Imagine achieving the look and feel of discharge without printing discharge. With Ryonet’s new RyoCharge Plastisol Ink Additive you can simply add 50% of RyoCharge additive, mix in the activator and now you’re printing with a hybrid plastisol discharge ink.
NOTE: RyoCharge Base must be activated with Discharge Agent in order to work.
Screens must be coated with a plastisol or hybrid emulsion. Post-hardening the stencil is recommended for long print runs. If using with a pigment system, mix in pigment at the desired shade or level. 1-10% is normal for standard pigments and up to 20% for fluorescent pigments. Inks may be thinned with Curable Reducer, if a lower viscosity is required, up to 10% max.
- Mix the RyoCharge one to one with plastisol (50/50). Stir until the ink and RyoCharge are mixed thoroughly and have an even consistency. Do not use high speed mixers that can heat the ink and cure it in the container.
- Add Ryonet Discharge agent 3 to 6% by weight to the plastisol/Ryocharge mixture and stir in until completely dissolved into the ink. Once the ink is mixed it has a pot life of up to 24 hours. Only mix what you you will use for current production.
- Print wet-on-wet without flash curing. Degree of color/wash fastness is dependent on proper curing.
Force the ink into the substrate, with heavy squeegee pressure. Print wet on wet without flash curing. The true color of the garment will not show completely until cured. On long print runs spray (mist) the screen with water to help the ink viscosity if you see drying.
