Guardian Gray 7043 is described by International Coatings as a revolutionary bleed blocking underbase that protects against dye migration on even the toughest polyester and performance fabrics, including highly volatile sublimated polyester substrates such as camouflage prints.

Guardian Gray’s proprietary formula uses a unique hybrid technology to combat dye migration and stop it in its tracks.  In addition, Guardian Gray has a wide curing range of 275°F – 320°F (135°C – 160°C), making it suitable for use on a wide variety of ink system top coats and substrates. Guardian Gray is fast flashing and prints beautifully through 86-160 t/in (34-63 t/cm) screen mesh.

Recent beta tests at independent print companies delivered outstanding results. Guardian Gray 7043 was easier to work with than other bleed blockers tested and yielded better blocking results, especially with hard-to-block sublimated polyester fabrics.

Guardian Gray 7043 is available through International Coatings’ exclusive network of distributor companies.
