10 Facts About Our Newest Invention, ‘Fusion Bond’


Fusion Bond is phthalate free plastisol ink with a coupling or bonding component. Fusion bond makes the ink behave as if it has a catalyst, yet does not have one and stays soft. A direct screen print will stick to heat sensitive coated materials. The ink cures at 220°F -240°F. Fabrics that can stand the heat of a flash can be cured with a flash at 450°F for 4 seconds. This includes polyester and cotton bags. Fusion bond was specially formulated with coupling capability for a revolutionary transfer method that eliminates weeding on colored garments.
