PAD PRINTING INK FOR TEXTILES, EPDM, SOFT TOUCH, AND SYNTHETICS
ST pad printing ink is an easy-to-print, ultra-fast-drying, high-opacity, 1- or 2-component pad printing ink for soft touch materials, rubber, apparel, and natural and synthetic fibers. This ink can stand up to being washed in an industrial washing machine and is very flexible. As a result, it is the best ink for t-shirt care label printing, shoes, industrial rubber marking, and rubberized soft-touch promotional products.
Also, with the hardener added, as a two-component ink, the ST Series ink film is much more resistant to mechanical wear. Even after hundreds of washings, this printing ink will not fade because we only use pigments with high fade resistance. The pot life of the ink-hardener-solvent mixture is 6–8 hours at room temperature (70°F and 40–65% RH). Once the hardener is added, the mixture is chemically reactive and must be processed within 6–8 hours. Please see TDS for additional information.
Like all other Natron printing inks, the ST series is classified as non-toxic (NT)—the pigments are free from heavy metals. For more information, please see our safety data sheets, which are available in accordance with EU and US regulations. Additionally, the primary indications are displayed on the product label.
The Natron ST pad printing ink is also available in six neon (fluorescent) colors, four metallic colors, and 23 high-opacity standard colors. All colors in this ink series are intermixable.
