Jacquard Puff Additive is used to increase the relief of prints on paper, fabric and other surfaces. Simply mix a little of the additive into your Jacquard Screen Ink (up to 20%), print as usual and then apply heat to your print. The micro-spheres in the Puff Additive expand with heat, giving you a raised print only after heating. Once puffed, the print is wash-fast and dry cleanable.

Use: Add to Jacquard Screen Ink (JSI) up to 20% by weight. Mix thoroughly. Pot life of mixture is indefinite. Apply heat to print and ink will puff in all directions. For use on paper, fabric, and other surfaces.
Finish: Puff Additive has a matte finish and will affect the semi-gloss finish of JSI in proportion to the amount added.
Opacity: Puff Additive becomes opaque upon expansion and will opacify JSI in proportion to the amount added.
Mesh Count: 80-305/inch (32T-122T cm) or according to ink specifications. JSI is recommended with mesh counts 80-160/inch (32T-64T cm).
Drying/Curing: While print is wet, heat the entire ink deposit to 275˚F/135˚C using a hot air gun or oven to puff. Do not overheat. For best results, allow ink to air cure 72 hours once puffed before washing.
Cleanup: Cleans up with water or mild detergent.
