NA Sparkle Glitter gives a festive look to otherwise flat boring print designs. Use this glitter to decorate
the garment for festive occasions and special events. The large particle glitter flake provides plenty
of sparkle and glimmer.
• Short body and very low wet tack for easy printing.
• Easy to use, no viscosity modifications necessary.
• Silver Glitter can be tinted with up to 10% Color Boosters to make Glitter Colors.
• Extreme high gloss when printed in thick film.
Print Glitter inks through a 33T mc in (13 mc cm) mesh screen, straight from the container. Maximum
flood of ink into mesh count results in a smooth coat of glitter on the fabric surface. It is recommended
to coat the inside of the screen mesh with emulsion for easy clean up. Glitter particles are opaque and
may be printed on white, light, medium or dark 100% cotton or polyester/cotton without an underlay.
They may also be applied as a cold peel transfer. When using a transfer, print through a 33T mc in (13
mc cm) mesh, gel at 200ºF (94ºC) and transfer at 350ºF (177ºC) to 375ºF (191ºC) 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.
