If you are screenprinting shadenet or want to silkscreen shadenet then an ink has been developed for supply and use worldwide by Shadenet Ink.   The ink has been developed for durable adhesion to shadenet which cannot be silkscreened with normal screenprinting inks.  Shadenet Ink is a water-based polymer which is easily applied using normal screenprinting techniques.

The Shadenet Ink Clear Base liquid is a UV resistant polymer coating with very flexible properties, supplied to the appropriate viscosity for screenprinting on HDPE shadenet.  For screenprinting shadenet or want to silkscreen shadenet, Shadenet Ink Clear Base is designed for extreme durability and flexibility and additives promote high adhesion properties for application to HDPE shadenet.   Screenprinters can use their standard water based pigments for colouring.   The product has successfully been in use for over 5 years.  The clear base is simple to use for a screenprinter and can achieve any of the effects that can be seen on The Shadenet Ink Website.  The Shadenet Ink Clear Base is water-based and non-toxic and is supplied for export in 20 litre tins.

The printing process is the same as normal screenprinting.  The printing process for screenprinting shadenet (silkscreen shadenet) using water-based Shadenet Ink takes longer than screenprinting with solvent inks.  As it is a water-based ink the drying time is longer and because of its elasticity, the shadenet cannot be moved off the table during the printing process.   The printer can decide on the number of coats to apply to achieve the desired finish.   The more the holes are covered, the better the image quality.  However, in certain applications, ie the construction industry where 80% shadenet is a preference we have developed a lower cost one coat printing solution. The image is seen from a distance and therefore complete print coverage is less important.

Screenprinters can use their own water based pigments  and thickener for silkscreening shadenet (screenprinting shadenet) as they would usually do for other screenprinting.  Shadenet Ink supplies with the product, guidelines and some tips they have learned over the years.  Most effective strategy for shadenet suppliers and converters is to get a screenprinter nearby to contract to them exclusively and work with them to perfect it.  It is preferable that the screenprinter has computer design skills so he can do layouts (jpgs) for your customers.  Converters then sell the finished product and mark it up to the end user.

Packaging:             Supplied in 20litre drums - larger quantities can be shrink wrapped onto a pallet.

HS Code:               Shadenet ink clear base is water-based and not classified as hazardous, so no CAS number or HS code required
