RHEOLOGY CONTROL

FLOPRINT thickeners offer numerous functional benefits. Their properties are:

  • To hold the paste in the screen
  • To let the paste go through the screen when the shearing force is applied
  • To control the amount of paste that is transferred
  • To build up the viscosity quickly after the shearing force is removed
  • To hold the paste in position on the cloth against capillary forces …
  • To prevent flushing or bleeding
  • To allow the paste to penetrate to the required extent
  • To allow the dye to get into the fiber (substantive dye printing) or
  • To allow the binder to crosslink (pigment printing)
