how to Print Silicone Ink on Waterproof Fabric?

Waterproof fabric printing silicone ink

Preparation:

  1. Mesh&Squeegee: 120(48T) Mesh number; 65-75 degree Squeegee.
  2. : Pigments added ratio: For white and fluorescent color 20%, other color 10%
  3. Catalyst mixing ratio:2% slow dry XG-866B-1 and fast dry XG-866B-2 can mix together for use.
  4. Thinner XG-128A adding ratio:0-20% thinner is not necessary for hand printing
  5. Heating Temp and time: Flash cure temp:100℃- 120℃ for 6-10 seconds, Drying temp: 120℃- 140℃ for about 2 -5 minutes. XG- 360Z-3 and XG- 180AB have to bake 10-20 minutes

Silicone ink printing tips:

Special agent for under coating for two times:

A. Crossing linker XG-360Z-3 20G

Crossing linker agent XG-260Z-3B 1G 5%

B.  Adhesion agent        XG-180A          20G

Adhesion agent harder  XG-180B         2G  10 %

Two solutions can chose A or B depends on fabric type,need to do test first.

Cure by temp of 120℃ 10-20 seconds. Need longer curing time than silicone ink.

XG-180AB with better fastness and low cost than XG-360Z-1&XG-360ZB

1st   HD silicone for under coating for2-4 times :

HD silicone       XG-866A/866AH        30G (Or round silicone XG-866LK-1)

Fast dry catalyst   XG-866B-2          0.6G  2%   If machine printing to use slow dry catalyst.

Thinner     XG-128AH  thinner is not necessary for hand printing,5-20% is enough for machine printing. Cure by temp of 120℃ 6-10 seconds.

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

HD silicone     XG-866A/866AH        30G (Or round silicone XG-866LK-1)

Red color pigment    XG-102          3G  For white and fluorescent color 20%,other color 10%

Fast dry catalyst        XG-866B-2     0.6G  2%  If machine printing to use slow dry catalyst.

Thinner     XG-128AH  thinner is not necessary for hand printing,5-10% is enough for machine printing. Cure by temp of 120℃ 6-10 seconds.

3rd  Glossy or matte silicone ink for top coating printing

A, Glossy top coating for 1-2 times:

Glossy silicone ink   XG-399-3    30G

Fast dry catalyst  XG-866B-2      0.6G  2% If for machine printing to use slow dry catalyst.

Thinner     XG-128AH  thinner is not necessary for hand printing,5-10% is enough for machine printing. Cure by temp of 100-110℃ 10-25 seconds  Have to get silicone bubbles out first then heating ,try to use code wind to support and it will be better to use low temp by longer heating time.

B, Matte top coating for 1 time:

Matte silicone          XG-866M        30G

Fast dry catalyst        XG-866B-2       0.6G  2%  If machine printing to use slow dry catalyst.

Thinner     XG-128AH  thinner is not necessary for hand printing,5-10% is enough for machine printing. Cure by temp of 120℃ 6-10 seconds.

After printing finish, heat by 100℃ for at least10- 20 minutes. XG- 360Z-3 and XG- 180AB have to bake longer time then can work with special coating materials to get good fastness, to back 20 minutes will be better.

( For some waterproof fabric with migration problem then need print anti-migration silicone for two times after print clear silicone ink :

Anti-migration silicone  XG-866F-1   30G

Anti-migration silicone agent XG-866FB  0.6G  2%

Fast dry catalyst  XG-866B-2      0.6G  2%  If machine printing to use slow dry catalyst.

Thinner     XG-128AH  thinner is not necessary for hand printing,5-10% is enough for machine printing. Cure by temp of 120℃ 6-10 seconds.Can not heat to be total1ly dry ,or will easy lead to be layered.)
