- Curing Proces: 315 ° F TO 330 °F ranging on ink deposit, fabric type, ink color, and dryer efficiency. Failure to not correctly cure is the main reason for ink adhesion failure. Thick ink deposits do need additional energy (longer dwell time) to cure, same process for a 100% cotton fabric because of its high moisture content will deduct the curing efficiency in correlation to a 50/50 cotton polyester mix. Dark colors take in the heat and cure faster than light colors in screen printing ink. Colors, which reflect heat metallics, glitters and shimmers, also require more energy to cure properly for plastisol ink. Finally, the use of a Forced Air Dryer is far more efficient for a thorough cure than the use of a Radiant Heat Unit can be used for screen printing supplies.
