Printing Tips for PolyOne Wilflex 11480PFW EPIC Bright Tiger:

Perform fusion tests before production. Failure to cure ink properly may result in poor wash fastness, inferior adhesion and unacceptable durability. Ink flash and cure temperatures should be measured using a Thermoprobe placed directly in the wet ink film and verified on the production run substrate(s) and production equipment. It is the responsibility of the printer to determine that the correct ink has been selected for a specific substrate and the application processes meet your customer’s standards or specifications. Pre-test all fabrics for dye migration. Some fabric dyes may cause ghosting effect, properly test. fAvoid over flashing as it can result in poor intercoat adhesion of colors.

Do not dry clean, bleach or iron printed area.
