The recommended use for Image Armor Dark Shirt Pretreatment is on

Dark 100% Cotton Garments using white Dupont ink.  

*This prepreatment does not work for 50/50 or any poly blend garments. 


Before Use:

♦  You DO NOT need to mix down Image Armor. It is ready to use (RTU) right out of the container. 
♦  Always SHAKE the container before using or pouring into your pretreatment machine container.
♦  When returning unused pretreatment from a machine, strain it to ensure no fibers or dirt, dust, contaminants are in the solution. A clean solution keeps you happy


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:

    I love this stuff. It works so much better that the pretreatment that I was using. Plus I can press dry it so it saves me time.
