General Info: 

  • All Purpose (AP) inks are formulated to be directly printed onto white or light colored, 100% cotton garments. AP inks can also be used on dark colored garments if an underlay is used; this is the suggested method for dark colored shirts to achieve a soft hand.
  • Bleed Resistance: None
  • Opacity: Low to Medium
  • Storage: Ideally 65 to 80 F. Keep out of direct sunlight.
  • Mesh: 110-305 (43 to 120 threads per cm)
  • Stencil: Any direct emulsion or capillary film.
  • Wet on Wet Printing: Can be printed wet-on-wet to increase production
  • Squeegee Hardness & Angle: Medium to hard at a 45 degree angle.
  • Flashing: 700ºF for 3-5 seconds, just enough for the surface to be tack free.
  • Squeegee Blade: Sharp.
  • Fusion/Curing: 325 F/163 C for 1 to 1 ½ minutes. Oven temperature can be increased and dwell time decreased. For heat presses use 390 F/195 C for 8 seconds.
  • Wash-up: Any plastisol cleaner.
  • Special Notes: PVC inks are thermoplastic compounds that require heat to fuse or cure. If ink rubs off on a white cloth or cracks, temperature and/or dwell time should be increased. Do not dry clean and always test on fabric to be printed.
