These inks are available for the screen or pad printing of silicone rubber. They are supplied as a 2 pack consisting of Sylub Ink and Sylub Catalyst.
Mix 10 parts of ink to 1 – 1.5 parts of catalyst by weight. The silicone rubber surface should be clean and degreased by wiping with iso-propyl alcohol and allowed to dry completely. The rubber may now be printed in the normal way with the prepared mixed ink. Care should be taken not to handle the rubber surface or allow any grease, oils or contaminants to come into contact with it. Mixed ink and catalyst should be printed and cured within 4 hours of mixing. Duration of cure will depend on the system of heating used but could be 20 minutes at 200C. Adhesion could if necessary be further improved by extending the curing time.
Store unmixed ink and catalyst below 27C for maximum shelf life.
