General Usage

Some advice on using crosslinkers and regulators for water-based inks

We have a range of products that work with our water-based bases, the following are suitable for use with the S Series of bases:

· Add 1-3% PTF Thickener to get the viscosity and consistency you want for your process, if you want to use a brush with stencils.

· If you are using emulsion and have developed your screen, you can add up to 5% D-40 retarder which will help prevent drying in the screen during production or downtime.

· Add 1%-3% FFB57 Crosslinker to aid curing. This product improves dry/wet rubbing and wash fastness.

· Add 0.5% -3% A25 Fixator to achieve air-curing simply by hanging the fabric or garment up for 24 hours. NOTE: Make sure you only add A25 Fixator to the exact amount you need for the day, the ink will no longer be usable in 24 hours.

· All textile inks achieve optimum results if heat cured, although drying with a heat press, dry iron on the reverse of the fabric or by using a hair dryer will achieve good results for small volume or home production.
