APF-PHTHALATE FREE PLASTISOL is an easy-printing, high-opacity that can be used as an underbase, stand-alone or highlight white on 100% cotton garments. Its fast-flashing characteristics and smooth surface make it an excellent choice when used as an underbase and highlight white in simulated process designs.


  • Creamy, easy-printing consistency produces sharp prints through high-mesh counts.
  • High-opacity, fast-flashing ink for manual and automatic presses.
  • Smooth surface enhances the appearance of overprint colors.
  • Completely phthalate-free and lead-free formulation complies with all standards of Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) banning phthalates and heavy metals in textile-printing inks.


  • Gel Temperature: Ink will surface gel at 240° F (116° C).
  • Curing: Sunlan Ink will fully heat cure when the entire ink film reaches 320°F (160°C) for at least 15 seconds.
  • Heat Transfers: APF-PHTHALATE FREE PLASTISOL may be used in printing cold peel transfers.
  • Mesh: For direct printing a 86-305/inch (32T-122Tcm) may be used. For printing heat transfers an 86-125/inch (32T-50T cm) provides excellent results.
  • Stencil: Any stencil compatible with plastisol inks may be used.
  • Modification: Because plastisol inks are thixotropic and can body up during storage always stir ink thoroughly prior to print or adding reducers. If necessary Curable Reducer may be added increase printability of ink and to help clean from the screen.
    CAUTION: Adding too much Curable Reducer will reduce opacity and bleed-resistance.
  • Squeegee: 70 durometer or 90/70/90 triple durometer blades are recommended.
  • Printing Techniques: A print/flash/print technique may be necessary to produced desired results on dark garments.


Always test finished prints for curing, adhesion and desired look prior to beginning full production runs. Sunlan Chemicals cannot guarantee the results or back claims that this mixed ink will test phthalate-free if any additive other than an additive manufactured by Sunlan Chemicals is used to modify this ink. Test results by a third-party laboratory verifying all components used to produce this ink are phthalate-free and lead-free are available upon request.
