100% cotton white or dyed fabric. consistent & accurate color matches Stencils: Use any direct emulsion or capillary film compatible with plastisol inks Additives: We do not recommend reducing Mixopake inks when printing on dark fabrics as this will reduce the opacity of the fi nished print. If necessary, reduce with 5-10% of Reducer (PLRE-9000). When printing on light colored fabrics you may add Extender Base or Soft-hand Base in a ratio of up to three parts base to one part ink. This will reduce the opacity of the ink and result in a softer hand however, the color will not be changed. If build-up on the back of the screen becomes a problem, add 1-2% by weight of Flow Control Additive (MIXO/MIXE-9020). Color Mixing Instructions: The formulas and instructions for simulating the standard PANTONE°Î _ãC_ã colors and the Union Ink standard colors are available free after registering on our web page @ www.unionink.com. Printing on Cotton / Polyester Blends: For excellent results on cotton / polyester blended fabrics, substitute MIXE Low Bleed colors for the standard Mixopake colors. Alternately, the regular colors can be printed over a low-bleed underbase white such as PLHE-1070 /1075 Diamond and Premium Low Bleed Whites. Overprint Mixopake inks through 140-305 (55-120 metric) monofi lament mesh. Curing Instructions: These inks will fully cure when the entire thickness of ink layer reaches 300°F (149°C).
