Plastisol cures once it reaches 320 degrees of heat. On the other hand, to properly dry water based ink or discharge ink you need heat and air movement to drive water from the ink in order to cure the pigment. Gas dryers use convection heat to achive this. Electric t-shirt dryers use color blind Infrared heaters to heat the shirt and ink, which forms stem, forced air blows away the moisture so heat can cure the pigment. Note: The more air the better
Drying Equipment Options : (1) Air flash cure for small runs (2) inexpensive alternative to an large jet air textile dryer is a air flash & small infrared t-shirt conveyor dryer.
