Printing methods used by silicone factories.

The above are the various printing processes used by silicone factories on silicone products; silicone silk screen printing, silicone digital printing, pad printing, silicone thermal transfer printing, water transfer printing, and mold film printing. 

· Silicone silkscreen printing

This method requires a logo screen set. The ink used will be thick and bright. A printing screen is put over the silicone product, and a squeegee is used to spread the ink across the screen and lay down the designed print. After the ink is dried, a dryer is used to ensure the ink sticks and becomes long-lasting.

· Silicone digital printing

This process involves digitally printing digital-based images, logos, or texts onto silicone products. Digital files are used to transfer designs to a digital press for printing. This method allows surface printing in true color quality. After printing, a highly abrasive resistant and flexible protective film is applied to the printed silicone product.

· Silicone pad printing

In this process, silicone parts are printed by a machine with a metal plate. The plate is flat, with the image chemically printed on it. The silicone pad is pressed onto the ink, picking up the print. Then, the silicone pad is pressed onto the base, transferring the image onto the silicone product.

· Silicone heat transfer printing

This process uses heat to transfer the print to the silicone product. The custom logo is first printed on the transfer film, and then the ink is thermally transferred from the film to the silicone product by a heat press. This method can print several color logos.

· Silicone water transfer printing.

A water-soluble printed film is put on the water’s surface, and the silicone products are immersed into the water. The upward pressure of the water makes the ink adhere to the silicone product. The part can then be removed, leaving you with the printed silicone product.

· Silicone in-mold film printing.
