Although our ink ranges cover most substrates, we can reformulate to obtain better adhesion in our onsite Research and Development.
SPECTRA VINYL GLOSS & MATT - Self adhesive vinyl’s and coated polyesters, Rigid PVC, ABS, CAB. (for PETG use Spectra-Ply)
Thinning & Coverage - SPECTRA VINYL GLOSS & MATT inks should be thinned with SVT Thinner 11011 up to 30%. For detail work or printing in hot conditions use a SVR Retarder 11012. For printing Rigid PVC use our SPRVT Rigid Vinyl Thinner. Using a 100T Mesh and thinning 25% an approximate coverage of 70 m2/ltr may be expected.
Drying - Solvent evaporation, air drying. Cleaning – Use our Universal Screenwash.
CORRI-KEY - Formulated for a wide range of substrates such as coated polypropylene, coated polyester, fluted board, rigid PVC, ABS, CAB, polycarbonates.
Thinning & Coverage - CORRI-KEY inks should be thinned using the CVT Thinner 11035 . For detail work and/or printing in hot conditions use CVR Retarder 11034.
Drying - Solvent evaporation, air drying. Cleaning - We recommend Universal Screenwash or Screenwash Extra for cleaning screens and equipment.
NYLO-KEY - Nylon, clothing , umbrellas, boat sails and leather.
Thinning - NYLO-KEY inks can be thinned up to 30% using NKT Thinner 11020. For detail work use NKR Retarder 11021. A 55 T mesh may have to be used for opacity.
Drying – Solvent evaporation, air drying. Cleaning – Use our Universal Screenwash.
SPECTRA 2PAC - Most plastics, glass, metals(coated or uncoated), wood, chipboard, many laminates, hardboard and even printed circuit boards.
Mixing Catalysts - SPECTRA 2PAC is a 2 - pack system. At temperatures up to about 20°C the mixture will remain printable for about 8 hours.
Always stir the catalyst thoroughly before mixing with the colours. Mixing ratios vary according to the catalyst selected.
Mixing ratios by weight; Gloss Catalyst Matt Catalyst. Flexible Catalyst
Colours 5 : 1 3 : 1 2 : 1
Metallic s 3 : 1 1 : 1 1 : 1
These ratios can be varied according to individual needs.
Thinning & Coverage – SPECTRA 2PAC inks can be thinned up to 20% with a SPECTRA 2PAC Thinner 11011 and/or SPECTRA 2PAC Retarder 11012.
Drying -Dry by stoving for best results.
Metals & Glass - 10 minutes @ 130°C approx
Plastics - 15 minutes @ 80°C - 90°C approx
Cleaning – We would recommend our 11018, Screenwash extra cleaning screens.
SPECTRAFILM - Coated papers, posters, art paper, display boards, wood, and hardboard.
Thinning & Coverage - SPECTRAFILM inks can be thinned up to 30% with Thinner 11030 SFT, or for detail work, Retarder 11031 SFR.
Drying -Drying is by evaporation. Cleaning – Use our Universal Screenwash or Screenwash Extra for cleaning screens and equipment.
