Rutland Chill Low Cure Cardinal Plastisol Ink LC6398
Rutland Low Cure Colors are designed to print on Cotton, or on Poly blends and Polyester with the appropriate Chill under-base.
Chill colors are vibrant and bold with a matte finish. These inks demonstrate amazing printability on both manual and automatic presses. This ink series is suitable for wet-on-wet printing dependent on art separation and screen imaging quality.
Rutland™ Chill™ flexible-curing inks are ready-for-use screen printing inks that cure as low as 270°F or up to 320°F. This series consists of 17 bright, easy-to-print, ready-for-use colors*; an under-base bleed-blocking barrier ink, a mixing base, and 3 white inks that can be printed alone or as an underbase; and an extender base designed for white or light-colored fabrics.
This premium flexible cure system produces a contemporary soft hand with a matte finish. Rutland Chill inks are a terrific fit for manual and automatic presses in shops of varying sizes. This extensive system delivers vibrant, rich colors direct to cotton and onto most cotton blends, benefiting from a lower cure to minimize the risk of dye migration appearing in your print. For more unstable polyester blends, and sublimated and 100% polyester garments, printers can use the grey dye-blocking barrier. This bleed blocker is recommended for when problem fabrics prove to be too challenging for the Rutland Chill LC LB Tidy White or the Rutland Chill Poly White.
- Excellent stretch and soft-hand feel
- Vibrant and opaque colors
- Non-migrating pigments produce crisp edge definition designs
- Wide temperature curing profile, from 270°F/132°C to 320°F/160°C
- Reduces energy consumption and lowers shop temperatures
- Great printability and wet-on-wet capabilities on manual or automatic presses
- For printing on cotton: Print direct or over a cotton white underbase. For Blends or Poly, print over the appropriate Chill under base.
- For sublimated and/or migration-prone polyester fabrics, use the Rutland Low Cure Barrier Gray as a base layer to achieve maximum bleed resistance.
- Use 86–230t/in (34-90t/cm) mesh screens for best performance and opacity.
- Adjust flash cure temperature and dwell time so ink is just dry to touch but tacky. Avoid excessive flash temperatures to protect fabric and migration of dyes. Depending on flash unit, a 3 - 5 second flash is adequate.
- Test all prints for color fastness and print durability before starting.
- Curing is a time and temperature process. Using a lower temperature, at a lower belt speed will provide the best result without damaging the fabric. Lower cure does not mean you can increase belt speed. Ink still needs time to cure. 60 second dwell time/6-8 seconds at Cure temp.
- Add up to 10% of LC0000 Chill Relax Extender to extend the LC colors and whites.
