• Pad inks TP 253 are solvent based pad printing inks. They can be processed as 1-component and (alternatively) as 2-component ink with hardener.
• Processed as 1-component ink TP 253 dries physically, as 2-component ink physically chemically-reactive and results in a satin gloss finish.
• Processing as 2-component ink will significantly increase ink adhesion and resistance properties on difficult substrates such as synthetic materials.
• This ink system shows a good mechanical and chemical resistance against laundry detergents (up to 60°C) and chemical dry cleaning agents.
• TP 253 prints exhibit good flexibility and elasticity.
• TP 253 inks are also suitable for long-term outdoor applications.
• Note: Because of the variety of substrates, pre-tests are essential. There is a great variety of different finishes and coatings influencing printability, especially on synthetic materials.
