Market leading screen printing squeegee

 

What makes Unitex screen printing squeegees the best:

  • Extremely low chemical absorption from modern ink systems

  • Eliminates/significantly slows down the risk of squeegee deformation

  • Longer print runs and less downtime

  • Ultra sharp printing edge that provides exceptional print quality and accuracy

  • Consistently sharp printing edge which is capable of depositing printed layers accurately between 70µm and 10µm (microns)

  • Reduce ink usage and screen breakages

  • Unrivalled quality and industry leading tight dimensional tolerances - every squeegee is physically and mechanically tested

  • Consistent quality ennsures the squeegees are fit for purpose every time

  • Drastically reduces aadditional printing set-up time that can result from poor quality squeegees

  • Exceptional abrasion resistance

  • Significantly reducees high squeegee usage and additional downtime that can result from low cost squeegees

  • Very cost effective - long predictable squeegee life/significant reduction in scrap

 

Brilliant printing quality and accuracy

  • Unitex Squeegees can offer up to a 47% cost saving on your ink usage

  • Independent tests carried out – report available on request

  • Cost Versus Benefit

  • Extended print runs

  • Quicker set up timeset

UNITEX MARATHON - Specialist squeegees for screen printing professionals

Ideal for decorative/personalised printing applications such as textiles, gra

UNITEX MARATHON squeegees have superb quality of screen printing results with a very cost effective

It is made from MDI (Diphenylmethane Diisocyanate) technology. Designed to give superior resistance to degradation by commonly used inks, solvents and monomers used in modern printing processes.

  • Low swelling characteristics to solvent cleaners and inks

  • Ideal for UV ink systems

  • Long squeegee life – good abrasion resistance

  • Does not wear screens

  • Consistent product quality and tight dimensional tolerances

 

All screen printing applications covered

Glass

Automotive - Architectural

  • A high value finished product demands a high quality squeegee for perfect results and reduced product defects

  • Unitex Ulon HP Composite 500/1 (55-60º Shore A) hardness is ideal when a large amount of ink is required onto the substrate with good tip control

  • Unitex® Ulon HP 500/4 (70-75º Shore A) hardness when the definition detail is fine

 

Bottles and Containers

Plastic - Glass Packaging

  • Unitex Marathon S-Cut and D-Cut squeegees play an important role in meeting the increasing demands on the bottle printer. S-Cut and D-Cut profiles provide the benefit of a sharper edge for an accurate ink deposit, in addition to maximum definition

  • For greater tip control use S-Cut and D-Cut profiles with Lan Land indicates a flat tip which is normally 1mm

 

Graphics

Plastic - PVC - Decals - Vinyl - Paper - Packaging Labels

  • For printing graphics the squeegee must have the right amount of flexing to transfer ink correctly through the screen and have good solvent/UV ink resistance. Also, it must be free from surface imperfections and irregularities, especially for high quality graphics

  • Typically for high resolution graphics a 75 Shore A (or harder) squeegee is used

  • Many printers use the Unitex Marathon Triple 75 Shore A or higher when high print pressure is required to ensure fine detail. As it is a multi purpose squeegee can be used on many different types of machines which cuts down on inventory

  • Generally lower hardness squeegees are used for larger mesh openings

 

CD/DVD

Screen Printing

  • The CD/DVD industry require squeegees with high durability, close tolerances and a wide range of sizes

  • The print quality must be high with maximum definition and machine set up times kept to a minimum

  • Unitex Ulon HP and Unitex Marathon are available in a range of sizes, from length 100mm to 3600mm and  width 50mm

  • They are both ideal for high speed printing applications and one to five colour processes

 

Textiles

Most Substrates - Decorative/Personalised Printing

  • Screen printing can cope with intricate designs on silk through to durable bold prints on a wide range of fabric based substrates. Inks range from water or solvent based pigments and dyes to plastisol types

  • Textiles such as T-shirts often require a large amount of ink deposited, so a softer squeegee is required such as Unitex Marathon 60 and 65 Shore A

  • For finer meshes, increase the hardness of the squeegee to reduce ink deposited and increase detail

The profile S-Cut squeegees combines with the advantages of Plain and D-Cut squeegees and they are suitable for requirement of medium squeegee pressure.
  • 55°-65° squeegees are softer which are suitable for printing on uneven surfaces but product lives are shorter than other ranges of durometer hardness

  • 65°-75° squeegees are in medium range of hardness which are suitable for printing on various materials. This range of hardness is the most common application for 80% of our customers

  • 75°-85° SH squeegees are harder which are suitable for the application that requires abrasion and solvent resistance squeegees for printing fine graphics
