MC-212 Glitter Silver
Multi-Tech Metallic and Glitter plastisol inks are bright, have excellent opacity and are press-ready. These plastisol inks are ideal for either hand or press applications.
Finish: Bright metallic semi-gloss.
Drying: 315° F - 330° F for 2-3 minutes for direct printing.
Notes: A convection, forced-air dryer is recommended (minimum 10’ heat chamber) because metallic and glitter inks are reflective by design. If an I.R. oven is used instead, take special care to check for a proper cure. Abrasion that occurs in normal wash cycles may cause some dulling. Soaking in phosphate-free soaps (like Woolite) is recommended to maintain metallic and glitter brilliance.
Fabrics: All types. For maximum coverage use 61 to 86 monofilament for metallics. Use 17 - 61 for Glitter inks.
Stencils: All types.
Wash-up: Use Thinner DT or any conventional plastisol wash-up system.
Reducers/Thickeners: Use only if absolutely necessary. Modifications will reduce metallic brilliance. Reducer/Thinner DT will reduce tackiness and viscosity. It also will reduce “ink hang” in the screen. Use 1% - 3% by weight. Reducer/Thinner PL will increase gloss and film elongation. It also will improve “ink flow.” However, it cuts opacity and slightly increases the dry/cure time. Use 1% - 5% by weight. Use with caution. Thickener Paste will stir in easily and will slightly increase the viscosity of the ink. It also will slightly increase dry/cure time. Use 1% - 5% by weight. Thickener Powder also will increase the viscosity but will not affect the dry/cure time. However, it must be stirred in with a drill mixer. Use up to 1% by weight.
Storage: Store in a relatively cool area. Keep away from extreme heat and direct sun penetration. Store below 95°F.
Stir plastisols prior to each use. Do not dry clean or use bleach.
Always pretest before use to establish suitability and procedures prior to production.
Every monitor is different so do not use these colors for exact matching.
