IC 900 Nylon Plastisol
When it comes to hard-to-print nylon, 900 series inks are recognized as the industry's best. They are fast-flashing, two-part ink systems specifically formulated for printing on nylon. As easy to use as conventional plastisols, they are also just as durable.
Nylon, cotton and some cotton/polyester blends. Always test print fabric for adhesion before beginning a production run. 900 Series inks are not low bleed inks. Testing is required for bleed resistance on cotton/polyester blends and 100% polyester.
The 900LF series inks must be mixed with the 900LF Catalyst before printing. Catalyst comes in 2 oz. and 8 oz. containers and should be thoroughly hand stirred into the ink to the following proportions:
- By volume = 16 parts ink to 1 part catalyst
- By weight = 20 parts ink to 1 part catalyst
- 1 oz. Catalyst to 1 pint of ink
- 2 oz. Catalyst to 1 quart of ink
- 8 oz. Catalyst to 1 gallon of ink
Ink may be used immediately after mixing. Do not mix more ink than is needed for a job. Do not under catalyze the ink. Pot life of mixed ink is 4 to 8 hours.

If necessary, mixed ink may be thinned with 1% to 5%, by volume, of 1110LF Curable Reducer. It is important not to use reducers that are 100% plasticizer, because they may decrease adhesion and make the finished ink film less
