General Information

Plasticharge White (DSPCH-1000) is a plastisol ink with discharge properties until now only found in water-based discharge inks. Plasticharge technology makes it easy to print bright, colorful, so ft-hand prints on discharge-dyed garments. Plasticharge White is designed to provide you with the ultimate soft-hand underbase print.

Mesh

For underbase printing with Plasticharge White, use mesh counts from 156 to 178 (62-71 threads per cm).

Stencil

Use only water-resistant emulsions.

Using Plasticharge White

Add 6% ZFS Discharge Agent (DSPP-9ZFS) before printing. Mix until completely dissolved. Once the discharge agent is added, the ink has a pot life of 24 hours.

Printing Instructions

Print the Plasticharge White first, forcing the ink well into the substrate with heavy squeegee pressure, then without flash curing, print the other plastisol inks, wet-on-wet, directly on the Plasti charge White. The color values of the plastisol inks printed over the Plasticharge White will appear after curing. You may mist the screen occasionally with water to maintain the ink viscosity during long printing runs.

Additives

Plasticharge White is water-reducible.

Curing Instructions

Cure for a minimum of 90 seconds at 320º F (160º C) to activate the discharge reaction and produce a washable print. Evaporating the water too quickly will stop the discharge reaction and result in d ull colors.

Wash-Up

Plasticharge White may be cleaned up with water.

Caution

Not all garments are dyed with dischargeable dyes. The printer must test Plasticharge White on the garment before using it in production to determine if the dyes in that garment will discharge.

It is the printers responsibility to test Plasticharge White to determine its fitness for use with the ink, garments, and printing conditions in his or her plant. The washfastness and color fidelity of the resulting print depends entire ly on the plastisol ink and garment used, and printing and curing conditions. We recommend that garments printed with Plasticharge White be washed before wearing.
