Paper: Ultra Strip 3000, Tullis Russel HS. It is recommended that tests be done on other papers to determine suitability.
Stencil: All types
Mesh: 961 Hot Peel ColorPRO inks can be printed thru 74 to 160/inch (30T to 64T/cm) depending on opacity level that may be required.
Reducer: 961 Hot Peel ColorPRO inks are formulated ready to use. If it is necessary to reduce viscosity use 902 Viscosity Reducer.**Please note that inks should be thoroughly stirred prior to printing, inks are thixotropic and will naturally reduce with stirring.
Squeegee: Use a medium (70) durometer.
Method: It is important to “gel” the inks on the paper rather than fully cure them. Recommended gelling temperature is 240-260F (116-127C) for 30 – 60 seconds. The use of temperature strips will help to calibrate the curing with the dryer you are using. If you are using Plastisol Puff and Printable Adhesives these will be printed and gelled last. Improper curing of Hot Split transfers can affect the shelf life, release and opacity of the transfer. Be careful not to under cure as this will affect the shelf life.
Clean up: TR-Blend or 2000 Green
Transfer Application: Transfer your image at 375-400F (191-204C) for 6-12 seconds with medium pressure. Peel hot.
