Do you know the magic of screen printing mesh?
Screen printing mesh refers to the use of screen as a base plate, and through photolithography method, with a graphic screen printing plate.Screen printing mesh from the weaving material is divided into metal mesh and chemical fiber network.Metals are generally made of stainless steel, which has high tension and low elongation, but the price is very expensive and the application is not very common.Chemical fiber screen printing net is generally divided into polyester material and nylon material.The difference between the two is that the silk screen of polyester mesh has a low elongation rate, the mesh is less deformable, and the printing accuracy is high.The nylon mesh has its elasticity and can be applied to non-planar material printing, and it has the characteristics of wear resistance.From the weaving process, we can also be divided into plain weave and twill weave. The plain weave has the characteristic of high printing accuracy relative to the diagonal weave, and the twill weave has its high tension characteristics.
Screen printing is China's intangible cultural heritage.Screen printing originated in China and has a history of over 2,000 years.Screen printing is a kind of stencil printing and is called four printing methods together with plain printing, embossing, and gravure printing.Through the squeegee's squeezing, the ink and the pigment are transferred to the substrate through the mesh part of the graphic part to form the same picture and manuscript as the manuscript. This is the whole process of screen printing,it is very simple and magical!The strong application scope of screen printing has made it popular with posters, business cards, merchandise signs, and textiles and dyeing textiles. It is a very common printing method.
Screen printing process
1. Screen printing mesh file output.Document layered design.Because the narrow screen printing can only monochrome printing and monochrome printing, so the designer on the document need to be layered.
2. Film film production.The film in the screen printing is like the film of the photograph, but the film in the screen printing changes the carrier of development from photo paper into the screen of the photosensitive resin.
3. Making a screen printing stencil.The most important is the choice of the mesh size.Screen printing mesh in production generally uses 100-400 mesh.
The scope of screen printing mesh applications is very extensive. In addition to water and air (including other liquids and gases), any kind of object can be used as a substrate.Paper printing,Art printing - advertisements, pictorials, calendars, lanterns, etc.Plastic printing,plastic film - vinyl toys, school bags, plastic bags and so on.Wood products printing,crafts - lacquerware, wooden crafts, toys.Glass,ceramic products printing,glass - mirrors, glass plates, cups, bottles, etc.
