Screen white enables overprinting

Pulse Roll Label Products has launched SF010, a UV curable, silicone-free opaque white ink for rotary screen printing. It is formulated to permit use as a first-down white for subsequent overprinting by flexo, letterpress and offset, as well as screen inks or varnishes.

“White inks for screen printing normally include silicone compounds to enhance ink flow-out and surface evenness,” says technical manager Chris Price. “However, silicone additives often make it difficult to overprint with other processes such as flexo inks and varnishes. Our new white formulation means that customers will be able to successfully overprint on a wider range of processes and materials.”

Optimised for high opacity and whiteness, SF010 can be used with a number of screens. A wide range of substrates can be processed, including coated/treated PE/PP, PVC, polyester and some foils, subject to recommendations.
