Water Based Silkscreening Ink for Printing on HDPE Shade Cloth

 




Recent Company News

We have developed and enhanced the Shadenet Ink water based silkscreening ink for printing on HDPE shade cloth.  By shade cloth we mean the high density polyethylene knitted substrate that comes in 50m rolls and widths of up to 3m.  This shade cloth is made by various companies and goes by a number of brand or product names, some of which are Coolaroo, Gale Pacific, Alnet, Cooltone, Knittex, Multiknit, z25, DriZ.

The water based
silkscreening ink for printing on HDPE shade cloth can be used on any of these brand name products.  They vary in density, which affects how much ink you use.  Lower densities have more holes, so a lot of the ink is left on the table.  Best to put down a few pulls of clear so that the image doesn't show through the back. 

Otherwise, it's pretty straightforward using Shadenet Ink water based silkscreening ink for printing on HDPE shade cloth.  It behaves much like any other water based screenprinting ink.  Careful not to leave it in the screen too long . . don't be deceived by the fact that it's water based.  When it's dry it sticks like crazy. 

Water Based Silkscreening Ink for Printing on HDPE Shade Cloth

The drying time for water based silkscreening ink for printing on HDPE shade cloth is a bit longer than solvent ink and it can be force dried with a strong hairdryer . . watch out, the HDPE will distort at about 75 degrees.  This is something many a screenprinter of knitted HDPE shade cloth has found out to their shock and horror when their people thought they would speed up the drying process by using  a heat gun!  Take it slow, rather  . . the mission of making up new nets and screenprinting them all over again is a mission.

These days, everything is done last minute, so there is seldom time to redo a job and meet the deadline.  Rather take your time and do it properly the first time.  It will save you money and time in the long run.  So if you are looking for water based silkscreening ink for printing on HDPE shade cloth, then Shadenet Ink is specifically designed for this purpose.  No other inks work as well, give you the coverage, and are as durable and flexible.
