Default Anyone still using dupont pretreatment?

Im planning to back to dupont pretreatment....

while IA dark is good, but it takes about 40ml of pretreatment on black shirt
when its solid color especially white, i need about 50ml

while dupont pretreatment i only needs about 30 diluted (means only 15ml of duponot), and 40ml diluted (only 20ml pretreatment)

so its not only more expensive, but since i spray alot, the pretreatment mark not wash off on first wash, it needs 2-3 times wash


the problem was, i had some overspray on dupont before resulting bad wash result, even though its diluted

i wonder are dupont pretreatment still the same since 2013, or it is improved now?

I agree, been testing this for a while and the new Firebird PT is amising. Apart of helping to prevent PT staining it works phantastic on lower quality shirts, and virtually eliminates firbrilation. I will show some pics of crappy FOTL shirts that printed wonderfully.

That new firebird pretreatment is great and is actually cheap when you purchase in bulk. I just bought 11 gallons. You can use it on light and dark shirts.

Yes. It can be used with or without white ink. It can be used on any color shirt. It can be dried on the heat press, tunnel, or hung to dry. Your choice.

Just started using Firebird FBX yesterday with a speedtreater TX, after pressing to dry, fibers are still sticking up. Tried Teflon sheet and coated parchment paper, no difference. The white Hanes Nano T shirts will turn yellow if pressed for more than 40 seconds @330C (heat press checked with IR temp), can see some slight yellowing even at 40. Will be calling Firebird tomorrow for suggestions.
