Brilliant metallic sparkle ink! Creamy, short body plastisol for easy printing!
NPT Crystalina is a press-ready sparkle plastisol used for creating specialty effects when screen printing on textiles.
- Low tack formulation for fast shearing action.
- Non-Phthalate formulation to comply with new regulations restricting phthalates.
Instructions: Print NPT Crystalina through a 40T mc in (16 mc cm) mesh screen as a sparkle, or create colored sparkle by shading with single pigment primaries from the M3 or C3 color matching systems. Create different shades using (2% by weight) C3 Color Boosters. May be printed over puff white as a top coat or over white underlays when printing on dark fabric. NPT Crystalina may also be applied as a cold peel transfer. When using as a transfer, print through a 40T mc in (16 mc cm) mesh, gel at 200F (94 C.) and transfer at 350F (177C.) to 375F (191 C.) for 8 to 10 seconds. Peel cold. Refer to technical literature provided by paper manufacturers regarding the correct papers to use for cold peel and specialty products. Caution: Avoid over printing colors formulated with the 4449 yellow used in Rutland mixing systems as some color migration could result.
Recommendation: Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image. Note: This is not a low bleed ink. Do not print on polyester fabrics. 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.
