Q&A
   SMI is a multipurpose ink made from the mixture of acrylic synthetic resin and pigments.It has mild scent, and it has a high efficiency in printing, adhesiveness and adaptabil to materials, as well as moisture and solvent resistance capabilities.
This ink proves to be multi-purpose ink for various plastic materials that are difficult for heat treatment. It is also considered as air drying type of ink.(SMI-G)
If adhesiveness is weak due to the surface of materials, hardener (K) is used as two-comp. ink to increase its strength in attachment. If materials require the nature of alcohol resistance, 300g load of pressure and one hundred times of rubbing are applied to the process to enhance the solvent resistance and methyl alcohol.This product uses high quality pigments, seventh to eighth level in its quality, so that it could last at least three to five years for indoor and outdoor purposes.(SMI-N)
Especially, strengthening of viscocity, covering power and transformations for PAD priting is good effects in PAD printing.

- Use after mixing hardener and ink well for ten minutes. Only a minute amount of hardener (5~10%) should be used;
   more  effective in mechanical mixing than manual mixing.
- Mixed ink and hardener becomes solidified after six to eight hours. Please use the appropriate amount.
- Set to touch for twenty to thirty minutes, full dry for at least 24 hours. Please avoid its attachment in 24 hours.
- Please conduct the adhesiveness test after 24 hours, and the adhesiveness will improve after two to three days.
- Use the remained hardener in a month if possible. Please keep out of the air when stored.

     MIRROR Ink is Baking type ink made by special synthetic resin and special metallic silver, which can generate a mirror effect on glass, PET, acrylic, and PMMA by the back printing on the transparent plastic film. Furthermore, the alternative effects include special metallic materials and hot stamping. Materials difficult for adhesion, such as undisposed PET (vacuum coating & hard coating), will necessitate the use of hardener. For glass, mirror 600 (one-component) and mirror 800 (two component) exist. For plastics, mirror 1000 (one-component) exist.

      IMD Ink is two-component heat hardening ink consist ed of special synthetic resin. This requires flexibility and material of ink safe to high-temperature and high-pressure during formation; it is to adopt injection molding for various instrument boards, such as automobile , electric machine (washer, microwave, etc) which require great water resistance and durability.

The printing process is as follows :
1)printing the backside
2)over coating by binder
3)pre-forming
4)injection
5) product.
Finally, its printed film is united with a forming resin by putting into mold.
