    4 parts ink by weight

    Pot Life - 3-4 hours

    S2735 Gelled Hardener: This hardener has the exact same properties as S1053. Its thixotropic nature can be used to advantage where sharp detail or high build are important. Where pinholes are an intermittent problem when printing onto contaminated materials, using this hardener often cures the problem. Available to purchase here

    Mixing - 1 part hardener by weight

    1 part ink by weight

    Pot Life - 6 hours

    S2629 Extra Matt Hardener: This hardener also producs a matt finish combined with a thixotropic consistency ideal for sharp detail printing. It gives a more consistent matt finish on long runs than the standard matt hardener

    Mixing - 3 parts hardener by weight

    10 parts ink by weight

    Pot Lift - 4 hours

    Note: When using all hardeners, increasing the percentage in the mix will result in a more flexible cured film and the pot life will be reduced. Decreasing the hardener will result in harder, less flexible films and a longer pot life
