Prototyping Finishing Services – Silk Screening

Silk screening, it refers to use silk as a basic printing plate, then the ink of silk holes on printing plate with pattern can be through, non-pattern of silk holes cannot be trough. Using this theory to print.

Silk screening consist of five major elements: screen printing plate, scraper, ink, printing table and printed material.

And it has some advantages as below:

1. Not limited by the size and shape of printed material in rapid prototyping.

Generally printing, can only be performed on a flat surface, but things with a shape can be silk screen printed.

2. The printed plate is soft and small printing pressure; silk is soft and flexible, too.

3. Strong ink coverage can be used for pure white printing on all black paper with strong three-dimensional effect.

4. Strong adhesion. Applicable to all types of inks, flexible printing methods.

5.Strong optical rotation resistance can keep the gloss of printed matter, suitable for long-term display, such as advertising board!

6. Printed plate is easy to be made, cheap price, easy to master technology.

7. Can be printed by hand or by machine.
