SILICONE PRODUCTS DIGITAL PRINGING

Multi-coloured, solid and durable
Convincing quality, multiple colours in one printing process, or direct processing of digital data such as photos, logos, text or pictures – the requirements for a suitable printing process for silicone mouldings are high. Additionally, after printing the moulding must be robust in use, scratch and abrasion resistant and resistant to chemicals, detergents and water.

Digital Color Printing
Digital printing meets all these requirements The process enables full surface printing in true colour quality. Digital printing on silicone maintains the high flexibility of the material. The method enables direct processing of digital artwork – investment in clichés, screens or pads is not necessary. Digital printing is the ideal way to print your silicone mouldings individually, down to a batch size of 1. After printing, we apply a highly abrasion resistant and flexible protective lacquer to the silicone surface.

SILICONE PRODUCTS SILKSCREEN PRINTING

The silkscreen is the first printing method. Screen printing requires a logo screen set. Generally, the silk screen printing ink will be thicker and brighter, and the printed pattern has a strong dimensional sense. Silkscreen printing can also print thin lines and is also suitable for large-area printing. The disadvantage is that it is low efficiency as by hand printing and only can up to print 5colors. Silkscreen can only print one color at a time, bake it. Then fix another logo screen set to print the second color.

SILICONE PRODUCTS PAD PRINTING

It is printed by machine with a metal plate. The plate is flat, with the image chemically imprinted. The silicone pad is pressed onto the ink, picking up the image. And then the silicone pad is pressed onto the substrate, transferring the image on the silicone product.

The advantage of pad printing is that the printing speed is fast, and you can print several colors at the same time. Pad printing can be used on a variety of substrates, particularly oddly shaped objects that are difficult to screen print. The disadvantage is that the ink is slightly thinner than the silkscreen, not too bright.

SILICONE HEAT TRANSFER PRINTING

Your custom logo is printed on transfer label or film first, and then ink is thermally transferred from the label to the silicone products using heat by press machine. It can print several color logo. But the logo screen is expensive.

SILICONE WATER TRANSFER PRINTING

Firstly put the printed water-soluble film on the surface of the water. Immerse the silicone products into the water, the upward pressure of the water causes the ink to wrap and adhere to the item. Then removed the products from the water. It can be applied to all types of substrates with full colors printing.

SILICONE PRODUCTS IN-MOLD FILM PRINTING

Cover the film on the silicone while compressing the product, without secondary processing and printing. Washable, folding, scratch-resistant grade A, dry-wearing and wet-resistant grinding A grade, excellent color printing pattern, clear and vivid color printing pattern, environmental protection

Seehope can do the above all kind of silicone printing. We carefully evaluated all methods and help you choose the right way to print your silicone products.
