PAD PRINTING SOLVENT FOR MG and GX PRINTING INKS
The TMG pad printing solvent is formulated to work with Natron pad printing inks. This Solvent is an important addition when using pad printing ink. This solvent adjusts the viscosity and evaporation rate of the ink, allowing for a successful image transfer. Additionally, this solvent helps to increase the ink gloss and improves the bonding characteristics of the MG and GX printing inks with the substrates. Boston Industrial Solutions, Inc.formulated the TMG solvent for pad printing with closed cup pad printing machines. This solvent evaporates quickly rate compared to other solver solvents. The evaporation rate supports fine tuning of the ink to any industrial pad printing situation.
TMG pad printing ink solvent is ideal for use when printing on glass, metals, and other substrates. This is because this pad printing ink solvent provides for fast evaporation rates. Hence, this solvent will provide better process balance and enhance production output.
Type TMG Solvent characteristics:
- It keeps the ink wet during pad printing for a long time.
- enables perfect ink transfer, and
- improves ink printability (excellent pad release).

To regulate ink viscosity, add 10–20% of TMG solvent to the ink and stir until homogeneous. After mixing, pour the ink into the pad printing inkcup. Let the ink-hardener-solvent mixture settle for two minutes and then start printing.
For all pad printing applications with the MG or the GX series, use the TMG pad printing solvent. Learn more about our Natron solvent-based pad printing ink lines.
Like our other solvents, the Type TMG pad printing ink thinner keeps the ink wet for a longer period of time and still allows for optimal ink adhesion.
