• 108LF* is a Glow-in-the-Dark (phosphorescent) plastisol screen printing ink that produces a bright, greenish glow when exposed to light and viewed in a darken area.

• 108LF can be used for direct print or cold peel transfer applications.

• Ready for use from the container.

RECOMMENDED FABRICS
Cotton polyester and some cotton/polyester blends. Always test print fabric before beginning a production run. 108 must be printed over a white base or Puff. 
INK APPLICATION

Direct Prints: 108LF Glow-in-the-Dark ink should be used right from the container without any modifications. If thinning is required, use 1% to 5% by volume of 1110LF Curable Reducer. Adding too much reducer or other additives will diminish opacity and glow. Transfers (cold peel): It is important that the inks are only partially gelled, otherwise the inks will not have adequate adhesion during the final transfer application
