The six characteristics of manual silk printing determine its position in the printing industry

[China Packaging News] silk printing mainly developed rapidly in the 1980s. After so many years, silk printing has been closely related to people's lives. Manual silk printing has been associated with a large number of industrial products. Why is the status so important? This is related to its characteristics. Let's learn about it

1. A wide range of printing

manual silk printing has great flexibility and wide applicability in the future. Using silk printing, it can be printed on the plane, on the substrate with special shape, or even on the concave convex surface. In addition, for printing of silk printing, we combine our business with the general trend of the world. The printing format is relatively wide. It can be printed in a large area, with a printing format of more than 3m and 4m. It can also be printed on ultra-small and ultra-high precision articles. Because the silk screen printing plate is soft and elastic, and the printing pressure is small, if you need to print on a substrate as soft as textiles, and various glass and ceramic vessels that are easy to be damaged under pressure, you can choose silk printing

2. Wide adjustable range of ink layer

the thickness of ink layer is only a few microns for printing materials printed by relief printing and flat printing, and 12 ~ 15um for intaglio printing. Compared with them, the ink layer thickness range of manual silk printing is relatively wide: under normal conditions, the ink layer thickness is about 10 ~ 20um; The thinnest can reach 5um; For special thick film printing, the ink layer will exceed 1000um. If the ink layer of silk printing is thick, it shall be formed according to the forming cycle determined by the required output, so as to make it more suitable for printed circuit board, oil painting and textile printing. In addition, because the covering power of the ink is particularly strong, it can be printed in pure white on all black paper

3. Applicable to various types of inks

the range of inks available for manual silk printing has exceeded the definition of common inks, including size, paste, paint, adhesive and solid powder. Therefore, silk screen printing ink is sometimes referred to as printing material. In addition, compared with other printing methods, silk printing does not require very high fineness of pigment particles in the ink. As long as the ink and coating that can pass through the fineness of silk holes can be used

4. Good outdoor performance

because silk printing is applicable to a wide range of inks, it can use inks added with light-resistant pigments or fluorescent pigments, so that the pictures and texts of the printed matter will not be affected by the temperature and sunlight, but will remain glossy, and even glow at night. This feature determines that silk printed products can be used for advertising and signs outdoors

5. Not restricted by enterprises

manual silk printing, like lithography, relief printing and gravure printing, can be industrialized in large-scale production. At the same time, it has the characteristics of convenient plate making, low price, flexible and diverse printing methods and easy to master technology, which are unmatched by the other three printing methods. Therefore, it is not limited by the size of the enterprise, and even individual operation is feasible

the above is an introduction to the characteristics of manual silk printing. I hope you can understand it. For more information, please continue to pay attention to Chinese packaging
