The characteristics of screen printing can be summarized as follows:
① Screen printing can use many types of inks. Namely: oily, water-based, synthetic resin emulsion, powder and other types of inks.
②The layout is soft. The screen printing layout is soft and has a certain flexibility not only for printing on soft objects such as paper and cloth, but also for printing on hard objects, such as glass, ceramics, etc.
③Silk-screen printing has low printing force. Since the pressure used in printing is small, it is also suitable for printing on fragile objects.
④The ink layer is thick and the covering power is strong.
⑤It is not restricted by the surface shape and area of the substrate. It can be seen from the foregoing that screen printing can not only print on flat surfaces, but also on curved or spherical surfaces; it is not only suitable for printing on small objects, but also for printing on larger objects. This printing method has great flexibility and wide applicability.
