MaxBright Light Shirt Pretreatment - 1 Gallon
|MaxBright series Light Shirt Pretreatment is a exact replacement for US Screen Print's FastBRIGHT™ product. It is designed as a print enhancement pretreatment for light to dark colored shirts when using WHITE ink on a Direct-to-Garment printer.|
|Light Shirt Pretreat is NOT meant to be a pretreat for only CMYK printing on white or light shirts but ONLY for light or dark shirts that need a white ink underbase.|
|If you are looking for a product to enhance CMYK colors and make the garment more washfast, MaxCOLOR is the product you need.|
Adjust the sprayer nozzle to spray a solid mist but one that doesn't instantly soak the garment. Apply the Light Shirt Pretreat to one section at a time with even strokes. You will want to apply a total of two even layers to the entire print area. Keep in mind, the amount of pretreatment applied will depend on the garment color. The darker the garment color, the more pretreatment is required. For lighter garments, only a light application is needed. Black garments may need a thick, damp coat.
Light Shirt Pretreat acts as a primer by preventing the white ink from being completely absorbed by the garment fibers. If you soak the shirt with pretreatment, the fibers will be so saturated that the ink can not bind at all. This could cause the ink to wash out or fade very quickly. Several test shirts may be required before the amount of pretreatment needed is perfected.
