I've just done some test printing with IC low cure additive, and it did the job fine, but the shirts seem to have a really plasticy odor.

The prints did fine passing the stretch test and going through a wash/dry, but the odor just lingers.

Is this a sign of still not having a proper cure, or is this just a side-effect of the IC Low Cure Additive?

Just an update.

The inks with high odor did hold up pretty well to a wash test, and did fine in a stretch test as noted previously, but I do think it was a cure issue.

I gave the ink a little more cure time, not more heat, and I didn't have the same odor from the production run shirts.
