ENDURANCE PLUS BLACK

EL8209 Endurance Plus Black is a press-ready non-phthalate black plastisol ink with great bleed resistance and a wide cure temperature range for printing on 100% Polyester Performance fabrics. For fabrics with severe migration, use EL0755 Endurance Plus Barrier Grey as an underlay. The combination of the two give the best migration resistance. Endurance Plus Black and Endurance Plus Barrier Grey have a cure temperature range from 280°F (138°C) to 300° F (149°C) while still blocking dye migration on most 100% Polyester fabrics. EL0209 Endurance Plus Mixing Base can be used with Rutland’s C3 Color Boosters to create desired low temperature colors. Formulations are available in the RGCC Color Mixing Software. Mixed colors would be printed over the Barrier Grey/White layer for the most brilliant prints.

Features:

  • Low temperature cure from 280°F (138°C) to 300° F (149°C).
  • Smooth athletic surface on cured print.
  • Superior bleed resistance for printing on 100% polyester performance fabrics.
  • Complies as a non-phthalate and no lead product as defined by CPSC

Instructions:

Print EL9755 Endurance Plus Black over EL0755 Endurance Plus Barrier Grey or directly onto 100% Polyester substrates where applicable. Endurance Plus inks print well through mesh ranges from 86-156 mc in. (34-62 mc CM.) Recommend 70-80 Durometer squeegee with sharp edge for maximum print definition. NOTE: Poorly dyed polyester or too much heat in the curing process can overcome any low bleed inks ability to block dye migration. For severe migration use EL0755 Endurance Plus Barrier Grey as an underlay. Printers should always test the ink on their fabric under their process conditions before printing production runs.

Recommendation:

Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image.
