NPT HO LOW BLEED WHITE

EL9074 NPT HO LB White is formulated as a press-ready non-phthalate low bleed plastisol white for printing on Cotton (pre-test potential to Ghost) and Poly/Cotton blends. NPT HO LB White has good dye migration resistance. For severe bleeding fabrics we suggest ES0266 Barrier Base (Grey) or EL9746 NPT Super Poly White as an under base for maximum protection against dye migration.

Features:

  • Short body for easy printing.
  • Fast shearing action means higher press speeds.
  • Good low bleed for printing on Cotton and Poly/Cotton Blends
  • Multipurpose low bleed White
  • Matte Finish.

Instructions:

Print directly onto Poly/Cotton substrates. NPT HO LB White is normally printed through mesh ranges from 86-230 mc in. (34-90 mc. CM.) Recommend 70-80 Durometer squeegee with sharp edge for maximum definition. Proper cure is achieved when garment reaches 320ºF (160°C.). NOTE: Poorly dyed polyester or too much heat in the curing process can overcome any low bleed inks ability to block the migration. For severe migration use ES0266 Barrier Base as an underlay.

Recommendation:

Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image.
There may be potential to ghost on some fabrics due to the dyes used. Thoroughly pre-test this product on light colored or stone washed garments. Avoid conditions that may increase potential to ghost such as stacking printed garments while hot. Due to variations in garments and dyes used, always test for your use conditions.
