FI-PPA Poly Prop Additive - 182ml for use with 1 Litre of inkPoly Prop Additive - Air Cure Ink Additive

Product Code: FI-PPA and FI-PPA-5L

This additive is for use with opaque inks only and both increases the adhesion of the ink onto synthetic surfaces and makes the mixture air cure - no heat setting is required.

Designed for printing polypropylene bags, polar fleece and items not suitable for heat setting, Poly Prop Additive can be an ideal solution where materials can be damaged by the heat setting process.


Once added to opaque ink the mixture begins to set in contact with air, so you must continue to print all items in one process. If stopping, you must clean the screen or ink will dry and block the design.


Adding Fabric Ink Retarder is recommended in many instances to stop ink drying, however adding retarder will also increase the setting time of the ink by up to 5 days.


This is an Intermediate to Advanced technique, printing Opaque Inks should be mastered before moving to adding Poly Prop Additive as keeping the screen clear of ink is essential or it will begin to dry and a complete screen clean is required.
