How can simplified silicone printing help you take on new silicone decorating opportunities?
The challenges: Printing silicone rubber:
Because printing experts are asking these questions about printing silicone, it is important to come up with innovative solutions. First, lets explore the challenges and finally offer solutions to these challenges.
Some of the challenges when printing on silicone are:
- Paste ink – These inks require multiple components (solvent, catalyst, ink) to mix. The customer is actually making the ink.
- Translucent- Not Opaque prints (current industry inks are transparent and require double hitting to print)
- Lack of glossy printing ink
- Consistent ink quality–The current inks vary in particle sizes in every batch.
In addition to these challenges, printing companies also experience wastage and higher productions costs both in terms of labor and production material costs due to the silicone ink. The poorly formulated silicone inks cause all these challenges and inefficiencies. Yet, decorating companies continue to print with these inks because they do not have an alternative, until now.
