HD glossy Silicone and Silicone HD matte printing tips.

For liquid silicone ink for fabric (cotton cotton blended ,sportswear….)printing,we have HD silicone,soft HD silicone ,round silicone, elastic silicone matte silicone,suede puff silicone ,flocking silicone to achieve HD glossy, HD matte, HD puff, HD pulling stone ,HD brush effect…

Liquid printing silicone ink printing Preparation:

Mesh&Squeegee: 100-120(40-48T)

 Mesh number ;65-75 degree Squeegee.

Pigments added ratio:For white and fluorescent color 20%,other color 10%

Catalyst mixing ratio:2% slow dry XG-866B-1 and fast dry XG-866B-2 can mix together for using.If machine printing to chose slow dry catalyst or slow and fast dry half and half.

Silicone thinner XG-128AH adding ratio:0-20%    

Heating Temp and time:

Flash cure temp :100℃- 120℃ for 6-10 seconds ,

Drying temp :120℃- 140℃ for about 2 -3 minutes.

For different type of fabric we chose different based silicone for high density printing,for some smooth or oil coated fabric have to print 1-2 layers crossing linker for under printing for better fastness and washing first then print silicone ink.

How to chose suitable silicone for different fabric for silicone printing?

How print HD glossy and matte silicone on cotton and blended fabric?

If cotton fabric can chose HD silicone and HD soft silicone for under printing and HD printing then mixing with color pigments for color layer printing, and print glossy or matte for top printing as bellow:

Printing process:

1.HD or Soft silicone for under coating and high density printing for 2-8 times :

HD/Soft silicone     XG-866A/AR+       60G  Or use HD silicone XG-866AH

Fast dry catalyst   XG-866B-2        1.2G  2%  

Silicone thinner     XG-128AH  Silicone thinner is not necessary

Flash by temp of 120℃ 6-10 seconds.

If fabric with serious hairy or want to get more smooth effect kindly assist by heat press machine or iron on the third time printing,after third time printing keep wet to heat press by temp 150-170 degree for 10-20 seconds.If need more high density then print more layers.

2.Color effect silicone printing for 3-4 times :

HD/Soft silicone     XG-866A/AR+         50G  Or use HD silicone XG-866AH

White color pigment    XG-102          10G For white and fluorescent color 20%,other color 10%
