Product Info

  • The respective suitability of printing pads are generally displayed in different colors of silicone.

  • We provide a variety of printing pads for different industries in pad printing.

  • Hardness: 0%-70%, physical catalog allows you to touch and preset the preferable hardness of printing pad before ordering. It also saves your time on looking for the appropriate pad and increases productivity and yield rate.

  • Red pad: High hardness, good ink absorption, suitable for printing non-bubble images and processing on textured surfaces.

  • Blue pad: good solvent resistance; suitable for mass production due to long range of use

  • White pad: good flexibility; available for making softer pads; good ink pick-up

 

Profiles and Sizes of Printing Pad

  • Normal solutions based on cliché image size and design

  • For pad printing multiple fine lines of a cliché image, the better solutions are types of V-shape profiles.

  • For pad printing bigger dimension of a cliché image, the better solutions are softer, bigger and flat profiles.

  • For pad printing multiple indivisual cliché images, the better solutions are cluster profiles to keep better print job.

  • When pressing a printing pad, the print job may not be applicable after reaching a certain level. Therefore, when selecting the type of printing pad according to the printing size, do not choose one too small unless there is interference next to the printed object.

  • When using a harder printing pad, speed of ink pick-up should be faster than velocity of flow to keep away from flooding.

  • In some cases, there are air bubbles in printing ink, the better solutions are using harder pad to help removing bubbles when printing.

 

Ink Absorption of Printing Pad

  • The better solvent-resistance, the worse absorption.

  • New printing pads will run a much better print job after a few use.

  • Pretest printing and confirm opacity of the ink. When a printing pad is not applicable to completely absorb the ink under a noraml range of volatile rate, use dry cloth to dip some detergent (e.g. ethanol or cliché detergent), and apply onto the surface of pad.

  • Though wiping the surface of printing pad may help the ink absorption, it may reduce the ink deposit at the same time.

  • Note that longer down time may cause dried ink on cliché plate and lead to incomplete print job.

 

Ink Deposit of Printing Pad

  • After running the peak of the usage, the longer term of use, the worse ink deposit because of continuous corrosion and friction on the surface of pad.

  • The faster volatilization, the better ink deposit (note that incomplete print job may result from short volatile speed; pretest beforehand)

  • After picking up the ink, hold the ink for 0.3-1.5 seconds before ink transfer. As aforesaid, this act makes the ink a bit drier and lead to better ink deposit. Especially adding an external drying method, e.g. a hair dryer, can improve the print job (this is suitable for lower temperature environment.)

  • The picked up ink provides the best timing of ink deposit and can continuously operates more than 10000 prints a day.

  • Basically complete ink deposit every print
