NPT GEL CLEAR

EG0290 is formulated as a plastisol for printing on 100% Cotton fabrics. This product has excellent clarity and gloss when printing as a 3D type gel. It gives flowing rounded edges with no appearance of screen marks. It can be thickened with M00004 Liquid Thickener to produce the more traditional Gel with sharper edges. Short body and very low wet tack for easy printing. Fast shearing action means higher press speeds. Can be tinted with up to 30% Color Boosters to make Gel Colors. High gloss when cured under standard conditions.

Features:

  • Non-Phthalate formulation to comply with new regulations restricting phthalates.

Instructions:

Print EG0290 directly onto substrates or over an underlay. It is normally printed through mesh ranges from 86-110 mc. in. (34-43 mc. cm.). Recommend 60 Durometer squeegee and thick film emulsion for printing a 3D image.

Recommendation:

Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image.
