Rutland Chill Low Cure Poly White Plastisol Ink LC9800
LC9800 Chill LC Poly White is a flexible temperature cure ink for 100% poly fabrics.
When printing on fabrics that exhibit unstable dyes, this ink allows you to drop the cure temperature as low as 270°F/132°C offering you better dye migration control and lowering energy consumption costs. Chill Poly White shears down to a very creamy body and produces a bright, opaque, matte finish with soft hand and terrific fiber control.
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, 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.
- Lower cure temperatures allow for better control on fabrics that may shrink or distort under higher temperatures
- Supple hand and excellent elasticity
- Stable finish even at higher cure temps, this ink does not "puff" or swell as much as competitive products
- High opacity on darker fabrics facilitating non-migrating pigments
- Energy savings and cooler operating temperatures
- Excellent bleed resistance
- Adjust flash cure temperature and dwell time so ink is just dry to touch. Avoid excessive flash temperatures to protect fabric and migration of dyes. Depending on flash unit, a 3 - 5 second flash is adequate
- For best results, use a print-flash-print technique to ensure sufficient ink deposit on dark fabrics.
- Use 86–230t/in (34-90t/cm) mesh screens with high tension for best performance, ink release and opacity. Lower mesh equals more deposit. Use higher meshes to achieve half tones.
- Adjust your print parameters to allow this ink to clear fully on the second stroke using medium to low pressure for best dye blocking and opacity. As this ink shears down, less pressure will be required. Adjust accordingly.
- 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.
- A behavior for high-opacity low cure inks is to "body-up" or gain viscosity when at rest. Be sure to "Pre-shear" or agitate this ink before use to achieve optimal flow before printing. Be careful to not use high speed drills or similar equipment that will create friction-heat that can cause the ink to begin to cure. Store ink buckets up off of cold floors to reduce pre-shear time.
- Add up to 10% of LC0000 Chill Relax Extender to extend the LC colors and whites.
