Wash-up: Use Thinner DT or any conventional plastisol wash-up system.
Reducers/Thickeners: Reducer/Thinner DT will reduce tackiness and viscosity. It also will reduce “ink hang” in the screen while maintaining opacity. 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.
