QMX-1030 Clear Base is a mixing base created specifically for wet-on-wet printing for use in the QMX Mixing System. The QMX-
1030 Clear Base is an optically clear ink.
Follow the mixing directions in the QMX formula guide. Additionally, you may add 10%-25% to your desired RFU ink colors to
enhance their printability and extend their life on press. For certain colors you may add up to 50%. If you wish to add pigments to
the QMX-1030 Clear Base add up to 30% pigment by weight. After mixing, the finished inks print well through screen meshes in
the range of 83-385. Screens stretched to a minimum of 25 newtons are recommended. If using lower tension screens, adjust off
contact accordingly. Recommend a 70 to 70/90/70 durometer sharp squeegee.
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). Ink should be
dry and without tack.
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.
