General Information:

 

Polyester low-bleed plastisols (POLY/ATHP) are Union’s ultimate high-opacity, low-bleed plastisols formulated to fight dye migration on the nastiest, bleeding 100% polyester athletic uniforms or other synthetic substrates prone to dye migration. It’s formulated to provide excellent printing characteristics and is designed for both manual and automatic printing. Premium Low-Bleed White POLY/ATHP-1070 offers printers a low-bleed white ink with easier printability, increased whiteness and better postbleed properties. All standard colors contain non-migrating pigments.

Opacity:

Polyester low-bleed plastisols are formulated to provide high-opacity.

Mesh:

Print through 74T-110T (29-34 metric) monofilament Polyester. For maximum opacity use 62T (24 metric).

Additives:

Polyester low-bleed plastisols are supplied ready to print. Since plastisol inks “body up” at rest, always stir the ink well to determine the actual printing viscosity before adding any reducer.  Reducing may cause the ink to penetrate into the fabric affecting coverage. If it becomes necessary to add reducer use PLRE-9100 in increments of ½% to 2% by weight.

Stencils:

Any properly applied direct emulsion or capillary film compatible with plastisol inks.

Printing Instructions:

For the best coverage, bleed resistance and brightest print, adjust the off-contact distance and squeegee pressure so the majority of the ink film remains on top of the printed fabric rather than being pushed completely through it.  For best results on dark fabrics use a print/flash/print technique.

Curing Instructions:

Polyester low-bleed plastisols will fully cure and withstand repeated washings when the entire ink deposit reaches a minimum of 300°F (149°C).

Caution:

Because of the thick ink deposits required for athletic printing, Low-Bleed plastisols may require higher dryer temperatures or slower belt speeds for the entire ink deposit to reach the recommended curing temperature.

Due to the varying qualities of dye processes of Polyester fabrics, the substrate should be tested and observed over time as post-bleed can occur up to several weeks after the fabric is actually printed.

It is also important to be certain that some of ink penetrates the into the fabric to ensure proper adhesion. Always test prior to production run.
