The Tri-Flex 1100 series plastisol inks were formulated for direct wet-on-wet printing of athletic and leisure garments and they can also be used for the limited manufacturing of plastisol transfers. The 1100 series comprises our most extensive range of standard colors, Non-fluorescent and Fluorescent, Metallics, Glitters, and other effects. For the 1100 series all solvent resistant emulsions and capillary film may be used for stencils. A 110 mesh count is a popular choice however, 60 to 280 mesh can be used.
The 1100 series is designed for direct prints, knit, and woven T-shirts, sweatshirts, jerseys, fleece goods, and bandana stock may all be used. All popular types of transfer release papers may be used to produce cold peel transfers.
For the 1100 series a temperature of 315º F to 330 F º for 3-minutes, depending on ink deposit, fabric type, ink color, and dryer efficiency. Failure to properly cure is the primary reason for ink adhesion failure. Thick ink deposits do require more energy (longer dwell time) to cure, similarly a 100% cotton fabric, because of its high moisture content will reduce curing efficiency compared to a 50/50 cotton polyester mix. Dark colors absorb heat and cure faster than light colors. Colors which reflect heat such as metallics, glitters, and shimmers, also require more energy to properly cure. Finally the use of a Forced Air dryer is far more efficient for thorough curing than the use of a Radiant Heat dryer.
The 1100 series can be modified with the 1100-046 Opaque Base or 1180-325 Soft Hand Base limiting dosage to 20% by weight. For reducing 1180-51 Reducer/Detack can be used limiting its addition to 15% by weight. For glitters and metallics the 1180-200 Glitter/Metallic Base should be used.
This series has an extensive range of colors.
