Curing Specifications: Quickset Gloss will cure well with one 200 watt per inch lamp at belt speeds between 40 - 50 feet per minute using 355 - 420 monofilament polyester mesh.
Adhesion should be a minimum of 95% from curing unit with final adhesion developing within four hours of initial polymerization. Coarser fabrics can be utilized , however , curing parameters may need to be adjusted for the increased ink film .
If a loss of gloss or adhesion due to insufficient cure is noticed, the use of UVG Mixing Clear to reduce opacity thus increasing penetration to achieve proper cure, is recommended.
End user must determine suitability of this product for the intended use prior to production.
Viscosity Reduction:Although QUICKSET GLOSS has been supplied in a press ready condition for most printing applications, this system may be reduced up to 10% with UV Universal Thinner for special viscosity requirements.
NOTE: Always premix prior to use.
Coverage: QUICKSET GLOSS will yield an average of 3200 to 3600 sq. ft. per gallon based on film deposit of 0.40 to 0.60 mil thickness .
Squeegee: A 70-90 Durometer polyurethane blade is recommended.
Ink Modification: UVG Mixing Clear may be added to reduce opacity thus increasing cure speed. UVG Mixing Clear is not recommended for viscosity reduction. UV Universal Thinner is recommended for viscosity reduction. However, it is not recommended to exceed 10% by total weight as this will reduce cure rate and may affect adhesion.
Metallics: UVG Metallic Mixing Clear is supplied for use in mixing metallic powders such as leafing and non-leafing silver and gold. The increase in viscosity of Metallic Mixing Clear helps insure a good powder suspension and maintain a good premix shelf life. The recommended mixing ratios are 8% by weight of silver powder and 20% of gold powder. The optimum coverage and opacity, 260-305 meshes are recommended. With the use of UVG Overprint Clear, extended weatherability and non-tarnishing properties can be achieved.
Precautions: Read the material safety data sheet prior to processing. It contains instructions for precautions when processing, handling and storing inks, as well as first aid.
CAUTION: It is the printer's responsibility to pre-test the ink selected prior to engaging in a production run.
