Precious metal inks for direct screening

Our direct screen-printing inks can be applied onto substrates using a variety of direct printing techniques. They are a solution of organic precious metal and non-precious metal compounds and resins (and/or waxes) in a mixture of organic solvents and essential oils.

Bottles with screen-printed inks

Product features include:

  • Free from ozone depleting chemicals, lead, cadmium and other heavy metals
  • Good printing properties
  • Lustrous metallic sheen with excellent brilliance
  • Good adherence and general performance on most substrates.

The thickness of the precious metal ink application is critical to the achievement of satisfactory, economical results. Application should be as even as possible - and please be aware that the end result of the fired decoration very much depends on both the application and the substrate.
