Printing Recommendations

The choice of screen mesh or engraving depth should be selcted realtive to the desired effect.


After printing and drying, the goods should be given a dry heat curing tretamnet at 150°C - 4 minutes to 180°C - 1 minute.

Due to the high binder reactivity of the print paste the shelf life stability may be limited after addition of crosslinker.
