take many days to occur. In all cases, effectiveness cannot be guaranteed. Discoloration or ghosting could appear in some fabrics (It’s recommended to perform tests prior to printing). Reduces colorant migration of the fabric to the print. Good tensile strength, stretchability, and wash resistance. Does not dry on the screen. .

Features:

  • Passes all requirements for major brand RSL and government regulations.
  • No PVC, no lead, no phthalates, no formaldehyde, no APEO's

Instructions:

On 100% Polyester: Apply one layer of EKO Barrier Black, flash; then, apply 2 layers of EKO LB White and cure. Poly cotton requires print-flash-print-flash and then apply the top color.

Recommendation:

Dye migration from the fabric might occur several days after printed. Due to the great diversity of existing fibers, we can't guarantee its effectiveness in all cases. We recommend to use a stencil with a well-tense mesh (minimum 20 N/cm) to achieve optimal results. Do not iron the printed area, do not dry-clean.
