NPT SNAP WHITE

EL9240 NPT Snap White is formulated as low bleed, press-ready plastisol for printing on Cotton (pre-test potential to ghost) and polyester/cotton fabrics. This product is excellent for printing through a variety of mesh ranges to give great opacity and smooth finish. Creamy, short body plastisol for easy printing. Tack free formulation for fast shearing action. Fast flash, first down white with low after tack. Optically brightened to produce superior whiteness and opacity.

Features:

  • Fast flashing.
  • Creamy plastisol for easy printing.
  • Low tack formulation for fast shearing action.
  • Multipurpose low bleed White

Instructions:

Print EL9240 directly onto 50/50 substrates to obtain ultimate opacity and bleed resistance. EL9240 may be applied as an underlay white when printed through mesh ranges from 86-230 mc./in. (34-90 mc./cm.) to achieve very fine details and halftones, or can be printed as a stand alone white for maximum whiteness. The quick flash characteristics of this product allow it to function either way. 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. EL9240 NPT Snap White is recommended for cotton (pre-test the potential to ghost) and polyester/cotton blends.

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.
