Lead-free plastisol Shimmer Metallic inks will heat cure to a glittering, shimmering, metallic finish. They are much brighter than regular metallic finishes. Also unlike most metallic inks, they will not tarnish with age or washing. The finished prints have excellent flexibility. When properly cured the ink layer will stretch and recover well.
Opacity: Shimmer Metallic ink is highly opaque.
Mesh: For direct printing use 60-86 (24-36 cm) monofilament.
Stencils: Use any direct emulsion or capillary film.
Additives: Shimmer Metallic inks are supplied ready-to-print. Reducer/Detackifier (PLRE-9000) may be added if a thinner consistency is required.
Curing Instructions: These inks will cure at 300 F (149 C). Because of the reflective nature of this ink, it requires a longer curing time under the heat to reach the required temperature than standard plastisols.
