Waterbase printing

Waterbase printing

Water-based printing is one of the printing methods in which water-based inks are used for printing. This printing method is considered as a sustainable and environmental printing method due to its environmental characteristics and greater safety.

In waterbase printing, water-based inks are transferred to the desired surface using a printing mold. The printing mold is usually made of a silicon or steel matrix on which a printed design is placed. Then the printing ink is poured on the printing mold and the ink is transferred to the desired surface using a printing machine.

Among the advantages of using waterbase printing, the following can be mentioned:

  • More safety: Water-based inks in waterbase printing create more safety due to the lack of chemical solvents and pose the least risk to users and the environment.
  • Environmental sustainability: Waterbase printing is considered as a sustainable and environmental printing method due to the non-use of polluting chemicals.
  • High print quality: Waterbase printing, due to the high accuracy in transferring ink to the printed surface, results in high-quality printing and detailed details.
  • The price is right: Waterbase printing is less expensive due to the use of water-based inks and no need to use expensive equipment.
