Silkscreening Ink for Printing on HDPE Shade Cloth


Recent Company News

Silkscreening is - according to Wikipedia - a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The stencil transfers ink through the open areas of mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate.   Now there is silkscreening ink for printing on HDPE shade cloth.  Using your usual roller or squeegee and by moving it across the stencil the ink is forced past the threads of the woven mesh in the open areas. 

The shade cloth is easily printed using silkscreening ink for printing on HDPE shade cloth.  The adhesion is good and durability is suited to outdoor conditions.  The combination of shade cloth and Shadenet Ink is great for outdoor branding.   Shadenet Ink can be applied using the process known as screen printing, silkscreen, seriography, and serigraph.

According to Wikipedia there is considerable discussion about the process, and the various terms for what is essentially the same technique that we use for printing on HDPE shade cloth.

There is apparently much confusion around the popular traditional reference to the process of screen printing as silkscreen printing. We call it silkscreening ink for printing on HDPE shade cloth or ink for screenprinting on shadenet.  We have more confusion around the terms shadenet, shade net, shadecloth and shade cloth depending on which country we are marketing and selling Shadenet Ink to. 

Why the silk! traditionally, silk was used for screen-printing, hence the name silk screening. Nowadays, synthetic and usually polyester threads are used in the screen printing process.   Silkcreening is quite an amazing process and we are proud to be associated with the art of (call it what you like) screenprinting or silkscreening ink for printing on HDPE shade cloth.

So if you are looking for the best in silkscreening ink for printing on HDPE shade cloth then give us a shout.  We supply the best screenprinting ink for silkscreen printing on HDPE shade cloth.
