This is a strong solvent CLEANING SOLUTION. It can be used to remove congealed ink from printer parts such as wiper blade(s), capping station and outside surfaces of printheads.

It can be used to recover clogged nozzles. • Minor clogs - Soak printhead on carriage. Place a well-soaked, lint-free cloth under the printhead for up to 24 hrs. • Major clogs - Used to bathe printhead that has been removed from the printer. Completely clean outside of printhead. Soak printhead faceplate only in CLEANING SOLUTION bath. Perform reverse water fall to draw CLEANING SOLUTION into the head. Let sit. Repeat as necessary. Push CLEANING SOLUTION into the manifold to waterfall the head and check for clear nozzles. Do not soak longer than 24hrs unless head is otherwise considered unrecoverable (last resort).

  • The process is significantly faster than screen printing
  • The crock, or touch, is soft, stretchable, and resilient
  • The graphics resist sweating, washing, moisture, and rubbing – they stay crisp and gorgeous through multiple wear cycles

FTF Application Guide

Step 1 – Printing on Film
– Using a DTF inkjet printer, insert Kodak DTF/FTF transfer film in printer paper tray or on paper roll holder
– For Dark shirts: • print color image on the film • print white image layer on top of the color image
– For Light shirts: • print color image on the film

Step 2 – Powder Application
– Apply the Kodak DTF/FTF hot-melt powder uniformly on top of the wet print
– White powder may be used for all applications or black powder my be chosen for dark work
– Powder may be sprinkled manually onto the print in a tray and agitated to cover print completely
   • NOTE: an automated commercial shaker may also be used for powder application
– Ensure that the powder is evenly spread over the printed surface of the film
– Carefully remove excess powder

Step 3 – Melting the Powder
– Place the film with the printed image and the applied powder in a Curing Oven and heat for 2-3 minutes at 100-120ºC
– Place the film inside a heat press, hovering and not applying pressure. A 4 to 7 mm gap between the film and the heat press top plate is recommended, for 3-5 minutes at 140-150ºC. Do not completely close the press.

Step 4 – Pre-pressing
– Pre-press the fabric prior to transfer of the image by the film for 2 to 5 seconds
   • Pre-pressing will flatten the fabric and remove excess humidity contained in the fabric
   • Pre-pressing helps in successful transfer of the image from the film onto the fabric

Step 5 – Transfer
– The film with the image and the melted powder is placed on the pre-pressed fabric in the heat press
– Press/Cure the image to the fabric for 10-20 seconds at 160-180ºC

Step 6 – Cold Peel
– Allow the film/image attached to the fabric to cool completely
– Separate the film from the fabric, leaving the desired image on the fabric

Step 7 – Post-pressing
– A post-press process is highly recommended for best results and high-performance parameters such as wash and rub fastness
– Re-press the image on the fabric for 10-20 seconds at 160-180ºC
