NPT SF-2 LB WHITE

EL9073 NPT SF LB White is opaque resulting in excellent coverage on dark garments. The low tack formula allows printing through finer mesh counts without the need for a viscosity modifier. Use as an underlay where great opacity is needed or as a stand-alone white. Has good low bleed characteristics for printing on polyester/cotton blends. Creamy, short body plastisol for easy printing. Great value and multipurpose low bleed white.

Features:

  • Great opacity with quick flash.
  • High performance white for polyester/cotton blends.
  • Low hot tack.
  • User friendly, no viscosity modifiers necessary.
  • Creamy, short body plastisol for easy printing.
  • Great value low bleed white

Instructions:

Print NPT SF Low Bleed White straight from the container. NPT SF Low Bleed White is user friendly and may be printed through mesh ranging from 86 to 230 mc in (34 to 90 mc cm) without modification of the viscosity. The tack free formula allows increased coverage; therefore use finer mesh counts for the softest hand and good opacity.

*Note to 100% Cotton users: 100% Cotton could have a ghost image appear if printed with low bleed inks. NPT SF Low Bleed White is a low bleed ink and should not be printed on 100% Cotton. NPT SF Low Bleed White is recommended for polyester/cotton blends. 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.
