DISCHARGE is a two-component ink. The activator amount must be 6% of the base weight.
Add max 6% of water based pigments. Please note that the pigments used have to be resistant to discharge inks.
If an optical white effect is required, add max 10% of white pigment. We recommend to prepare the colour mixture in advance and then, as the last thing before printing, add the activator.
The activator quantity can be increased up to 10% to increase the discharging power.
The mixture (TEXPRINT DISCHARGE F + TEXPRINT CORRODENTE F) has a pot-life of up to 8 hours.
Before printing it is necessary to check that the fabric has been dyed with dischargeable dyes.
It can be printed with screens up to 90 mesh (th/cm).
In order to obtain the best colour opacity and brightness, during printing, it is recommended to adjust the off contact, the inclination and the pressure of the squeegee at their best.
For the best resistance in printing we advise to use AMEX SCREEN SOL QT emulsion.
If long runs are required we suggest to catalyse the screen with SCREEN-CHEM CATALYST.
We advise to use a 70/75 shores squeegee.
To achieve good polymerization and discharge effect it is necessary to dry at 160°C for 2-3 minutes. It is possible to dry the discharge ink also with the heat press at 160°C for 1-2 minutes.
With the polymerization this particular discharge may develop formaldehyde. For this reason, we recommend to wash the garments before wearing.
Wash tools with water.
If stored in its original container at a temperature between 10°C and 25°C the discharge ink will preserve its features for at least 1 year from the date of production.
