One litre of Concentrate Pretreatment will make 4 litres of pre-treatment when diluted with distilled water. (mix ratio = 1 part concentrate to 3 parts Distilled Water).
Image Armor Pretreatment
- When applying pretreatment to the garment, make sure to apply it as evenly as possible (mechanical pretreatment machines are the best).
- Depending on the shirt being pretreated there are some variables to consider on how much to apply. A good starting point is 15-18 grams up to 18-26 grams per 35 x 35 cm area.
Test to find your best laydown for the garment you are pretreating. Application amounts will vary based on the weight and quality of the garment being printed.
- The heaver and darker the garment, the higher the amount of pretreatment needed.
- The lighter the weight and color of the shirt, you can usually reduce the amount of fluid applied to the garment.
- Set your heat press temperature to 165c. Cure for 30 seconds or two times 20 seconds.
- Kraft paper should be used and easily removed from the fabric after curing. Teflon can result in a glossy sheen
- Pressure setting: Heavier pressure can be used and will help press/mat down fibers during the drying process.
