WOW-1015 Softee BaseInstructions:
Printing: It is recommended to add up to 75% WOW-1015 Softee Base to your desired ink colors. Test print and cure the mixed ink, checking for desired softness of print. If a softer hand is needed, add up to a total of 90% WOW-1015 to your ink. If pigmenting your inks, add up to 30% pigment by weight. After mixing, the finished inks print well through screen meshes in the range of 83-385. The higher the mesh, the softer the finished print. 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. Stencil: Use any direct emulsion or capillary film. Additives: None Flashing: 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. Cleanup: Use any of the commercially available products for the cleanup of plastisol inks. Environmentally Friendly: 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.Statement:
