Direct printing

Fast –flash curing from 2 to 3 sec.
After flash-curing the surface of the fabric will not be so sensitive to the temperature therefore pulling a second later will not be necessary.
Attention: To avoid weak curing of white inks, settle the flash time and flash power correctly.
Printing wet on wet: Ink can be printed wet on wet when the pallets are warm.

Substrates: Paper (ref. 2543100) or polyester mat (ref. 2543600).
Drying of the substrates: 1 min at 100 – 110°C.
