CALL 704-553-0046 EXT. 192 FOR MORE INFORMATION.
ES0266 NPT Barrier Base is being offered as a high opaque, low bleed under base that has been formulated
for maximum opacity and excellent bleed resistance on 100% Polyester. Test of this product
has been very successful on various fabrics to include 100% Polyester Jerseys, 100% Polyester Performance
fabrics, Rotary Screen printed goods, Sublimated prints, and works to block fabric color migration
when printing a clear top coat over a white. NPT Barrier Base is the non-phthalate version of ML0266
Dyno Grey. ES0266 NPT Barrier Base prints with a satin finish and is grey in color similar to Pantone
• High performance under base for 100% Polyester
• Creamy, short body plastisol for easy printing.
• Low tack formulation for fast shearing action.
• User friendly, no viscosity modifications necessary.
• Superior low bleed properties.
• Non-Phthalate formulation to comply with new regulations restricting phthalates.
Print Barrier Base straight from the container. Barrier Base is user friendly and may be printed through 86—
110 mc in (34 - 43 mc cm) mesh range without modifying the viscosity. Print Rutland’s standard White inks
on top of the Dyno Grey to have a brilliant White print! Use softer squeegee or thicker emulsion on both the
the Barrier base and White screen to insure complete coverage and maximum low bleed properties. A thicker
layer of Barrier Base is suggested for severe bleeding fabrics.
NOTE: Due to variations in dyed polyesters, any application whether referenced or not in this technical data should be
pre-tested for suitability on the actual production fabric and/or consultation sought with Rutland’s Applications Laboratory
prior to printing.
• Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image.
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.
