INSTRUCTIONS FOR HANDLING & USAGE:

Always test print the fabric to be used before beginning production. Wait at least 24 hours, longer if possible. 7113 Performance Pro White is a low fusing (low curing) plastisol. The recommended minimum cure temperature
is 285°F (140° C). Although a minimum of 60 seconds is recommended, the time required for the ink to become completely fused will vary depending on the type of dryer used. It is important to ensure that the ink is completely cured/fused before beginning production. Wash testing is recommended. The use of additives such as stretch or reducers with 7113 Performance Pro White may inhibit the low bleed and/ or low fusing characteristics of this product.

Additional information For International Coatings 7113LF Performance Pro White Ink:
The fact that 7113 Performance Pro White is a low fusing plastisol makes this product extremely sensitive to heat. If ink is left open and exposed to the average room temperature of a typical screen printing production floor for more than 12 hours, its shelf life may be greatly shortened. The tendency will be for this product to thicken or semi-gel if left in a screen or uncovered in the container over several days. For this reason it is vital that all unused ink be returned to the bucket and the lid be completely sealed. It is also important that ink containers be stored in an area of the shop floor that has the lowest temperatures. Following both of these directions will greatly enhance the shelf life of this product.
