Dark garments. Direct printing. 100% cotton or cotton/polyester.* Stencils: Use any direct emulsion or capillary film compatible with plastisol inks. Additives: Maxopake inks are supplied ready to print. If necessary to reduce viscosity, use up to 15% by weight, of Reducer/Detackifi er (PLRE-9000). For printing transfers, mix Maxopake with with 5-10% Hot Split Additive (PLUE-9040). Printing Instructions: Multiple strokes may be required when printing by hand. When printing with automatic presses use a slightly rounded squeegee to print a thicker ink layer. A soft pad on the printing pallet will minimize penetration into the garment and improve opacity. Curing Instructions: These inks will fully cure when the entire thickness of the ink deposit reaches 300°F (149°C). Using Low-Bleed Inks: The Maxopake series includes two low-bleed colors: Low-Bleed Medium Yellow (PADE-2060), and Low-Bleed Golden Yellow (PADE-2048). The lowbleed inks are recommended for printing on cotton/polyester garments to control the problem of dyes in the polyester fi bers migrating or _ãbleeding_ã into the plastisol ink. Low-bleed inks are not recommended for printing on light-colored 100% cotton fabrics. On rare occasions ghost images can appear on contacting surfaces of ink to garment. The use of low-bleed plastisols on these fabrics is not recommended. If low-bleed colors are used, be sure to fully cure, to minimize the possibility of ghost images. Avoid stacking or packing garments printed with low-bleed inks while they are still hot. Always check to see if you are getting ghost images.

Always test this product for curing, adhesion, crocking, opacity, washability and other specifi c requirements before using in production.
