SERICOL POLYPLAST PY SCREEN PRINTING INK
Polyplast PY is a fast drying, gloss inks system, suitable for printing onto many flexible and rigid plastics, including PVC, ABS, Acrylics, and many others. The product is highly flexible and suitable for Vacuum Forming applications. Polyplast PY has recently been improved, so that it is considered Non-Flammable, and no longer needs to be transported or stored under DG compliant regulations.
Certain plastics may be impregnated with lubricants which, like plasticiser migration, may impair adhesion and block resistance even a considerable period after printing. This can be overcome by wiping the surface with White Spirit before printing. Surface adhesive left from protective papers on rigid PVC and acrylic sheets should be thoroughly removed in line with supplier’s instructions. Certain plastics can become brittle when printed, possibly to the point of shattering, often only after several weeks. It is therefore essential to check compatibility between ink and plastic to guard against this problem.
Polyplast PY inks may be used to produce doublesided stickers. Prior to such use please consult your Fujifilm supplier. Owing to the complex nature of this type of work printers must satisfy themselves, before starting a production run, that their substrate and production method are compatible with the ink. PY500 Obliterating Grey is recommended as the barrier coat between the first and the second side.
