PM Type Pad Printing Ink
NOTE: Read Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) Prior To Use
Pad Printing Ink Type PM is a single-component product supplied in paste form. Thinner ( if needed ) should be thoroughly mixed with the ink prior to using. During printing, the ink viscosity may be adjusted with thinner (if needed). A retarder may be added to slow drying rate during printing (normally for high room temperatures or multi-color use). Recommended room temperature: 70-78 degrees F. Recommended room humidity 30-50 %
ADDITIVES: (See Additives Chart for more listings)
THINNER B (5 to 20 % by weight) Faster
VD THINNER (5 To 20 % by weight) Medium
THINNER BGA (5 To 20 % by weight) Slower
TPD RETARDER (1 To 3 % by weight)
DRYING & CURING: (See Ink Drying & Curing Times Chart )
Ink TYPE PM dries to the touch within 15 – 30 seconds at room temperature. Drying time may be reduced with forced hot air at 200 – 400 degrees F. Normally, full cure is achieved after one to two days depending on curing temperature time; and humidity. Heat curing is necessary for better adhesion and performance results.
