APPLICATIONS:

Nazdar 5500 Retarder Thinner is a solvent-based ink additive formulated for printing on paper and card stock. 5500 Series is a cost-effective ink additive for short term POP displays, posters, serigraphs applications. This Thinner is used to thin screen ink and reduce overall viscosity. Do not over thin as over thinning can result in screen blockage.



INSTRUCTIONS FOR HANDLING & USE:

All personnel mixing and handling these products must wear gloves and eye protection. Clean up spills immediately. If ink does come in contact with skin, wipe ink off with a clean, dry, absorbent cloth (do not use solvent or thinner). Wash the affected area with soap and water. Consult the applicable Safety Data Sheet (SDS / MSDS) for further instructions and warnings. For assistance on a wide range of important regulatory issues, consult the following Regulatory Compliance Department link at http://www.nazdar.com or contact Nazdar Ink Technologies - World Headquarters.


Working Instructions:

Add only enough ink to the screen to be able to print for 5-10 minutes. Add additional ink in small increments throughout the print run to maintain screen stability. Thoroughly mix the ink prior to printing. Improper mixing can lead to inconsistent color and ink performance. Maintain ink temperature at 65°-90°F (18°-32°C) for optimum print and cure performance. Lower temperatures increase the ink viscosity, impairing flow and increasing film thickness. Elevated temperatures lower the ink viscosity, reducing print definition and film thickness. Pretest to determine optimum printing parameters for a particular set of ink, substrate, screen, press, and curing variables/conditions. Nazdar does not recommend inter-mixing of 5500 Series and Nazdar 5550 Retarder Thinner with other inks besides the 5500 Series.


Adhesion Testing:


  • Touch of ink surface – the ink surface should be smooth.

  • Thumb twist – the ink surface should not mar or smudge.

  • Scratch surface – the ink surface should resist scratching.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR STORAGE:

Store closed containers of 5550 Retarder Thinner at temperatures between 65°-78°F (18°-25°C). Ink taken from the press should not be returned to the original container; store separately to avoid contaminating unused ink

 

Cleanup of Nazdar 5550 Retarder Thinner:


  • Screen Wash (Prior to Reclaim): Use IMS201 Premium Graphic Screen Wash, IMS203 Economy Graphic Screen Wash, or IMS206 Graphic Auto Screen Wash.
