  5. 5. Achieving Optimal White Ink Results with your AnaJet Direct-to-Garment Printer Pretreatment What Pretreatment does. Preteatment is a primer/bonding agent that is only necessary when using white ink. (MSDS Ingredients list available). Required tools A sprayer that can spray a fine mist, A Wagner HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) sprayer is recommended, you can also use a Hudson sprayer that will deliver a fine mist. 5
  6. 6. Achieving Optimal White Ink Results with your AnaJet Direct-to-Garment Printer Pretreatment The AnaJet Pretreatment Booth will allow you to move the pretreatment indoors, away from wind, rain and cold. It keeps the undesirable spray mists under control, by venting outside with the provided exhaust tubes, so the operator can concentrate on spray operations. The twin exhaust blowers force all your mists through a multi-stage filter system and then outside. Swing doors allow easy loading of garments. 6
  7. 7. Achieving Optimal White Ink Results with your AnaJet Direct-to-Garment Printer PretreatmentApplication ProcedureMix the pretreatment with distilled water at a1 to 1 ratioApply Pretreatment in slow EVEN passes.Since the pretreatment has a white castewhen wet, look for an EVEN grayish wet sheenacross the garment.If the pretreatment soaks through to the backor begins to run or drip you are applying morethan you need. Going in only one direction even out the pretreatment using a card squeegee to assure EVEN coverage. 7
  8. 8. Achieving Optimal White Ink Results with your AnaJet Direct-to-Garment Printer PretreatmentDrying optionsLine dry, Flash Dry, Conveyer dry, or heat press by hoveringthe heating element above the garment.*Note: When drying the pretreated garment with a heatpress, be sure to hover the heating element above. If youclamp the press down, you may cause the pretreatment toglaze as shown. Storage Once completely dry, shirts can be folded and stored until needed. 8
  9. 9. Achieving Optimal White Ink Results with your AnaJet Direct-to-Garment Printer Pretreatment Effects of poor pretreatment: In this case the pretreatment was applied unevenly with the lighter areas allowing the white ink to soak into the fabric causing a mottled appearance. 9
  10. 10. Achieving Optimal White Ink Results with your AnaJet Direct-to-Garment Printer White Ink Pigment Separation Be sure to check the manufactured date on your white ink cartridges. White ink has an expiration date of 6 months from the manufactured date.Every few days remove the white inkcartridges and give them a quickshake. 10
  11. 11. Achieving Optimal White Ink Results with your AnaJet Direct-to-Garment Printer White Ink Pigment Separation Since the titanium dioxide pigment in the white ink is so heavy, when the white ink is not used for a few days the pigment may begin to settle in the ink Ink tubes. PigmentBefore printing with white ink check thewhite ink tubes where they enter into theprint carriage. If they appear milky orbluish the pigment has settled and you willneed to advance past this settled ink. 11
  12. 12. Achieving Optimal White Ink Results with your AnaJet Direct-to-Garment Printer White Ink Pigment SeparationIf the pigment in your white ink hassettled, a good way to advance pastthis settled ink is to print a square ofjust white ink underbase. Use asetting of Heavy Drop Size, Level 3. Youwill see when the printing begins thatthe white inks appear milky and greybut as the print continues the whiteink will become stronger. When theunderbase is satisfactory press thecancel key. This process will advancejust the white ink without wasting anyCMYK ink. You will then be able toprint with a strong white underbase. 12
  13. 13. Achieving Optimal White Ink Results with your AnaJet Direct-to-Garment Printer Fabric FibersThe image above shows a close up view of the fibers of a standard t-shirt. Toachieve the best results when printing it is necessary to flatten these fibers. 13
  14. 14. Achieving Optimal White Ink Results with your AnaJet Direct-to-Garment Printer Fabric Fibers The images below show the results of printing when the fabric fibers have not been pressed down. 14
  15. 15. Achieving Optimal White Ink Results with your AnaJet Direct-to-Garment Printer Fabric Fibers & Heat Press SettingsTo flatten the fibers of a pretreated garment place it in theheat press and clamp down for about 5 seconds. A higherpressure setting may be necessary to flatten stubborn fibers.After the garment is printed, place it on the heat press andhover the heat element over the garment by approximately ½”(15mm) for 15 seconds.(This procedure allows the layers of ink to set up beforeapplying pressure, this keeps the white underbase layer frompushing up through the color layer resulting in fading of theimage.)Place parchment on the garment and clamp down the heatpress with medium pressure for 90 seconds at 330˚F, 165˚C. 15
  16. 16. Achieving Optimal White Ink Results with your AnaJet Direct-to-Garment Printer White Ink and Polyester FabricsWhen printing on blends of cottonand polyester keep the following inmind. Since the ink will not adhereto the polyester fibers in thegarment the underbase will not bea vibrant and this will in turn leadto the colors also appearing muted.The higher the polyester content inthe fabric blend the greater thiseffect will be.This becomes even morepronounced after heat pressing. 16
