International Coatings 1099 Lo-Bleed Curable Reducer
Lo-Bleed reducer will lower the viscosity of both HP and standard opacity plastisol inks.
1099 Lo-Bleed reducer will lower the viscosity of both HP and standard opacity plastisol inks. While 1099 reducer can be used in most standard plastisol inks, it is highly recommended for use in Lo-Bleed inks as the 1099 will not affect the bleed resistance or fusing characteristics of those type inks. This product is non-phthalate.
When adding reducers to any plastisol ink, be careful to use a minimal amount of reducer to help maintain opacity. The recommended amount of 1099 to use is 1% to 5% by weight.
Products that are designated as curable reducers will fuse or cure by themselves with the application of proper heat and time. The use of a curable reducer is highly recommended for general use when adjusting the viscosity of plastisol inks because these curable reducers and modifiers can fuse or cure by themselves with the proper application of heat and time. This means that if too much of the curable reducer or curable modifier is added, the mixed ink will still fuse or cure.
The more curable reducer or curable modifier added, the more the opacity of the mixed product will be lowered.
Match the reducer being used with the characteristics of of the ink being modified. Ex: LO-Bleed Reducer with Low Bleed Inks.
