ISS Soft Touch Base is a clear extender base for plastisol ink. The plastisol extender base has a creamy consistency and is as heavy as most plastisol inks so adding base to an exisiting ink, the viscosity is not reduced.
APPLICATION: In order to extend the plastisol ink, printers add base to save money or slightly lighten the shade of a particular color. It is important to add sparingly (no more than 15 - 20%) as adding base will reduce the opacity capabilities of the ink. ISS Soft Touch Base may also be used as a base for creating metallic ink by adding metallic pigments. Cure the ink at regular temperature (approx. 350°F) after the addition of base.
CAUTION: Avoind fumes as this product contains PVC. Provide appropriate ventilation. Use mask, gloves, and proper clothing. Do not use more than 20%, you may lose the opacity and coverage. Do not use base for high opacity ink, especially on dark garments.
