P-5011 Curable Reducer is a 100% solids plastisol reducer that can be added to any plastisol product to reduce the viscosity of the
ink. P-5011 curable reducer is fully curable by itself.
QCM recommends a starting point of mixing in 2% - 5% P-5011 (by weight) to the ink you need to thin out. Depending on the ink,
you may add up to 10% before affecting the inks opacity; however, it is always recommended that you do a test print to check
opacity after any clear ink is added. Taut screens (25 newtons or higher) are strongly recommended. If using lower tension
screens adjust off contact accordingly. Recommend a 70 durometer sharp squeegee for best deposit.
Use any direct emulsion or capillary film.
Parameters vary between all flash units. Flash for 2-3 seconds with the ink deposit reaching 150-250˚F (65-121˚C
Cure at 325˚F (162˚C) over a 60-90 second period depending on oven type and thickness of ink deposit. A thicker deposit will take
longer to cure as the heat must penetrate through the entire ink layer.
Use any of the commercially available products for the cleanup of plastisol inks.
QCM Plastisol Ink contains no leaded pigments and, when properly disposed of, has no environmental impact. Use a screen wash
for plastisols for cleanup. Scrape screens carefully and store ink for reuse. Minimize unusable scrap ink by segregating ink by color.
QCM PPR-901 Black pigment can be used to convert old ink into black ink for waste elimination.
