Boston Industrial Solutions, Inc. annoucnes the arrival of the Natron™ ST Series inks for pad printing onto soft touch, rubber, nylon, textiles and synthetic products. Examples of applications include soft touch pens, neck labels, rubber, nylon and synthetics.
What is soft touch? Soft touch is a coating applied to plastics and rubber substrates to give the coated products a smooth, soft 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 soft touch ink line.
This new pad printing inks for soft touch and synthetics features fast drying time, high opacity and excellent print-ability. 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 inks.
The ST Series inks for soft touch comes in 20 high opacity standard colors and is available in 1kg containers. Custom colors are also available within eight business hours upon request.
Generally, the Natron ST series will air dry at 68°F in 20-30 seconds and will achieve full crosslinking within 24 – 48 hours. With catalyst added, full cross-link is achieved in 24 – 36 hours. Accelerated drying and curing 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).
Natron ST Series pad printing inks not only solves the challenge of printing onto nylons, rubber, and soft touch substrates but it also offer economic value, durability, and vibrant prints.
