Curing Ink on Fleece

Granite-on-SweatWhen switching from lighter T-shirt to thicker fleece fabrics, screen printers often undercure plastisol inks.  Here is a super simple trick from Kieth Stevens on how you can avoid undercuring on fleece:

The simplest way to assure proper curing for thicker fabrics is to slow down the cure time. Just remember: “Time is your friend.” By setting the dryer temperature for a maximum of 320°F and slowing down the dryer speed, screen printers can prevent undercuring.

Kieth Stevens is the Western regional sales manager for International Coatings. He has been teaching screen printing for more than 10 years and is a regular contributor to International Coatings’ blogs. For more ink tips and information, visit iccink.com.

International Coatings manufactures a complete line of phthalate-compliant screen printing inks, including a wide variety of whites, specialty inks, special effects inks, color matching systems, additives and reducers.  For more information on our products, please visit our website at www.iccink.com.
