NPT WHITE FLOCKING COMPOUND

ES9073 NPT White Flocking Compound is a press-ready plastisol for printing paper substrates where a flock image is desired. Plastisol prevents paper from distorting due to moisture and provides maximum adhesion to the paper and the flock fibers.Viscosity: 18,000-20,000 cps. Measured on a Brookfield ViscometerSpindle-#7Temperature-75° F. (24° C.)Note: Hand stir for 3 min. prior to checking viscosity.

Instructions:

C3 Color Booster primary colors may be added to the ES9073 for custom colors at a maximum of 10% by weight. This will allow for pastel and medium color ranges. ES9073 is applied by printing through a 86-110 mc in (34-42 mc cm) using a sharp squeegee. After flock is applied to wet plastisol, proceed into heat chamber to reach a temperature of 310° to 320° F. (154° to 160° C.) As product cools, the adhesion to the paper is maximized. Recommended Printing Techniques - Examine the flood bar and smooth edges if necessary. - Adjust the flood to just transfer the ink from the front to the back of the screen. - Transfer ink to the fabric surface with a light squeegee pass using just enough pressure to clear the mesh.

Recommendation:

Plastisols are THERMOPLASTIC, requiring heat for fusion. Stir product before use.
