NPT FF LB Tidy White exhibits a brilliant whiteness, has a soft, creamy consistency that is very easy to print, but also has a very high opacity. It is excellent for printing on most substrates, such as 50/50 cotton polyester blend, 100% cotton and fleece fabrics. The product has good flash time and that incredible “whiteness”.Instructions:
Screen meshes in the range of 83-160 MCI (32-62 MC cm) are recommended for best opacity. NPT FF LB Tidy White will print through up to a 305 MCI (120 MC cm) with excellent opacity. Use just enough squeegee pressure to deposit the ink on the surface of the shirt. Try not to drive the ink into the fabric. Squeegees in the 70 durometer range with a sharp edge,work well.
Substrates: NPT FF LB Tidy White is designed to provide maximum opacity on dark fabrics, 100% cotton or cotton/poly blends.
Note: NPT FF LB Tidy White should be tested on the production fabric to insure bleed resistance prior to printing production runs.
Modifiers: NPT FF LB Tidy White is a ready-to-print ink. Modification is not necessary unless you're trying to achieve a special effect or use. Any extenders will affect opacity.
NPT FF LB Tidy White has excellent shelf life and, with cool storage, will maintain its creamy consistency.
Flashing: Depending on your flash unit, NPT FF LB Tidy White will flash in 3 seconds depending on the power and type of flash cure unit used.
Curing: Cure at 325°F (162°C) over a 60-90 second period, depending on oven type and thickness of ink deposit. A thicker deposit will take longer to cure as the heat must penetrate through the entire ink layer.
Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image.Statement:
