International Coatings 7043 Guardian Gray

SKU IC-7043-G


7043 Guardian Gray™ blocks dye migration on problem fabrics that contain polyester, including sublimated dyed fabrics.

7043 Guardian Gray™ can take a variety of top coats depending on application; from low cure products to regular temperature curing products.

7043 Guardian Gray™ offers superior bleed resistant properties, but on some problem fabrics it may be possible for bleeding or dye migration to occur.


7043 Guardian Gray™ will spot dry, with a very low after ash tack. Dwell time is dependent on the spot dryer used. In some cases, you may have to lower the heat of the spot cure unit because too much heat may actually make the ink tacky. When you spot dry, you are only partially fusing or gelling the surface of the ink. The ink should be just dry to the touch, with no lift-o , but not totally fused. Totally fusing the underprint may cause inter-coat adhesion problems with the inks printed on top. Final fusing or curing should occur in the dryer.
