NPT BARRIER BASE

ES0266 NPT Barrier Base is a high opaque, low bleed under base that has been formulated for maximum opacity and excellent bleed resistance on 100% Polyester. Testing of this product has been very successful on various fabrics to include 100% Polyester Jerseys, 100% Polyester Performance fabrics, Rotary Screen printed goods, Sublimated prints, and works to block fabric color migration when printing a clear top coat over a white. ES0266 NPT Barrier Base prints with a satin finish and is grey in color similar to Pantone 430 C.

Features:

  • High performance under base for 100% Polyester.
  • Creamy, short body plastisol for easy printing.
  • User friendly, no viscosity modifications necessary.
  • Superior low bleed properties.
  • Low tack formulation for fast shearing action.

Instructions:

Print Barrier Base straight from the container. Barrier Base is user friendly and may be printed through 86-110 mc in (34 - 43 mc cm) mesh range without modifying the viscosity. Print Rutland’s standard White inks on top to have a brilliant White print! Use softer squeegee or thicker emulsion on both the the Barrier base and White screen to insure complete coverage and maximum low bleed properties. A thicker layer of Barrier Base is suggested for severe bleeding fabrics. NOTE: Due to variations in dyed polyesters, any application whether referenced or not in this technical data should be pre-tested for suitability on the actual production fabric and/or consultation sought with Rutland’s Applications Laboratory prior to printing.

Recommendation:

Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image. Claira Colors™, bases, modifiers and additives should be mixed in clean vessels using clean mixer blades and utensils. Any contamination from other ink sources or non approved additives could make Claira Colors™ test positive for the restricted phthalates.
