StarTex plastisol screen-printing inks from GSG (www.gogsg.com) are formulated for high productivity, wet-on-wet printing. According to GSG, the inks have a creamy viscosity that does not shear excessively. They offer a satin finish and are compatible with 100% cotton, cotton/poly blends, 100% polyester, and some synthetics. GSG notes that a low-bleed white underbase is required if printing on fabrics with polyester content to reduce dye migration. The company also recommends an underbase when printing on white cotton. The inks are designed to gel at 230°F (110°C) and cure at 320°F (160°C).
