ES0000 NPT Ultra Soft Primer Clear is designed to simplify stocking of multiple base plastisols. It functions as a multi-purpose product that gives you the ability to make subdued, soft hand colors on dark garments and extremely bright soft hand colors on lights. NPT Ultra soft Primer Clear is not a low bleed plastisol; therefore, it is not recommended for use on polyester/cotton dark fabrics.Mix with M3 colors to reduce opacity and increase color clarity for light color garments.Mix with high tack plastisols to reduce tack and increase flow.Use as a “lint catcher”, in the first position for un-interrupted production runs when printing on dark 100% cotton.Excellent penetration into fiber when printing with fine mesh.


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


• Extender Base (reduce opacity and increase color clarity) Mix with opaque colors to reduce cost, opacity and increase color clarity. Extending colors also increases ink volume and decreases cost. • Curable thinner (reduce viscosity, increase flow) Mix with other NPT plastisol colors to reduce viscosity and allow ink to flow into the mesh opening. • Lint Catcher for dark fabrics (uninterrupted production) Create a single clear plate by combining all colors in an image to be printed on a dark 100% cotton fabric. Print Primer Clear (230 mc in (90 mc cm) or higher mesh and then flash. Follow with all other colors in the design. ES0000 primes the fiber by pre-wetting prior to the application of the white underlay. Much of the lint that is normally attracted to the back of the white screen is picked up on the back of the primer clear screen, which allows for un-interrupted production runs. • Overcoat Clear to reduce fibrillation Create a single clear plate by combining all colors in an image to be printed on 100% cotton. Print all colors, flash, then print NPT Ultra Soft Primer Clear (230 mc in (90 mc cm) over the top to seal fibers, reducing the amount of fibrillation seen after wash and dry cycles. Note: Avoid over printing colors formulated with the 4449 yellow used in Rutland mixing systems as some color migration could result.


Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image. Note: This is not a low bleed ink. Do not print on polyester fabrics.
