How to Apply Pro-Tac Screen Printing Platen Adhesive
This week our Sales Manager, Brian demonstrates how to apply Pro-Tac, a Screen printing platen adhesive by Lawson. It is a water-based, pressure sensitive adhesive designed for adhering textiles to pallets in the screen printing process.
A single application may hold hundreds of garments before it is necessary to reapply; 1 gallon is equal to 4-5 cases of aerosol sprays. Lawson Pro-Tac can be easily removed from the pallet with warm water. No more chemical usage on your platens. This product works best when using a flash cure unit, and the great advantage of using the Lawson Pro-Tac is there is no over spray that goes all over your shop. Plus it is eco-friendly!

Applying Pro-Tac is very simple and easy. Here are some tip:
There are two ways you can apply Pro-Tac, directly to your pallet or by covering your pallet with pallet tape first. Then you apply a thin layer of Pro-Tac by using a squeegee card, paint brush, or spray bottle. In addition a thicker layer of Pro-Tac may be needed for heavier material items.
