Default DTGInks rapid cure time

Curing of DTGInks
DTGInks must be cured by the application of heat and evaporation of moisture in order to achieve a proper cure and excellent color retention after washing.
Dwell time in a heat press when the CMYK image is printed on 100% cotton- 350 F for 60 seconds, very light pressure.

If significant steam is still coming off of the garment at the end of the cure time- increase the time or prepress the garment to remove some of the inherent moisture prior to printing.

When printing more than one layer of ink:
for CMYK plus white images, dwell time should be doubled with a garment cool down and release of steam at the halfway point when using a heat press, or one pass through a tunnel dryer plus one pass through a heat press.
DTGInks is compatible with commonly available white ink and pretreatment.

The relative humidity, ambient temperature, brand and style of cotton or cotton poly blends can affect cure time. It is recommended to perform wash tests to adjust cure time. DTGInks should not be overcured.
