More off contact or tighter mesh would probably cure your woes. You can also extend the ink to make it easier to deal with. It will effect opacity if too much is added. I have moved away from the maxopakes because they like to stick to the blade, and I prefer my ink to run a little more.Hi guys,
We've been using Maxopakes, but thought we'd try out the Mixopake range.
Firstly, this stuff is so thick! it's like tar... is this right? Basically, we've been trying to print a very simple design onto a dark garment and firstly it's difficult to prime, and secondly, the tshirt sticks to the screen when lifting it up and leaves a horrible blotchy print.
I'm priming as lightly as possible, and i've tried printing lightly, and also firmly at 45 degrees with a straight edged squeegee. No matter what I do, it leaves a horrible rough finish and far too much ink is going through the screen.
What am I doing wrong... or is this ink just horrible? We didn't have this problem with the maxopakes!
Thanks in advance
