How to achieve the best results in screen printing with our effect pigments

Effect pigments in screen printing give silk-like shimmer or glitter impressions on fine foils, cards, and papers, and also on textiles and many other materials.

Adapting the mesh size to the particle size

For optimum results, use compatible screen mesh and effect pigments. As a rule of thumb, the mesh size of the screen must be at least 1.5 to 2 times larger than the largest effect pigment particle being used. This means, for example, that a screen with a mesh size of 90 to 120 μm should be used for Iriodin® 100 Silver Pearl with a particle size of 10 to 60 μm.

Squeegees with 60° to 70° shore hardness are recommended.
