STENCIL: A water proof emulsion, or capillary film should be used for optimal performance. Discharge inks can rub away the stencil on your screen if the wrong emulsion is used, ruining the image or even making the screen unusable after a certain number of prints.
SQUEEGEE: 60-80 Durometer.
MIXING: Mix 10% or less pigment with 100% discharge binder, making sure to mix pigment into binder before mixing in the Discharge Agent. Discharge Agent should be mixed at 4-6% into 100% discharge binder (by weight).
DRYING: Discharge inks must be heat cured for 2.5 - 3 minutes at 300 to 320 degrees F.
FINISHING: It is highly recommended to wash and dry garments or fabrics before packaging and shipping.
CLEAN UP: Use water and mild soap to wipe screens, screen frames and squeegees and any surfaces in contact with ink.
** It is the responsibility of the printer to test and determine suitability of all products before a production run. It is always best to run a single test shirt all the way through production, including a stretch and wash test after curing, before running the entire production run.
