SILICONE SOLVENT – FOR CLEANING AND THINNING ALL SILICONE APPLICATIONS
TRM silicone thinner formulated to lower the viscosity of platinum and silicone cure silicone. This silicone ink solvent works not only with our silicone inks, but with any other platinum cure and tin cure silicone rubber substrates. Use the solvent with pad printing, screen printing, and spraying silicone inks. It is also perfect for clean-up for screens, cups, brushes, and other silicone applications. Learn how to mix ink.
This solvent is available in 1 quart, and 1 gallon size containers.
Boston Industrial Solutions has formulated Type TRM silicone inks solvent for pad printing, spraying, screen printing, and color filling applications. This solvent has medium evaporation rate compared to the Type SF Solvent and Type SS Silicone Solvent. The evaporation rate supports fine tuning of the ink to any printing situation.
The Type TRM silicone thinner is ideal for using in any printing conditions. This is because the solvent provides medium evaporation rates. Hence this solvent will provide better process balance and enhance production output.
The Type TRM Silicone Solvent / Reducer characteristics:
- It helps keep the ink wet during pad or screen printing for a long time.
- Extends the pot-life of the silicone inks, and
- Enables screen stability and improves ink printability.
- It has a very low smell and very low VOCs.
Advantages of TRM Silicone thinner
This silicone solvent once added to silicone rubber makes the mixed rubber or silicone ink flow better. Additionally, it increases the pot life of silicone and slightly reduces the number of ties needed to cure the silicone ink or rubber. Lastly, it helps to de-gas the silicone during vacuuming.
