The W.M. Plastics “PIM” system consists of 17 colors, including fluorescents, that can be used to match
PANTONE colors or as direct print inks. All colors have great wet-on-wet print properties and contain a
creamy body making them easy to print with. All colors are evaluated by our stringent QC process to ensure
the colors are consistent from one batch to the next so your PANTONES match every time.
Bleed Resistance: None
Storage: Ideally 65 to 80 F. Keep out of direct sunlight.
Stencil: Any direct emulsion or capillary film.
Wet on Wet Printing: Can be printed wet-on-wet to increase production.
Modifications: To reduce viscosity use Curable Reducer (I10-9906), improve stretch use G&S Base (I10-1020), puff use Puff Additive (I10-9903), extend color use Soft-hand Base (I10-0111) & for suede puff or dulling use Suede Additive (I10-9907).
Squeegee Hardness & Angle: Medium to hard at a 45 degree angle.
Squeegee Blade: Sharp
Flashing: 700ºF for 9 seconds, just enough for the surface to be tack free.Squeegee Blade: Sharp.
Fusion/Curing: 325 F/160 C for 1 to 1 ½ minutes. Oven temperature can be increased and dwell time decreased. For heat presses use 390 F/195 C for 8 seconds.
Wash-up: Any plastisol cleaner.
Special Notes: PVC inks are thermoplastic compounds that require heat to fuse or cure. If ink rubs off on a white cloth or cracks, temperature and/or dwell time should be increased. Do not dry clean and always test on fabric to be printed.
