Multi-Choice Standard Colors
Multi-Choice is a plastisol ink for general-purpose
screen printing on a variety of textile products. It can be printed on cotton,
cotton/polyester blends, rayons and most open-weave and mesh nylon material.
multi-Choice also can be used for printing standard or hot split transfers,
in addition to athletic printing. multi-Choice is also fast-flashing. A variety
of additives are available for use with multi-Choice for special applications.
In fact, if you want just one ink to do everything, multi-Choice is the choice.
for example, with the addition of MSB-100 Clear/Soft-Hand Extender, Multi-Choice
can achieve a "soft-hand" feel without affecting the cure time! You
also can add our Puff Concentrate and have a true "puff ink"with the
added advantage of being able to control the amount of puff desired. We even
have an Athletic additive that increases adhesion (without a two-part catalyst)
and abrasion-resistance. For nylon jacket printing, the addition of a jacket
catalyst will turn Multi-Choice into a two part ink that really sticks

Features and Tips
Mileage: Excellent. Approximately 450 to 1650 sq. Ft. per gallon, depending on ink deposit and screen mesh.
Drying: 300°F - 330°F for 2-3 minutes for direct printing; 220°F - 240°F for 30-60 seconds for transfers.
Fabrics: Alltypes. For maximum coverage on dark garments, use 61 to 110 monofilament.
Stencils: All types of direct systems. For hand-cut stencils, use water-soluble films.
Wash-ups: Use Thinner DT or any conventional plastisol wash-up sytems.
Reducer/Thinner DT: Will reduce tackiness and viscosity. It also will reduce "ink hang" in the screen while maintaining opacity. use 1%-3% by weight.
Reducer/Thinner PL: Will increase gloss and film elongation. It also will improve "ink flow." However, it cuts opacity and slightly increases the dry/cure time. Use 1%-5% by weight. Use with Caution.
Thickener Paste: Will stir in easily and will slightly increase the viscosity of the ink. It also will slightly increase dry/cure time. Use 1%-5% by weight.
Thickener Powder: also will increase the viscosity but will not affect the dry/cure time. However, it must be stirred in with a drill mixer. Use ip to 1% by weight.
Storage: Store in a relatively cool area. Keep away from extreme heat and direct sun penetration. Store below 95F.
Stir plastisols prior to each use. do not dry clean or use bleach.
Always pretest before use to establish suitability and procedures prior to production.
