Part of the Zodiac Libra series of inks.  Mix with the LIB0207 Matte Base, LIB0515 Catalyst, pigment concentrates and you are ready to print.

Mix well with catalyst at 4 to 5% percent by weight of catalyst. Use 4% for longer open time, 5% for the shortest flash. The catalyst is used with the toners at 3-5 % depending upon desired conditions and length of pot life needed. (Longer pot life with less amount of catalyst). Libra Mixed inks print on light and dark cotton, cotton/polyester blends, and 100% polyester (some difficult fabrics may require an underlay with Libra Barrier Black (LIB0997).

Libra mixed inks have a high degree of stretch and durability in the wash process. It exhibits an extremely supple hand. A low cure temperature is another plus for this product series. Libra mixed inks are printable on both manual and automatic printing presses. Unlike other type of inks, Libra inks can be ironed without re-melting the ink film.

Prior to printing, one must add up to 5% LIB0515 Libra Catalyst to any mixed Color (only catalyze enough for up to 3 days of print production as the catalyst creates a pot life).  Mix the catalyst thoroughly. For maximum opacity and brilliance of the colors, use print - flash - print method.

Note: Libra inks normally require more flash time than plastisol inks. Do not apply to substrates that are dyed with sulfur dyes. Sulfur dyes cause a loss of adhesion. We recommend making the print screen with a double layer of emulsion to provide more ink film on the fabric with the initial print. Difficult fabrics like 100% Polyester, sublimated (camouflage) polyesters,etc. may require the use of Libra Barrier Black as a first down base.
