The antistatic silicone elastomers developed by the CHT Group are composed of electrically conductive silicone polymers and various special fillers. The RTV 2 silicone elastomers are perfectly suited for producing high quality printing pads.
The great variety of different Shore hardnesses and the high moulding accuracy promote a safe, high quality printing process on versatile common materials:
The outstanding release properties of the silicones from organic and inorganic surfaces are particularly advantageous. Finest detail reproduction is facilitated by the excellent transfer property of the printing ink in pad printing.
The silicone elastomers of the CHT Group have additionally an outstanding mechanical and chemical stability.
In pad printing it is important that a clear, reproductive print with defined outlines and complete colour fill is achieved. Static charges may affect the print appearance in various ways.
