SS-0B1PT pint of SS-0B Bright White Glow in the Dark Screen Fabric Plastisol Inks.Glow in the Dark Screen Inks, are specifically meant, for Screen Printing Glow in the Dark Silk Screen Printing Ink is produced by using the best Glow Powder with our special plastisol based Screen Inks.
Glow in the Dark Screen Printing Ink Instructions:
1.In order to get a better luminosity (glowing) effect of the printed patterns; use silk screen of below 200 meshes for screen printing. Layering of the printing ink will be thicker and will obtain a better luminous effect. Using a silk screen of a lower mesh number is even better, the ideal screen is between 80~120 meshes.
2. To maximize the glowing period of the printed pattern, place a layer of white color under the layer of glow screen printing ink. It is easier if you print directly onto the white color material such as white t-shirts. Also, the thickness ranges between 130 to 150 µm will give you great results and should not be less than 100 µm. For example print the ink twice on 80-mesh silk screen.

Wash-up Screen Wash
SPECIAL RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SS-0B Bright White Glow in the Dark Screen Ink.
For bleed resistance, an under base white, such as SS-WW Extreme White undercoat is suggested.
For cold-peel transfers, use release paper.
Print using meshes 60-140 t/in (24-55 t/cm).
Perform fusion tests before production. Failure to cure ink properly can result in poor wash fastness, inferior adhesion, unacceptable durability, and increased likelihood of dye migration.
Stir plastisols prior to printing.
Do not dry clean, bleach or iron the printed area.
