The Fierosil silica pretreatment system for curing your UV inks is the solution for maintaining ink adhesion when your product is affected by any harsh environment such as a dishwasher or weather conditions. All you need to do is pretreat you product, which is approximately 1 second with our Fierosil. You no longer have to resort to difficult to use solvent inks when printing. UV inks provide the operator with a safer environment, such as not containing VOC’s that solvent inks have. UV inks are also much easier to work with due to not sticking to anything in your work area or ripping a screen from getting stuck. Your set up and clean up time will be a fraction of what it used to be. The UV inks stay in a liquid state and can be left for hours sitting on the screen, if covered from the light (UV exposed even from room light can slowly dry your ink). You may also use multi-color prints easier due to instantaneous curing of the ink when exposed to a UV light source.
The previous method for pretreatment of products for printing with silica was through Pyrosil, which has it solution and system made in Germany. The Fierosil comes in at less than half the price of the competition, with financing and renting options available. The Fierosil solution is also sourced in the US. Any Fierosil system can be immediately assessed by our technical department and the solution is readily available (made in USA) without having to cross continents or extended troubleshooting due to time zones. The system provides an identical precursor with Pyrosil for improving the surface tension of your products that require pretreatment. Fierosil Pretreatment can not only protect your product surface with screen printed ink but with inkjet printed items as well. The Silica coating of the pretreatment provides a coating over the poor surface levels that your products may arrive in.
