NPT THERM-O-LINE CLEAR

ES0026 NPT ThermoLine Clear is a non-phthalate plastisol used for adhesive type applications and as a clear base for Metallic powders and flakes.

Instructions:

C3 Color Boosters may be added to the NPT ThermoLine Clear for custom colors at a maximum of 30% by weight. The thicker the ink film deposit, the less pigment needed to maintain color intensity. As a Flock Adhesive: ES0026 is also used as an adhesive for applying flock to textile fabric. We suggest adding up to 5% NPT Fiberbond for maximum adhesion to flock fibers and print through 200- micron stencil for this application. Note: The mixture with FiberBond will have maximum 8 hours shelf life. Creating a thick stencil: Creating a thick stencil (200 micron) will offer maximum ink deposit. The thickness of the stencil will determine the thickness of the ink deposit. Thicker stencils will require an increase in exposure time. Contact emulsion supplier for more detail information.

Recommendation:

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