• Rutland™ Low Cure inks are low bleed inks that can cure at a temperature as low as 270°F (132°C). They deliver great bleed resistance, allowing a direct-to-fabric print.
  • Wide cure temperature range from 270°F (132°C) to 320°F (160°C)
  • Excellent stretch properties
  • Direct-to-fabric printing with great bleed resistance
  • Non-migrating pigments
  • Soft hand
  • Compatible with manual and automatic presses


Use 86–230t (34-90t/cm) mesh screens for best performance and opacity. For best results, use a print-flash-print technique to ensure sufficient ink deposit on dark fabrics. For challenging polyester fabrics, use Rutland™ Low Cure Barrier Gray or Barrier Black as a base layer to achieve maximum bleed resistance. Adjust flash cure temperature and dwell time so ink is just dry to touch. Avoid excessive flash temperatures to protect fabric and migration of dyes. Depending on flash unit, a 3 - 5 second flash is adequate.

Test all prints for color fastness and print durability before starting.
