Stark White LB
Stark White LB - 1 Gallon
Monarch Stark LB White is a non-phthalate, lead free, High Opacity, bright, high performance white that has excellent coverage on dark garments. The low tack formula allows printing through finer mesh counts without the use of viscosity modifier. Stark LB White performs well on both automatic and manual presses. Has good bleed resistance for printing on polyester blends.

Print Stark LB White straight from the container through mesh ranging from 86 to 230 mc without modifications of the viscosity. Use finer mesh counts for softest hand and good opacity. Stir Ink before use.
65°F to 95°F avoid direct sunlight. Never exceed temperatures above 95°F during storage.
Stir plastisol ink before printing. Any modifiers and additives should be mixed in clean containers using clean mixer blades and ink knives. Any contamination from other ink sources could make the ink test positive for restricted phthalates. Do not dry clean, iron or bleach the printed image.
Perform fusion tests before production. Failure to cure ink properly can result in poor wash fastness, inferior adhesion, and unacceptable durability.
Adjust flash cure temperature and dwell time so ink is just dry to touch. Avoid excessive flash temperatures to protect fabric and migration of dyes. If surface is hot and tacky, the ink film has been over flashed. Reduce temperature or time to prevent an inter-coat adhesion problem.
Curing is a time and temperature process, a lower oven temperature setting with a slower belt speed while maintaining recommended ink cure temperature is always best to protect fabric, control dye migration and reduce energy consumption.
Stark LB White can be cured at 320°F. Running at the higher temperatures and/or longer dwell times maybe required to achieve proper cure on jobs that contain cotton, high ink deposits or heavy weight garments.
*Note: Poorly dyed polyester or too much heat in the curing process can overcome any low bleed inks ability to block the migration. For sever migration use a barrier base underlay.
