Introducing the Natron™ ST series inks
Boston Industrial Solutions, Inc. introduces the Natron™ ST series pad printing ink for soft touch, rubber, nylon, synthetics and most soft touch substrates. The ST series was formulated as a screen and pad printing ink.
The ability to adhere onto most soft touch materials makes the Natron™ ST Series ink line a revolutionary screen printing and pad printing ink. Examples of products that can be used for pad printing with these inks for soft touch are, soft touch pens or rubberized soft touch stylus, soft touch cell phone covers, etc.
What is soft touch? Soft touch is a coating applied to plastics and rubber substrates to give the coated products a rubberized, smooth, soft to touch feel. The soft touch coating makes it hard for printing inks to adhere on products. To solve this challenge, Boston Industrial Solutions, Inc. formulated the ST series pad printing ink for soft touch printing.
Pad printing inks for soft touch
This new pad printing inks for soft touch and synthetics features fast drying time, high opacity and excellent printability. Cured prints are also able to resist rubbing, machine washing, and scratch tests. The Natron™ ST series ink line is also easy to work with just like the Natron SE silicone ink line.
ST Series pad printing inks for soft touch come in 20 high opacity standard colors. Custom colors are also available within eight business hours upon request. These inks are available in 1kg containers.
Generally, the ST series will air dry at 68°F in 20-30 seconds and will achieve full cure within 18 – 48 hours. With catalyst added, full cross-link is achieved in 24 – 36 hours. Accelerated drying can be achieved introducing heat at 150 – 225°F for approximately 60 seconds to two minutes. (Safety caution! Wait for the hot product to cool down before touching). Introducing heat also gives the ink durability.
The ST Series pad printing inks for soft touch solves the challenge of printing onto nylons, rubber, and soft touch substrates. The inks also offer economic value, durability, and vibrant prints.
