TEXSOL 600 Eco – textile printing photoemulsion with globally-valid ECO PASSPORT

The world's first photoemulsion that meets the criteria of the global Öko-Tex Standard 100.

 

Introducing TEXSOL ® 600 Eco –a water-resistant two-component photoemulsion for textile printing screens with a globally-valid ECO PASSPORT

 

Why did we develop TEXOL 600 Eco? Quite simply - many well-known producers of branded T-shirts, imprinted sportswear and fashion textiles require print producers - and even their own print production - to use products and production equipment free from all contaminants and therefore harmless for the user, whether they are buyers or wearers.

 

During the printing process, textiles come into physical contact with the screen printing stencil, and thus directly with the emulsion which, of course, is an integral part of the printing screen.

Accurate bonding with printable adhesives

Thanks to further developments in quality, screenprintable pressure-sensitive adhesives have made their mark in many industrial applications. Which screenprintable pressure-sensitive adhesives are available on the market and where are their preferred areas of application?

 

For processing liquid adhesives, the screen printing method has established itself alongside the conventional systems like curtain coating, spraying, anilox and knife. The specific advantages of using the screenprinting method for processing adhesives was already recognised in the early 1970’s. Today pressure-sensitive adhesives, which have been printed on substrates can be found in many industrial areas of application, as for example, the automotive industry, household white goods and the electronic industry. More can be found in the production of optical displays as well as the advertising and sign making industry.

Ways to extend the service life of stencil cleaning agents

by Manuel Schöllig, Product Manager CLEANLINE, KISSEL + WOLF GmbH

 

In the cleaning of a screenprinting stencil, a variety of chemicals are used which vaporise, are discharged into wastewater or are subject to expensive special waste disposal procedures. From an environmental and economic point of view, it is obviously desirable to reduce these polluting factors to a minimum.

 

Screen printers have several different technologies at their disposal, which will be presented here in detail with their respective advantages and disadvantages.

 

SBQ-based Screenprinting Emulsion Technology

Dr. Roland Studenroth, KISSEL + WOLF GmbH

 

 In the course of the 80s, a new technology from Japan edged its way into the screenprinting market. This was the technology of single-component emulsions based on SBQ. The abbreviation SBQ is derived from the product name "Stilbenium quarternized" and specifically means that a water-soluble, UV light-sensitive stilbene group is chemically bonded with the polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) contained in emulsions (see Figure 1), so that for light sensitizing a second component, such as diazo is no longer needed. Because of it being a single-component product, the SBQ emulsion technology first experienced a boom, but also contributed at the same time to the perfectioning of the alternative dual-cure diazo technology. Today both technologies are firmly established in the market and complement each other, i.e. there is dual-cure technology also found in SBQ-sensitized products and to achieve specific properties, SBQ emulsions can be additionally mixed with diazo compounds.

KIWOPRINT UV 92 - UV-curable pressure-sensitive adhesive for technical applications

KISSEL + WOLF GmbH, market leading manufacturer of screenable adhesives, now offers KIWOPRINT UV 92, which is a new UV pressure-sensitive adhesive for decorative foils, front panels and visual instrument panels.

 

Due to its good tack properties, it is also suitable for labels and decals.

 

Typical applications include:

  • Visual instrument panels for the automotive and electronic fields
  • Decals for bicycle and vehicle decoration
  • Labels and stickers for indoor and outdoor use

The adhesive’s fast curing is a special advantage giving short cycle times.
