Default Blazer Pro, Black Print on red Shirt´s after wash...

Hello Guys I am new at this forum.
Sry for my bad English (im from germany)
Ok we have buyed us a Blazer pro before 1 month. Now I have printed red shirts with a 1c black motiv without pretreating 720 x 720 2x 180° 1 minute and 5 minutes in the infrarot. I have washed a shirt and I was shocked about the black it is no more Black i looks like years old....

The next is when I Print on hm DarkGrey ( 1440 undbase 720 x 720 color ) with an Black outline without underbase on the Black Outline, when I wash them there is no more Outline ?

Have u any idea what I can do ?

Thank you

Alex

Hi Alex,

It really sounds like it´s a matter of curring-time.
If you have i heat-press, try press it for like 180-200 sec in 165-170°.

That should work

If the print looks good before heat-press it should not be anything wrong with pretreatment.

Good Luck.
Peo

Take a photo for us and let us see. It could be fading or it could be fibrillation (red fibres REALLY stand out vs Black ink)

USSP what ever they call themselves sent me the following when I questions all the different press times I was seeing on the different forums

"New press times are 180 sec (for all garments now) if you use a nomex pad you can get this down to 90 seconds easily.

pretreatment of whites. only one i would recommend at this point is fastcolor which helps with washability. only use fastbright for when printing white ink to odd color shirts really."



I think you need to try these times and do another wash test

How does your black print on white? how about a nozzle check? if not good you might pop the black cartridge out insert the syringe in the bottom and draw a little ink into the syringe might also be staving for ink
Good luck

I think you need to increase your curing time or the temperature of the curing.

I cure all non-underbase shirts at 325 farenheight for 65 seconds.

All Underbased shirts cure at 330 farenheight for 185 seconds.

They reccomend 60 seconds (lights) and 180 seconds (darks) at between 320-330 farenheight so I just go a little longer and I've never had an issue with fading or washability.

FastColor is a pretreatment for light shirts to make the colors stay vibrant after washing. You won't notice a difference in color when you print them, but you will notice the difference when you wash two shirts and only one gets the FastColor pretreatment.


I would check your curing times and temps and see what happens.

Good luck!
