Mesh number 120-200, Mesh(screen film )thickness 0.1-0.2MM, it depends on printing Artworks.

Squeegee:65-80 degrees.

Printing tips:

  1. Hot melt glue XG-360R-2print for 6-8times

When printing glue to use cyclohexanoneto liquid the glue, mixing ratio 10%.This type of glue easy to be thick and mesh printing.

Flash by room temp or by 100-120 degrees.

  1. Mid layer crossing linker printingfor 2 times:

Crossing linker         XG-360Z-3     60G

Crossing linker agent  XG-360Z-3B     3G   5%

Flash by 100 to120 degrees.

  1. Silicone ink clear layer printing 4 –8 layers:

Silicone ink     XG-866A-2Y       100G

Catalyst     XG-866B-2           2-5 G  2-5%

Thinner         XG-128AH          10-20G    10-20%

Hot melt glue with solvent chemicals so will get silicone ink not easy or can not dry, so for first 2 times clear silicone have to mix with more catalyst like 3-4%. More catalyst can get silicone dry fast also the print time will be short, so have to mix small quantity silicone with the catalyst to get no waste. After two layers of clear silicone if need to print more times then 2% catalyst is ok.

Flash by 120 to140 degrees.

if needed for high density stickers, if need more high density then print more times clear printing.
