TPV Ink Thinner is formulated to be used with Marabu Tampa series screen and pad printing inks. Adding thinner not only affects ink viscosity, flow properties, and how the ink releases from the pad, but the drying speed, packaging, and adhesion capabilities as well.
To regulate ink viscosity, add 10 – 20% of TPV Thinner to the ink and stir until homogeneous. TPV Thinner evaporation rates are differentiated; higher numbers indicate a slower rate of evaporation.
TPV Ink Thinner Evaporation Rates:
- TPV = 35 (Standard)
- TPV2 = 10 (Fast)
- TPV3 = 200 (Very Slow)
- TPV4 = 110 (Slow)
