    • Fusion/Curing:325 F/163 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. Because metallics and lustres reflect it may be necessary to increase temperature and dwell time.
    • 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.
