NPT SUPER GEL CLEAR

ES0280 NPT Super Gel is formulated as a plastisol for printing on 100% Cotton fabrics or over a low bleed underlay on poly/cotton. This product has excellent edge definition when stacked for that 3D look and provides maximum gloss when fully cured. Fast shearing action means higher press speeds. Can be tinted with up to 30% C3 Color Boosters to make Gel Colors. High gloss and clarity when printed in thick film and cured properly.

Instructions:

Print ES0280 directly onto substrates or over an underlay. ES0280 is normally printed through mesh ranges from 86-110 mc in (34-43 mc cm). You may print through finer mesh to achieve fine details with less height. Recommend 60 Durometer squeegee and thick film emulsion for superior edge definition when stacking. For higher gloss, cure at slightly higher temperature for longer times.

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. 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 test positive for the restricted phthalates.
