More FAQs on GO NeoTack Dye Sub Ink--How Does Tack Work?

Does NeoTack actually have tack in the ink? 
Yes. GO NeoTack’s use of tack is patented and is the only dye sublimation ink to offer this capability.

What impact does the tack have on the flowability of the ink? 
GO NeoTack has been tested for the past twelve months and has completed internal certification for use with the most advanced EPSON printheads. Extensive long term testing ensures the runnability and no clog formulation of the ink.

How does the tack work?
GO NeoTack employs the use of a chemically inert nano-agent which is heat activated at 140 C when using standard heat presses, calendars or other heat units. Once heat is applied, chemical bonding occurs and the ink adheres to both the fabric and the paper.

Does the use of tack totally eliminate the need for tack paper? 
Not in all cases. With some fabrics there is not enough of fabric pile to create a strong bond. In such cases, we recommend testing to ensure tack paper is not needed. When using GO NeoTack without tack paper, a user can expect to save between 10-25% in paper costs.
