High Opacity (HO) inks are formulated to be directly printed onto medium to dark colored, 100% cotton garments. These inks provide great coverage and have a creamy body unlike most High Opacity inks, therefore making the ease of printing more simple.
Bleed Resistance: High
Storage: Ideally 65 to 80 F. Keep out of direct sunlight.
Mesh: 86-240 (34 to 110 threads per cm)
Stencil: Any direct emulsion or capillary film.
Wet on Wet Printing: Can be printed wet-on-wet to increase production.
Modifications: To reduce viscosity use Curable Reducer, improve stretch use Stretch Additive, for puff use Puff Additive,and extend color use Soft-hand Base.
Squeegee Hardness & Angle: Medium to hard at a 45 degree angle.
Flashing: 700ºF for 9 seconds, just enough for the surface to be tack free.
Fusion/Curing: 325 F/163 C for 1 to 1 ½ minutes. Oven temperature can be increased and dwell time decreased. For heat presses use 390 F/195 C for 8 seconds.
