Ink for printing on HDPE shadecloth

Simple screenprinting of shadenet can be done with Shadenet Ink for printing on HDPE shadecloth.  It is water-based and applied using normal screenprinting techniques.  Ideal factory conditions are long tables, up to 1.5m wide as most logos can be seen from a distance and are usually longer than taller

Keep the print simple - one colour, big and bold and a good contrast between colour of shadenet and print so it really stands out.  Because the ink for printing on HDPE shadecloth is water-based, the most important thing is to make sure it is touch dry before applying the next coat.  to stop it coming through the back of the shadenet you can apply a couple of clear coats to fill holes and provide a good key for subsequent colours.

The flexibility of Shadenet Ink for printing on HDPE shadecloth is good so that the end product can stretch over the structure, be it fencing, scaffolding, shadeports, shade structures, towers, bandstands etc.   The ink is designed to stretch and be flexible to ensure the longevity and that the brand gets maximum exposure.

To prepare the Shadenet Ink for printing on HDPE shadecloth you need to mix 10% thickener for water based products into the clear base.  For printing white make up 700g clear base with 300g white pigment (standard water based pigment ) to make 1Kg white colour.

to do the printing, do two passes of clear base and dry it with hair-dryers for about ten minutes until dry enough to do another coat.  Two more passes of clear base and dry it with hair-dryers for about ten minutes until dry enough to do another coat.  Then two passes colour and dry it with hair-dryers for about ten minutes until dry enough to do another coat.  And another two if necessary to get a good finish or for the lower density shadenet

A good strong table tack so the shadenet sticks to the table well and a 31 screen for good coverage.  Use hardener on the screen because the shadenet is rough and the film will break away after use.  A round squeegee gives better coverage and a flat squeegee for better edges.  Use a snap-off at between 2mm and 5mm.

You need to have shade cloth lowest density 80% and upwards . . at 80% you will struggle to close all the holes and may have a fine pinprick effect.  You can rather not close up the holes and leave the holes open to lower wind resistance and save on ink and printing costs.  This is ideal for construction sites.
