Gotta agree with Glupo here. Use heavy pressure with dupont white. I dont change my settings from pretreat to cure. I would hover for 5 secs. before i clamp down. If I didnt hover I would get some of my cmyk looking washed out. Especially solid reds. If we hovered for 10 secs. we would get very slight pitting and slightly worse the more we hovered. Crazy how the small amount of extra hovering made a huge effect in pitting. Thats how I preserved that solid look before curing.

first of all, i apologize for moving away from the ink being the culprit. i know that Gerald had some issues with cracking about a year ago, and we were guessing the problem was DuPont then. it very well could be the issue here.

i did speak with Brian Walker regarding the green slime in Image Armour, and while he said that definitely wasn't normal, he also said it should have any negative affect regarding the ink cracking or peeling. he was interested in knowing the batch number that is on the container of IA that had the green slime.

if heavy pressure works, then keep doing it. i've never used this method, but i also haven't had this issue with white ink cracking. we went through a good amount of ink at the ISS Long Beach show, and had zero issues with cracking. our One Pass and hi-res prints were very smooth, and they were all cured with light pressure.
