What is plastisol ink?
Plastisol ink is a PVC-based industrial coating for screen printing cotton, polyester, nylon, Lycra®, and Spandex®. Plastisol ink can be specially formulated for each of these fabrics as one ink is rarely the best option for all fabrics. One Stroke Inks offers numerous formulations for every fabric as the needs of screen printers is constantly changing. One Stroke Inks is also developing PVC-free plastisol screen printing ink as many clothing companies have begun requesting PVC-free products. Although most properties of PVC-based ink and PVC-free ink are the same, the latter will have a shelf life. Enviromax Series is our best offering for PVC-free screen printing ink.
How do you dry plastisol ink?
Plastisol ink requires heat to fully dry/cure. Once the entire ink film has reached 320º F the plastisol ink will be fully cured, allowing for great long-term durability and the ability to stretch with the fabric without cracking. This is usually accomplished with a conveyor dryer manufactured specifically with screen printers in mind.
