Hot split transfers for light or dark garments
All Inktek hot split inks are recommended to be printed through 40-260 monofilament mesh with the exception of the metallics (40-110) and glitter (20-35). For best results with the SO series use 60-124 mesh depending on required opacity, hand, and detail. For best results with the four color process inks 305-355 mesh is recommended for best detail.
Recommended gelling temperature is 240-260°F. NOTE: Be very care not to over - or under - gel hot split transfers. Improper gel can results in a loss of opacity, poor release, and reduced shelf life.
All Inktek hot split plastisols are designed to be transferred best under the following conditions: 350°F for 8-15 seconds or 375°F for 6-12 seconds at 40-50psi.
Inktek hot split inks will work with all papers commonly used for the manufacture of hot split transfers. It is recommended that the SO series be used only on coated hot split papers for maximum ink release.
All Inktek hot split inks come formulated ready to use. If it is necessary to reduce the viscosity use HS013 Hot Split Reducer or HS Reducer.
