Default BN-20 with Stahl's SuperTek Opaque

I'm wondering if anyone is using this material with a BN-20. I am have real problems with it.

I print the graphic, let it sit overnight before masking, mask with the recommended product (Solutions Mask), then follow the the application instructions to a "T."

After the design is tacked down for 5 seconds, you are to pull away the mask before sealing. When I do that, the mask is pulling ink off the substrate and ruining the print, and also ruining the item it is being applied to. It seems like the ink is not properly cured.

I called Stahl's and they said that likely the problem is the heater temp on the printer, and that the heater/dryer on the BN-20 needs to be turned up to 50 degrees C.

According to the operator's manual, the BN-20 heater is fixed at 35 Degrees C - there is no adjustment that I can find.

I'm must say, this is amazingly disappointing. There's is nothing in Stahl's product documentation that describes the 50 degree heater requirement.

I would appreciate a reply from Stahl's on this, or from anyone else that has a solution.

Also a recommendation for an alternative print/cut material in 20" rolls that sticks to nylon/poly/spandex etc would be appreciated.

I am using an Sp300i and Express print from stahls is great. I have been using it for a few years, and love it. If I am cutting on the ink i let it dry for a few minutes before I cut, and if not cutting on the ink, no dry time and cut right away.

How hot are you pressing? I had a similar problem with the stahl's sublistop material. I started pressing at 280 degrees, and that has since fixed the problem

I use 285F for this material. Never had a problem with that temp using pre-printed logos in the past.

Last time I talked with Stahl's, they told me that some of their material was being retested. I wonder if the material you're using is one that is being tested, and hasn't had all the kinks worked out

On the advice of some other Roland users, I'm trying a different icc profile on the printer to see if that solves it. Should have my results tomorrow.
