The EASY SPLIT TRANSFER CLEAR PLUS-9031 is a very soft plastisol designed to be used as a first down clear for transfer application. Once the clear base is printed and properly gelled, it can then be overprinted with a very soft 4-color process or fine l ine prints to emulate direct prints through a very fine mesh. A correctly applied transfer will produce a vibrant detailed print with a very soft hand.
PLUS-9031 can also be printed last as a transfer backing. When the transfer is then applied the PLUS-9031 film will limit the penetration of the printed image into the garment, leaving a more opaque print.
Use release paper designed for hot-split transfers, such as Union Ink's Trans-French T-75 or Trans 55.
The ink deposit should be sufficiently thick to enable the film to split. Use monofilament 86T - 110T (34-43 metric) mesh.
PLUS-9031 Easy Split Transfer Clear is supplied Ready-For-Use and should be used directly from the can if possible.
The PLUS-9031 film should be semi-cured. Over-cure may cause problems later on during transfer application, as more energy is needed to re-melt a cured film. Semi-curing or drying only to the extent that the clear deposit can be printed upon other color s is the desired condition. The clear base will be properly gelled when the ink deposit reaches 210F. (99C).
Transfer at 375F. (190C.) for 10-20 seconds, or 400F. (204C.) for 5 seconds, at heavy pressure (40-50 psi). Quickly strip the release paper immediately after raising the transfer press platen while the shirt remains in the press. This should produce the desired hot-split soft hand print.
