What is the process of screen printing with silicone ink

Screen printing belongs to perforated plate printing, including transcription plate, perforated plate, spray printing and screen printing. During printing, the ink is transferred to the substrate through the mesh of the graphic part through the extrusion of the scraper to form the same graphic as the original.


Suitable materials for screen printing

Screen printing is widely used. Except for water and air (including other liquids and gases), any object can be used as a substrate, including paper, plastic, metal, ceramics and glass.


Screen printing design considerations

1. Many types of inks can be used. Namely: oil-based, water-based, synthetic resin emulsion type, powder and other types of inks.


2. Screen printing can be printed not only on the plane, but also on the curved surface or spherical surface; It is not only suitable for printing on small objects, but also suitable for printing on larger objects. This printing method has great flexibility and wide applicability.


3. It can be used for colorful screen printing, but each screen printing plate is limited to one color, so there are at least as many screen printing plates as there are colors.

4. Screen printing has small embossing force. Because the pressure used in printing is small, it is also suitable for printing on fragile shopping bodies.
