NPT CRYSTALINA

ES0008 NPT Crystalina is a press-ready sparkle plastisol used for creating specialty effects when screen printing on textiles.

Features:

  • Low tack formulation for fast shearing action.
  • Non-Phthalate formulation to comply with new regulations restricting phthalates.
  • Brilliant metallic sparkle ink.
  • Creamy, short body plastisol for easy printing.

Instructions:

Print NPT Crystalina through a 40T mc in (16 mc cm) mesh screen as a sparkle, or create colored sparkle by shading with single pigment primaries from the M3 or C3 color matching systems. Create different shades using (2% by weight) C3 Color Boosters May be printed over puff white as a top coat or over white underlays when printing on dark fabric. NPT Crystalina may also be applied as a cold peel transfer. When using as a transfer, print through a 40T mc in (16 mc cm) mesh, gel at 200ºF (94º C.) and transfer at 350ºF (177ºC.) to 375ºF (191º C.) for 8 to 10 seconds. Peel cold. Refer to technical literature provided by paper manufacturers regarding the correct papers to use for cold peel and specialty products. Caution: Avoid over printing colors formulated with the 4449 yellow used in Rutland mixing systems as some color migration could result.

Recommendation:

Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image. Note: This is not a low bleed ink. Do not print on polyester fabrics. 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.
