Printing Tips for PolyOne Wilflex 11835PFW EPIC Quick White Ink:
Stir plastisols before printing. Do not dry clean, bleach or iron printed area. Perform fusion tests before production. Failure to cure ink properly can result in poor wash fastness, inferior adhesion and unacceptable durability. Gel and cure temperatures for ink should be measured using a Thermoprobe device placed directly in the wet ink film and verified on the substrate(s) and equipment to be used for production. 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 the printer’s customer standards or specifications. Curing is the responsibility of each printer to confirm that the print is fully cured. PolyOne’s cure recommendations are not a guarantee or warranty, but merely suggested starting points for curing evaluations as explained above. When printing on garments that contain certain dyes, you must pre-test for the potential of ghosting. Please refer to our website for more information on this issue. Wilflex products have been carefully designed to perform within a given viscosity range, and any dramatic change in viscosity is probable to result in a change in printing characteristics.
Non Contamination of PolyOne Wilflex 11835PFW EPIC Quick White Ink:

All buckets, palette knives, stirring apparatus, squeegees, flood bars and screens must be cleaned properly and free of phthalates and pvc containing inks.
