IC 12LF HP WHITE
International Coatings 12HPLF White is a Mulitpurpose ink that is used for direct printing, cold peel transfers, and hot peel tranfers. It can be used on cotton and cotton/polyester.
Direct Prints: For softer feeling direct prints, add 5% to 25% by volume, of 710LF Softhand Additive. Reducing the ink with 1110LF curable Reducer and using finer meshes can also greatly improve thesoftness of the finished print.
Transfers (cold peel): It is important that the inks are only gelled during the transfer printing process otherwise the inks will not have adequate adhesion during the final transfer application.
Transfers (hot peel): Mix inks with 500 Quick-Trans Additive and printed on a hot peel release paper. Gelation temperatures are the same as cold peel transfers.
Cold peel transfers: 10 to 15 seconds @ 350°F to 375°F (177°C to 191°C). Medium pressure (40 Ibs.)
Hot peel transfers: 3 to 7 seconds @ 375°F to 400°F (191°C to 204°C). Medium to heavy pressure (40 lbs. to 60 lbs.)
If reduction in viscosity is needed in inks, use 3% to 20% by volume, of 1110LF Curable Reducer. A mixture of 1 part 710LF Softhand Additive to 4 parts 1110LF Curable Reducer, added in the same proportion as 1110LF, will result in a product that will reduce, soften, and de-tackify plastisol inks for wet on wet printing. Adding too much reducer and/or additive will reduce opacity of inks.
