total cure is 320 degrees.... however gel cure for bottom print is between 180 and 220 if bottom ink is completely cured during the flash stage, top ink will flake off in the wash.

If a base if undercured, and I have already applied and cured the colors on top, is there anyway that I can prevent the flaking in washing?

Thanks

Thanks for the help guys,

I got it to work by drying it again, but only twice as long as before. I washed the shirts today and there dont seem to be any problems anymore.
