ICC unveils 804 PF Low Cure Additive for textile screen printing inks

International Coatings Company unveils its new 3804 Phthalate-Free (PF) Low Cure Additive for textile screen printing inks.

3804 PF Low Cure Additive was developed in response to growing customer demand for a product that enables them to print on heat sensitive substrates, such as 100% polyester or the very popular non-woven polypropylene bags. The addition of 3804 PF Low Cure Additive to regular plastisol inks can lower the cure or fusion temperature to 300º F (149º C) and in some cases, even to as low as 275º F (135º C).

“3804 PF Low Cure Additive provides new printing opportunities for the growing range of heat-sensitive substrates in the market today” stated Stephen Kahane, President of International Coatings™. “Beta-tests at several large printing facilities were very positive and demonstrated 3804 PF Low Cure Additive's ease of use and efficacy.”

3804 PF Low Cure Additive offers a printing solution for heat-sensitive materials that are prone to bleeding or dye migration when subjected to conventional oven or dryer temperatures. The ability to cure at lower temperatures also provides greater control in preventing fabric shrinkage. Where spot drying is required, 3804 PF Low Cure Additive may also improve flash times.

Seperate in-house testing conducted on the popular polypropylene materials using the 3804 PF Low Cure Additive with International Coatings' inks (such as the 900 Series inks) have successfully shown that the print does not come off easily and that the ink cures at lower temperatures.

3804 PF Low Cure Additive is available through International Coatings' exclusive network of distributor companies.
