Fox Red is a bright ready for use discharge ink which is suitable for any fabrics that are 100% dischargeable, producing an extremely soft hand.
Use straight from the container or adjust using CCI CMS pigment to produced desired red shade.
It can be used in conjunction with other ink systems to produce multiple effects.
The rheology and flow characteristics of D-Flo allow for it to be printed with high mesh counts, this produces a very fine image detail and a softer finish for your product.
How much squeegee pressure to use is dependent on mesh/fabric count (usually you will want to use heavy pressure).
Print wet on wet, no flash curing, or print flash print for more opacity.
During long runs it is helpful to mist the screens occasionally that are on press with water.
Cure the printed fabric for a minimum of 90secs at 160c, ideally 2-3mins at 171-176c
We recommend high volume forced air during curing.
Do not allow the print to dry before curing in an oven; the more moisture available the better discharge result.
The degree of colour/wash fastness is dependent on proper curing and hence is highly important.
Heat curing must be complete in order to assure the fabric does not retain the odour, re-cure if necessary.
Add retarder, up to 5% to prevent drying in the screens and provide more open time of the wet ink.
