Designs printed with Unistretch White and Unistretch Clear exhibit enhanced elongation and resist cracking when the design is stretched beyond normal proportions. Unistretch is available pre-mixed in white or in a clear that can be added to any Union plastisol color or overprinted on top of flashed colors to achieve these similar results. Even though Unistretch Clear can be added to any color, best results are achieved when it is added to the Athletic Gloss, Maxopake or Mixopake series of inks. Unistretch plastisols are especially effective when printed upon extremely stretchy fabrics like Lycra or Spandex.
Opacity & Bleed Resistance
Unistretch White and Unistretch Clear when added to light colored inks such as white, gold or light blue become medium opacity inks. A white underbase is required if printing on dark fabrics. See Printing Instructions for more information on printing on dark fabrics. Unistretch inks are not bleed resistant and adding Unistretch Clear to any low-bleed ink will greatly diminish the bleed resistant characteristics of that particular ink.
For best results use same mesh sizes recommended for the particular ink series in which you have added Unistretch Additive. Unistretch White may be printed through meshes ranging from 110-230 (43-92 metric). Coarser mesh counts will give prints a higher ink film strength resulting in better stretch.
