Use NPT AP Clear as a base for metallic powders. Use up to 15% Metallic Flake to mix into the AP Clear. May also be used as a top coat clear or added to any plastisol ink as an extender however, extending any plastisol color will decrease opacity. Only mix with NPT plastisol inks to maintain the non-phthalate status. Note: Some metallic flakes contain phthalates. Rutland’s CS flakes do not contain phthalates.
