This concentrated version you will need to add 4 liters of distilled water per each 1 Liter of concentrated pretreat, so the ratio is 1:4. We recommend starting at 4 then going down, for especially if using a conveyor and heat press combo. You can test a small amount to start with. 

You can test a small amount to start with. For every 3-4 liters purchased you basically make another gallon without having to pay for it, our concentrate is stable and money saving! You not only save there but on shipping also! This will help you to save money if you are overseas or out of the country because of the savings on shipping to you!

Directions for Darks are below but you can choose to use the pretreat any of these ways you'd like. Temp depends on color of the garment but darks are usually best pressed at 342F/172C  and cured at 342F/172C when using white ink. You may also want to cure anywhere from 90-130 seconds depending on the ink type. 

Here's what Anthony Creek recommends:

1. Hang dry then press 3 times to push fibers down 8 seconds each press. 

2.  Press 3 intervals of 17 seconds each. You need to make sure that the pretreat is dry. 3 presses push all the fibers down giving the best print. You may need to increase the amount of pretreat and drying time for thicker items

3. Conveyor drying: Conveyor dry at 330F for 3 minutes and 3 presses of 8 second intervals depending on how much pretreat is applied. 

Usually on t shirts you will need about 23 grams of pretreat and 46 for hoodies. 

We strived to make a pretreat that may achieve the following:

*Conveyor Friendly with heat press combo when drying pretreat
*Can Be Hang Dried
*Fewer Staining Issues Than our Previous Version
*Works with many DTG’s


This product is to be only used with 100% cotton shirts. Using with blended garments may produce results that are questionable pre and post wash. 

This lays down all the fibers, giving you a nice, smooth garment to print. Be sure to use our Kraft paper for darks instead of parchment paper to achieve the best quality print. The pretreatment also helps ink to adhere to the garment, giving you a more vibrant final print and little or no fibrillation (small fibers sticking up out of the ink) WHEN USING OR APPLYING PRETREATMENT PLEASE USE PROPER MATERIALS SUCH AS GOGGLES AND MASKS SHOULD BE WORN AT ALL TIMES WHEN APPLYING. 

UV results are not guaranteed, as we do not test all garments ever produced in the marketplace and we do not have control over what chemicals there might be on the garments and how they will react to our pretreat. Results of any kind are not guaranteed. We are not liable in any way for any damages or losses due to use with our products.
