Do not use water-resistant or one-part photopolymer emulsions. Underexposed stencils may break down during printing or cause a chemical reaction between the ink and emulsion resulting in a clogged screen mesh that will be diffi cult and sometimes impossible to reclaim. Additives: Tru-Tone plastisol inks are supplied ready to print. Any modification to these inks can have an adverse effect on their performance.. If necessary, reduce with small amounts of Reducer/Detackifi er (PLRE-9000). Tru-Tone Halftone Base (PRPE-9080) can be used when or if necessary to reduce color concentrations. Printing: For best results Tru-Tone inks should be printed on white fabrics. The color values will be altered if printed on dyed fabrics. Curing Instructions: Tru-Tone inks will fully cure when the entire thickness of the ink deposit reaches 300ԍF (149ԍC). Technical Tips: If you use Adobe Photoshop for making color separations, the most accurate process color separations can be achieved by using the TruTone Ink Photoshop Setup Values Plug In available for free download on our web site www.unionink.com. The Tru-Tone ink set also includes a Fine White Printer (PRPE-1080), a transparent white halftone ink that is printed through a fi fth screen to provide brighter highlight colors, minimize dot gain and enhance detail in white and pastel colors. Five highly-pigmented Triple Strength process color inks are available for printing with an under base white or a discharge under base to obtain true four-color process prints on black shirts. This process involves modifi ed art and higher screen meshes. Due to the many variables involved, the printer is responsible for evaluating what works best for the job at hand. They can also be combined with Process Halftone Base (PRPE-9080) to create process colors with color values unavailable with the standard Tru-Tone process colors. We also offer a variation on our standard Process Magenta. Process Hot Magenta (PRPE-3085) This can be used when you want to produce hotter reds, .oranges, and fl esh tones in your design. Wash-Up: Clean the screens and squeegees with mineral spirits or any compatible Eco-Friendly screen wash designed for plastisol inks.
