Ready to use Opaque Base can be diluted with TEXPRINT THINNER (maximum percentage of 5%) for a better stability on the screen especially in case of hot room temperature.
When Opaque Base is mixed with standard pigment colours 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 of contact, the inclination and the pressure of the squeegee at their best.
For the best opacity of Opaque Base standard colours it is suggested to use a 60/65 shores squeegee.
To achieve the best washing resistance, it is necessary to cure Opaque Base in a tunnel dryer at 130-140°C for 2-3 minutes.
Tip; use a heavy flood and it will stay open in the screen longer
