Knowledge About Silicone Printing

- May 11, 2020-

Silicone printing simply means by silkscreen printing, using the basic principle of screen printing part of the screen and text can pass through the silicone, non-graphic part of the mesh is not transparent to silicone. Apply a certain pressure to the silicone with a squeegee to make the silicone squeeze from the mesh in the graphic to the substrate. Printing methods can be divided into two types according to printing methods: manual printing and mechanical automatic printing; manual printing can be divided into table printing and fixed printing, and mechanical printing can be divided into automatic and semi-automatic printing.

The printing method can be divided into two types according to the type of silicone: single-part silicone printing and double-part silicone printing; single-part silicone means that the silicone can be naturally cured in the air without baking, the disadvantage is that its operation is more difficult to control, the advantages are , Does not need to be heated so it will not affect the substrate. The double silicone is composed of A and B. AB will not be cured without mixing, so the operation is very convenient. The only disadvantage is that it needs to be cured by heating.

1. Features: strong stretch, anti-fading, wear-resistant. Non-toxic and odorless with strong simulation and high temperature resistance. Has a strong three-dimensional sense and gloss, and has a good anti-slip effect;

2. Production method: When making a plate, first put the photosensitive film coated with the photosensitive material on the workbench flat face up, put the stretched wrist frame on the film base, and then put the photosensitive in the frame The paste is coated with a soft squeegee under pressure. After drying, the plastic base is removed, and the photosensitive film wrist screen is attached to the printing plate. After development and drying, the screen printing screen is produced;

3. Technological process: stretched net-degreasing-drying-peeling film base-exposure-development-drying-revision-sealing network;

4. Uses: insulation cup, U disk, advertising pen, badge lanyard, stockings lace, ballpoint pen, advertising cap, lighter, advertising shirt, color changing cup, business card case, ceramic cup, notebook, work clothes, hat, sports gloves, Sportswear, advertising umbrellas, signature pens, badge sets, key chains, elastic webbing, etc .;
