QCM’s LFP-901 Black is an economical plastisol screen printing ink designed for printing on 100% cotton and 50/50 fabric. The
printed finish is matte with a nice soft hand. LFP-901 Black is our creamiest black and is very easy to use on both a manual and
automatic press. All of QCM’s black inks are the most opaque on the market. For those printers requiring a thicker bodied black
try our LFP-935 or the XOLB-911.
LFP inks print well through screen meshes in the range of 83-305 TPI (32-120 TPcm). Screens stretched to a minimum of 25
newtons are recommended. If using lower tension screens, adjust off contact accordingly. Use just enough squeegee pressure to
deposit the ink on the surface of the shirt. A 70 or 70/90/70 durometer sharp squeegee is recommended.
Use any direct emulsion or capillary film.
All LFP inks may be printed on 100% cotton and cotton blends. Pre-production run testing is always recommended to ensure
adhesion and washability, amongst other things.
All LFP inks are ready to use. They can be extended using WOW-1001 Halftone Base or WOW-1015 Softee Base. Opacity may be
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.
