PROCESSES AND INKS
DIRECT SCREEN PRINTING
It is a millenary printing process: an emulsified cloth is used to transfer a drawing to a container. Allows the use of different types of inks to achieve various finishes and designs.
THERMOPLASTIC / CERAMIC INK
• It is the one with the greatest resistance. • Adheres to the container through the vitrification process: the paint has vitreous components that, when exposed to a temperature close to 600 C, fuses to the glass and perpetuates the decoration. • It is used for containers that are exposed to greater mechanical and chemical requirements. • Within these paintings, there are metallic ones such as: gold, platinum and silver; in addition to having most of the chromatic arc of full colors.
EPOXI AND UV INKS
• UV inks: are cured through the application of high-power ultraviolet light. • Epoxy: They cure at low temperatures. • It allows special inks: thermochromatic, fluorescent, black light, security inks, etc.
THERMOSENSITIVE / THERMOCHROMATIC
According to your product, you can choose: Thermosensitive to heat: When the hot liquid enters the cup, the impression in this ink changes color showing hidden messages or magic words ... whatever you like to highlight!
REACTIVE TO THE LIGHT
• Photosensitive: Change color with light. • Fluorescent: Fluorescent colors that are activated by UV light. • Phosphorescent: It is also charged with UV light and shines in the dark. • Viroazul: changes color with black light.
A colored foil is used that is transferred with heat to the container, obtaining metallic and holographic textures. It can be applied in line with screen printing to obtain complex designs.
• Spray de tintas orgánicas aplicadas modifican el color del envase. • Para lograr el secado de la tinta, la misma se pasa por un horno de curado a 200c. • Acabados brillantes, mate y degrade de colores. • Permite la impresión posterior UV/Epoxi y hotstamping.
It gives a velvety finish to the container, it can be applied to a drawing (silk-screen printing) or to the complete container (spray).
