RECOMMENDED FABRICS
100% cotton, cotton/polyester and polyester. As with all low bleed inks, pre-print and test all fabrics for dye migration, ink adhesion, wash fastness and other desired properties before beginning any production. 741 White is a low bleed ink, not a
non-bleed ink. On some types of fabric, bleeding or dye migration may occur. Always test print the fabric to be used before beginning production. Because bleeding or dye
migration may not occur right away, it is best to do long term testing on some fabrics to determine if they are going to bleed.

SCREEN MESH
Standard colors:  60-160 t/in (24-43 t/cm) Monofilament
For optimum bleed resistance, use an 86 t/in or 34 t/cm mesh screen base plate and overprint with a 110 t/in or 43 t/cm mesh screen Avoid over-flashing, as it can result in poor inter-coat adhesion of overprinted colors or increased dye migration. Adjust flash settings so that the ink is just dry to the touch.
SQUEEGEE
65-70 Durometer: Sharp edge for light colored fabrics and beveled or sharp edge for dark fabrics.
CURE TEMPERATURE
275ºF-325ºF (135ºC-163ºC). Test dryer temperatures before a production run. Wash test printed product before beginning production run.
CLEAN-UP
Mineral spirits or any environmentally friendly plastisol screen wash.
STORAGE OF INK   
Recommend storage at 65°F to 90°F (18°C to 32°C). Avoid storage in direct sunlight and moist, humid air. Keep containers well sealed.
