The 900 Series Nylon Ink must be mixed with the 900 Catalyst before printing on Nylon. Catalyst is available in 2 ounce, 8 ounce, and 1 gallon containers and must be purchased separately. The catalyst helps the ink adhere better to hard-to-print fabrics such as nylon. However, there are also other uses such as adding catalyst to our 3820 Flock Adhesive to promote better adhesion of the flocking fibers.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR HANDLING & USAGE:
Ink may be used immediately after mixing. Do not mix more ink than is needed for a job. Do not under-catalyze the ink with International Coatings 900 Series Catalyst. Pot life of mixed ink is 4 to 8 hours. Over-catalyzation will shorten the pot life. If printing on cotton, it is not necessary to catalyze the ink with International Coatings 900 Series Catalyst.
