The mesh thickness is the next factor to consider. The lower density means that the fabric will stretch easier. It is recommended that the screen be raised before applying the ink. For maximum results, the material should be dried. When the printing process is complete, the fabric will be ready for the next step: preparing the fabric. The ink has a negative effect. It will reverse the design on the screen.
A printing press can accommodate a wide range of media, from cotton to acrylic. The thickness of polyester, for example, is commonly used in touch screen printing. This type of film is used in various industries. This material is used for many types of textiles. It is ideal for textiles made of PU and PET. In addition to polyester, it is also suitable for touch-screen printing. The ink can be a combination of water-based and solvent-based inks.
The mesh is a basic requirement in screen printing. The mesh is produced from polyester or nylon. The inks used in this process are primarily acrylic, and are applied on the fabric with a special ink. The process of screen printing is a combination of solvents, and a stencil. This ink is applied directly to the fabric. During the printing process, it is applied to the textile.
Before screen printing, it is necessary to prepare the fabric for the printing. For example, using a water-based ink, a dye can be applied directly to the screen fabric. Depending on the type of material, it can be used for a variety of purposes. The inks used for touch screen printing are usually pigmented, which is why they are not permanent. The colours can be very durable and long-lasting.
