INSTRUCTIONS FOR HANDLING & USE
When handling Chromaline TexTac be sure to use good safety and industrial hygiene practices. Chromaline TexTac can be used as an adhesive alone.
When applying the Chromaline TexTac you can manually use the adhesive with a card, paint-brush or spray bottle. It is recommended that you use air assisted spray units for fine, even coatings. You can also apply pallet tape to a clean surface; as it will avoid the necessity of having to scrub Chromaline TexTac from the pallet. For shirt printing, only use a thin layer of Chromaline TexTac if necessary, however, a thicker layer will be required for fleece, sweatshirts, towels, or other high lint materials.
Chromaline TexTac can be air-dried; accelerated drying will occur if it is under a flash unit for 20 seconds. Remember that a heavier coat of adhesive will increase tack strength and dry times. When you have completed the drying stage, Chromaline TexTac will turn clear.
A damp sponge can be used to remove lint and re-tackify the Chromaline TexTac when lint build-up diminishes. When you are reapplying, make sure to allow your Chromaline TexTac to dry. If it does not dry or bond to pallet, the adhesive may transfer to the garment. If you have reached 200 up to 400 impressions with your Chromaline TexTac, retacking may not be a necessary measure.
Methods & Material for Containment & Cleanup:
When cleaning up Chromaline TexTac use the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment and be sure to contain and/or absorb the spill with inert material (such as sand or vermiculite), then place it in a suitable container.
For the cleanup process of Chromaline TexTac, first use hot water mixed with image mate Degreaser 260. This can help clean up pallets, equipment and floors. However, pallet paper will eliminate the need for pallet cleaning. For stubborn areas, acetone may have to be used.
Accidental Release Measures:
If your Chromaline TexTac spills during use or storage, do not touch or walk through the adhesive and ventilate the enclosed areas. Use normal clean up procedures if the material is used under ordinary conditions as recommended.
For large spills of Chromaline TexTac that could be an environmental precaution, prevent entry into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas.
