TYPE KT Pad Printing and Screen Printing Ink

Characteristics:

Type KT is suitable for screen and pad printing

Ink Type:

1- or 2-component ink, gloss

Printing Media:

Polyethylene
Polypropylene
PVC
Paper
Nitrocellulose coatings
other materials after testing

Properties:

To be utilized as 1- or 2- components, also depending on requirements.
- Color has to be thoroughly mixed before use
- While overprinting do not flame pre-treat. If printing onto cartridge (mostly consisting of low pressure PE) add 3-5% hardener (700001) to obtain optimum impact resistance.
- Due to high printing speeds we recommend using jet thinner (700081) only. At high surrounding temperature and when printing fine lines and text we recommend the use of active retarder (700042).

Drying:

Air dried:room temperature 20 minutes, dust dry
Kiln dried: temperature approx. 140-160 F.,1-1½ minutes

Cross-Linking:

After 48 hours, complete spacing material resistance will be obtained.

ADDITIVES

Hardener: 700001, 1 part hardener, 20 parts ink
Through adding hardener an improvement on the
spacing material resistance can be obtained.
Thinner: 700030, slow thinner
200000 med. thinner
700035, med. thinner
735024, fast thinner
700081, jet-thinner

Retarder: 700010, retarder
700042, active retarder

Cleaner: 700093, universal cleaner

Adhesion200006 Adhesion Promoter "Pit Bull" can be used to achieve adhesion
Promoter:on most polypropylenes without pretreatment. Testing required.

Pot Life:

Room temperature: 24 - 48 hours (with hardener) depending on color shades.
High humidity and heat reduce the pot life.

Storage:

For unopened original packs there is a storage stability
of 1 to 2 years.

Colors:

1 - 29 according to universal color chart
30 - 33 silver and gold ink types

Form of Delivery:

Colors: 1 kg can, 5 kg tank, 25 kg tank

Hardener:1 kg can, 5 kg tank
