Color Range EL9240 NPT Snap
Substrate Type Polyester/Cotton
Substrate Color(s) Light, Medium &
EL9240 NPT Snap White is formulated as low bleed, press-ready plastisol for printing on polyester/cotton
fabrics. This product is excellent for printing through a variety of mesh ranges to give great opacity and
• Creamy, short body plastisol for easy printing.
• Tack free formulation for fast shearing action.
• Great bleed resistance.
• Prints through a range of mesh counts.
• Fast flash, first down white with low after tack.
• Optically brightened to produce superior whiteness and opacity
• Non-Phthalate formulation to comply with new regulations restricting phthalates.
Print EL9240 directly onto 50/50 substrates to obtain ultimate opacity and bleed resistance. EL9240
may be applied as an underlay white when printed through mesh ranges from 86-230 mc./in. (34-90
mc./cm.) to achieve very fine details like simulated halftones, or can be printed as a stand alone white
for maximum whiteness. The quick flash characteristics of this product allow it to function either way.
NOTE: Poorly dyed polyester or too much heat in the curing process can overcome any low bleed inks
ability to block the migration. For severe migration use ES0266 Barrier Base as an underlay.
*Note to 100% Cotton users: 100% Cotton could have a ghost image appear if printed with
low bleed inks. EL9240 NPT Snap White is a low bleed ink and should not be printed on 100%
Cotton. EL9240 NPT Snap White is recommended for polyester/cotton blends.
• Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image.
Claira Colors™, bases, modifiers and additives should be mixed in clean vessels using clean
mixer blades and utensils. Any contamination from other ink sources or non approved additives
could make Claira Colors™ test positive for the restricted phthalates.
Rutland Plastic Technologies does not knowingly add plasticizers containing the phthalates listed and outlined in California Bill
1108, CPSC HR-4040 and Oeko-tex Standard 100. The plasticizers identified may include di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate
(DEHP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP), diisononyl phthalate (DINP), diisodecyl phthalate (DIDP), di
-n-octyl phthalate (DnOP), (DIBP) Di-iso-butyl, and (DMP) Dimethylphthalate, including esters of ortho-phthalic acid and are
not direct ingredients in the manufacture of Claira™ High Opacity Non-Phthalate Mixing System Inks and Claira™ NonPhthalate
Concentrate Mixing System Inks. Rutland Plastic Technologies does not test the final product for amounts of the
aforementioned phthalate plasticizers and esters and encourages all users to conduct testing for their intended use.
