PolyOne Wilflex 11888PFX MX EPIC PF Mixing White Ink is specially formulated with non-phthalate plasticizers. It is an easy-to-use, easy-to-mix color mixing system with 17 intermixable colors that enable printers to produce PANTONE® simulations. Epic MX inks are suitable for high production, wet-on-wet printing, offering a matte finish and excellent crock resistance.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR HANDLING & USAGE:
When blended according to formulations, colors will vary in opacity from translucent to semi-opaque. Colors will reproduce best on white or light grounds. For cotton fabrics, underbase with 11335PFW Epic Sprint White. For bleed resistance, use an underbase white such as 11835PFW Epic Quick White, 11117PFW Epic Polywhite, or 11195PFW Epic Athletic LB White.
Printing Tips for PolyOne Wilflex 11888PFX MX EPIC PF Mixing White Ink:
Perform fusion tests before production. Failure to cure ink properly may result in poor wash fastness, inferior adhesion and unacceptable durability. Ink gel 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. For consistency, all formulas provided were printed through 156 t/in (62 t/cm) mesh screen on white, 100% cotton fabric for color approval. Wilflex EPIC Mixing Inks can, however, be printed through a range of meshes between 110-305 t/in (43-120 t/cm). Variation in screen mesh and ink deposit can result in variation in depth of color and opacity. Reducing viscosity will adversely affect opacity. fAvoid over flashing as it can result in poor intercoat adhesion of colors. fStir plastisols before printing. Do not dry clean, bleach or iron printed area
Non Contamination of PolyOne Wilflex 11888PFX MX EPIC PF Mixing White Ink:
Do not add or mix non-Epic inks, additives or extenders with Epic inks. All buckets, palette knives, stirring apparatus, squeegees, flood bars and screens must be cleaned properly and free of phthalates and pvc containing inks. Non-phthalate emulsions and pallet adhesives must be used. Failure to follow these precautions may cause phthalate contamination in violation of consumer protection laws and regulations.
