Thinning : May be used straight from the can but it is recommended to thin 5 - 15% by weight with AM-1800 Thinner . Substitute AM-1800 Thinner with AM-1820 Slow Thinner to improve screen stability when shop conditions are hot. When printing on Polycarbonate, acrylics and PETG thinning with AM-3200 Anti-Crazing Thinner may prevent crazing on substrate.For maximum lightfastness or outdoor durability, little or no thinning is recommended
 
Additives : AM-1700 Clear should only be used to increase transparency of colours. However , this will reduce the durability and lightfastness of the colour . Add 5 - 10% DC-393 Gel Retarder to thinned ink to maintain screen stability. Use a small amount of AM-1730 Process Clear ink to improve print quality, if required.
