Printing Tips for PolyOne Wilflex 10340PFXFSB EPIC Fashion Soft Base:
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. Pre-test all fabrics for desired properties before beginning production printing. Adjust the time and temperature settings for the flash station and dryer to reach minimal ink gel and full cure temperatures respectively. fStir plastisols before printing. Do not dry clean, bleach or iron printed area.
Non Contamination of PolyOne Wilflex 10340PFXFSB EPIC Fashion Soft Base:
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.
