REXI silk screen glass is another description of ceramic fritted glass. Screen printing is a processing to frit ceramic onto the surface, to decorate the products. In China silk screen glass factory, it has diverse of colors and figures, such as ripples, geometric figures and so on. It can be produced according to the requests of any individual customer.
Glass ceramic, is a paste mixture made from pigment material and adhesion material. Pigment materials is composited from inorganic pigments, low melting point flux (lead glass powder), adhesion material is commonly known in the screen printing industry as a plate oil by China silk screen glass manufacturers. The products after the printing phase should be put into to stove of 520 ~ 600℃, the ceramic printed on the surface can be consolidated, forming a colorful decorative patterns. If we use the silk screen printing together with other processing methods, we can get more desirable product. For example, the usage of polishing, engraving, etching and other methods before or after printing on the surface processing, can obviously improve the printing effect. Silk screen glass price is higher than ordinary glass because of the process.
Silk screen printing process of silk screen glass is according to the principle of screen printing, firstly printing ink to the surface, and then using the ink curing measures to make printed pattern durable. The process is as follows: Stretching → sizing → drying → plate burning → development → drying, then flat glass → cutting → grounding → cleaning and drying → printing → sintering.
1. Glass suitable for printing cut according to user requirements, can be a regular shape, or irregular shape, and then grounding the edge, washing, drying to stand-by. We should pay attention that there must be no water marks on the surface.
2. The screen we choose for silk screen glass is the same as general screen printing plate, we choose synthetic fiber screen, stainless steel screen and natural fiber screen. When printing general pigment, the screens above are all suitable, we use cheap synthetic fiber screen commonly, when decorating with silver or gold, we cannot choose stainless steel screen.
3. The better frame selection for silk screen glass aluminum frame, its size should be larger than the pattern, the distance from the outer edge of the pattern to the frame should be between 70 ~ 100mm. Besides its strength is very important, it should have enough rigidity in the horizontal direction.
4. After screen and screen frame selection, to combine the two part, that is stretching. Stretching has a lot of ways. Silk screen glass stretching requires uniform tension, the net latitude and longitude lines to remain vertical.
Silk screen glass has extensive applications and market prospects. It is widely used in all corners of the world: you can easily find silk screen glass in showcase, the building inner partition, building landscaping, car windshield, mosaic glass and other places. They are also widely used in furniture decoration and game tools, as well as countless decorative and artistic creation. It can also be used to temporarily cover the non-graphic part of the surface or to print a preservative and other additives in parts of the surface to protect it from etching or frosting. Sometimes, people also rely on the strong cover ability of screen printing, such as the glass printed with a thin layer of conductive material being used to make windows anti-icing (frost) device.
In fact, due to the rapid development of screen printing in the area of large-format flat glass decoration, printing equipment manufacturers are also constantly improving to meet the increasingly demanding printing requirements, resulting in many of the most flexible equipment is widely used by China silk screen glass suppliers.
