NPT SPONGE PUFF BASE

ES0137 NPT Sponge Puff was developed as a soft hand puff product for creating a soft, more durable puff print.Press ready plastisol for printing on dark 100% cotton and over a low bleed under lay.Colors created by using C3 Color Boosters at up to 50%.

Features:

  • Creamy plastisol for easy printing.
  • Low tack formulation for fast shearing action.
  • Non-Phthalate formulation to comply with new regulations restricting phthalates.

Instructions:

Print ES0137 on 100% Cotton, as a mixed color, or over a low bleed underlay white for poly/cotton. For best results print NPT Sponge Puff through a 60 mc in (24 mc cm) mesh count. Finer mesh counts may be used when printing on top of other inks, such as High Density, to give a soft puff finish. *Note to 100% Cotton users: 100% Cotton could have a ghost image appear if printed with this ES0137. Test the particular color garment prior to printing production run to insure this product will not cause a ghost on your garment. See Test Procedures at https://www.rutlandinc.com/screen/techbulletins.

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.
