Metallic pigments for screen printing

Screen printing gives the advantage to print on a very wide range of surfaces such as paper,  cardboard, plastic, leather, textile, metal.

Very performing metallic pigments will provide an additional advantage to the gloss and metallic effect which is optimal when using coarse metallic pigments with a D50 up to 40-50µm.

In order to avoid the clogging of the screen mesh at any time, it is recommended to use grades with a D90 value which is 3 times smaller than the mesh size.
