The Screen Printing Process (cont.)


Final Curing

 

When all of the colours have been printed, the shirt is carefully removed from the press and run through another dryer for a final cure. All inks have to be cured to completely dry them and bond them permanently to the fabric. A conveyor dryer is used for this. The shirts are carefully laid on the belt of the dryer where they are carried through the heat tunnel to reach a temperature of 320 degrees.


Upon exiting the dryer, the shirts are complete and ready to wear or be boxed for shipping.

Cleaning

The job is not over though until the clean-up is completed. All excess inks are returned to their containers.


Squeegees and tools are wiped down, cleaned with cleaning solvents and prepared for re-use.

The screens are also wiped down and rinsed with leaners to remove the last traces of ink. An eco-friendly chemical is applied to the screens to dissolve the emulsion and the screens are pressure washed to get them back to their original state - ready to start the process again.
