When applying pretreatment to the garment, make sure to apply it as evenly as possible (mechanical pretreatment machines are the best).

- Depending on the shirt being pretreated there are some variables to consider on how much to apply. A good starting point is 15-18 grams per 14″x14″ area.

- NOTE: 18-26 grams may provide you with better washability and white optical brightness. This is opposite of what other manufacturers recommend.

- Test to find your best laydown for the garment you are pretreating.

- The heaver the garment, the higher the amount of pretreatment needed.

- The darker the color, the more pretreatment is required.

- The lighter the weight of the shirt, you can usually reduce the amount of fluid applied to the garment.

- The lighter the color of the shirt, less pretreatment is usually required.

Always use a high quality garment that is ring-spun with a tight knit weave. The smoother and tighter the weave, the better your final DTG print.Curing:

Curing Shirts with Image Armor Dark Shirt Pretreatment:


Set your heat press to 330F

Cure time:

30 seconds.
If after 30 seconds there is still moisture on the shirt, re-press in 10 second intervals to ensure garment is completely dry.
