Printing on glass using advanced ink technology

although glass is fragile, it is still a very versatile material. It has many working pistons and force measuring pistons with excellent friction performance, such as mechanical resistance of lion bright teeth, year-round transparency, durability, etc. the most important thing is that it can be recycled many times and still produce high-quality products

in recent years, some companies, such as Coates Wiederhold in the UK, have successfully printed silk on glass, and the ink technology is becoming more and more perfect. In the 1980s, the company used z/gl silk printing ink to print on glass, and the ease of operation and safety of use were more than ever before, making a breakthrough

z/gl ink is a two-component silk printing ink system, which can be dried at room temperature or in an oven at 140 ℃ for 20min (minutes). Printing on glass with z/gl ink has good adhesion and water resistance. For example, the glass water cup printed by this method remains unchanged after 30 times of dishwasher cleaning. In fact, this has reached the performance level that only ceramic ink can achieve, and ceramic ink needs to be baked in an oven at 600 ~ 800 ℃. The inks produced by Coates Wiederhold company are also connected with computer printers to realize full computer control and print standard experimental reports; The experimental data curve can be dynamically displayed by Windows operating system, and the experimental data can be deleted and added at will, which makes the operation of the curve easier relaxed. Curve traversal can be performed anytime, anywhere Overlay Detach Zoom A major advantage of full electronic display monitoring such as printing is that using the company's c-mix2000 series and adding their standard color ink, you can easily match any color, which is suitable for multi-color printing of advertising materials. If you use imitation corrosion and transparent tones, you can produce various surface effects

constantly seeking excellent products

z/gl ink is a two-component system, which has aroused great repercussions in the printing industry due to its good performance and versatility. However, their drying time is really long. It takes at least 8 ~ 12h (hours) at room temperature and about 20min (minutes) in the oven. With the increasing pressure on printers to shorten the production cycle, it is obvious that a new ink system must be developed. From then on, a UV silk printing ink that can be dried in a few seconds and used in small UV drying equipment came out. Moreover, due to the fast drying time, the production volume has increased greatly. At present, it has reached the production capacity of 5-color or 6-color printing. This uv/gl ink system has all the excellent characteristics of UV ink, such as fast drying time and less pollution to the working environment due to the absence of solvents. At present, the company has c-mix series of various colors, which can match any hue according to user needs. Uv/gl ink series can be used for multi-color printing of various glass surfaces

another breakthrough in glass printing technology is the company's development of crystal GLS ink system. Recently, the ink has been exhibited at glasstec international glass exhibition held in Dusseldorf. Crystal GLS is a very general glass and ceramic printing ink. It can be used as either a single component ink or a two-component ink after adding GLS film hardener. One of the main advantages of two-component ink is that the product is more washable

with the increasing demand for glass and ceramic advertising products, Coates Wiederhold has developed tp218/gl ink system, which has strong versatility, high printing quality and good durability. It is suitable for the printing of glass water cups, ashtrays, point of sale advertising, commercial advertising, ceramics and hard plastic products

a window to the future

in the field of silk printing and pad printing inks, Coates Wiederhold has taken the lead in the industry, and is often ahead of users' ideas. They have foresight and continue to open up new fields of science and technology. Coates Wiederhold has a well-equipped laboratory in Nuremberg, Germany, which can test new materials under very strict conditions and solve the technical problems in silk printing and pad printing for many users
