In the market, we often see the silicone products printed with characters, and the effect of light leak, now share how to realize the silicone products printed with characters. To implement the process of three characters, there are three types,for the screen printing process, laser carving process, glue process, each itself has advantages and disadvantages, so according to the actual demand for products when you need to decide to choose which method, we suggest no devotion to complex process, select the most suitable for their own design products and to achieve the required is the most important thing.
- Make a screenplate accordingly
- The location of the characters on the screen printing screen is blank <it can penetrate silicone’s ink > , the position of the characters all use photosensitive plastic to seal,<it isimpermeable ink>.
- The silicone’sinkis in a screen plate, the characters on the screen plate is aligned the position of the characters on the silicone products.
- The screen printing scraper with siliconeink scrapsthe position which needs silk printing on a silicone products,
- Siliconeink on the position of the blank will penetrate through the screen plateof the surface of the silicone products, characters are formed on the surface of the silicone products.
Silk screen process easy operation, low cost, but relatively low friction life character, character friction life too strict silicone products is also needed in the surface coating layer of wear PU, to improve the wear life of silicone products.
- Transparent or translucent color,color of silicone keypads
- Then on the surface of silicone keypads required for spraying a layer of color ink, ink demanded features to be carved printing ink.
- Then use a laser carving machine(laser marking machine) on the surface of silicone keypadsfor laser processing, thus forming the characters and pervious to light.
Laser carving technology can make the products can be in the dark silicone buttons conditions can also ease of use, only need to install a led lamp in the button at the bottom of the light source
Third, glue products
- Silicone mould to make the shapes of the characters in the < silicone products after forming the key form > the groove of the required character
- The silicone ink drops into the groove
- Through the ink to dry in the groove of the tunnel furnace, make its solid adsorption on the silicone products into the groove of the characters, to form a character.
Drops of ink craft can make the surface of the siliconel products characters basically does not exist the possibility of wear and tear.
But sometimes, may be something wrong with the silicone rubber products,such as the
