Silicone Screen Printing Process

Screen printing belongs to orifice plate printing, which is simply understood as using mesh glue to seal the excess mesh area, leaving the required image or text, and using a certain pressure to transfer ink through the holes of the orifice plate to the substrate, forming an image or text. Common screen printing applications in daily life include product instructions, decorative patterns on household appliances, T-shirt patterns, signage, book covers, posters, business cards, etc. Screen printing has a wide range of adaptability, and is usually divided into several categories based on different substrates: paper printing, plastic printing, ceramic printing, glass printing, circuit board printing, metal printing, textile printing, and so on.

Operational Principle

Screen printing consists of five main elements, namely screen printing plate, scraper, ink, printing platform, and substrate. The basic principle of screen printing is to use the basic principle of using the screen printing plate to allow ink to pass through the mesh holes of the graphic and textual parts, while the non graphic and textual parts do not allow ink to pass through the mesh holes for printing. During printing, ink is poured into one end of the screen printing plate, and a scraper is used to apply a certain amount of pressure to the ink area on the screen printing plate. At the same time, it moves at a constant speed towards the other end of the screen printing plate. During the movement, the ink is squeezed onto the substrate by the scraper from the mesh holes in the graphic and text parts. The substrate for screen printing can be various substrates such as paper, wood, glass, metal, plastic, textile fabrics, etc.
