Soft-Hand Additives

International Coatings

International Coatings bills its Sentri soft-hand enhancers as an answer to customer requests for soft, water-based-type prints combined with the printing ease and versatility of plastisol inks. The Sentri line includes Sentri Clear, Sentri Black, and Phthalate-Free Sentri Curable Reducer. Sentri Clear 3816 can be mixed with finished colors or color concentrates or used as an extender base, curable thinner, or as a top clear coat for reducing fibrillation. Sentri Black 3817 is formulated to offer a deep, black color that looks and feels similar to a water-based print and to work well with fine mesh counts. International Coatings says PF Sentri Curable Reducer 3818 offers much improved hand over other viscosity-modifying products and extends yield when used as an additive, which in turn can reduce production costs. It’s also phthalate-free. International Coatings Co., 13929 E. 166th St., Cerritos, CA 90702-7666, 562-926-1010, fax: 562-926-9486, Web:
