Products for Filtration, Separation, Sifting and Printing
Water Based Ink vs Plastisol
Water-based ink versus plastisol: one is made of water and one is made of plastic. Simple. But while the difference is easy enough to read in the names, how this difference impacts your screenprint takes a little more research. We're going to look more in depth at each type, advantages and disadvantages, and use the differences to see which one would work best for you.Continue reading
There are two types of screen frames, metal and wood. Metal frames, both static (solid) and retentionable, have become the industry standard. Retentionables do not require the use of adhesive products.
Metal frames have been replaced by wood because they do not warp from water like wood frames do. The most commonly used types of wood are cedar and pine. Pine is preferred because it is more water resistant while it is light weight.Continue reading

Screen printing (or silk printing) is arguably the most versatile of all printing processes. It can be used to print on a wide variety of substrates, including paper, paperboard, plastics, glass, metals, fabrics, and many other materials. including paper, plastics, glass, metals, nylon and cotton. Some common products from the screen printing industry include posters, labels, decals, signage, and all types of textiles and electronic circuit boards. The advantage of screenprinting over other print processes is that the press can print on substrates of any shape, thickness and size.Continue reading
There are quite a few types of mesh fabrics available and they can be made from many types of substrates. There are multifilament and monofilament threads, stainless steel, nylon, polyester, and silk.
This article is limited to monofilament polyester printing mesh, the best and cheapest choice for screen printing garments. You have for example many choices in thread weave available. The plain weaves (Fig. 1) and the twill weaves. (Fig.2) Twill weaves can provide higher ink volume when used in higher meshes but the ability to hold sharp edges with a coated emulsion is diminished.(Fig. 3) Almost all applications will be best served with a plain weave.Continue reading
Even though, we have stepped into the Summer Season for sometime, however, we have been experiencing plum rain season, raining all the day but of course, weather is cooler. BUT now, Plum Rain Season is gone and Summer comes into full wing, temperature is going up and it's getting hotter and hotter day by day.
So SHARE decides to give 4hours off during the workday from 11am to 3pm, this period is the hottest time of the day, workers can have a good rest during this time. SHARE doesn't fall behind the production schedule since SHARE makes up the time in the evening and SHARE is trying to finish clients' order as planned and not affected by hot weather.Continue reading

To football lover, it is a great news that FIFA WORLD CUP 2014 has kicked off in the Country of Football, where too many world-renowned football players are born and grown in this land.
Brazil is a great country rich not only in natural resources, beautiful beaches, gorgeous women, but also great football players.

The threads support the stencil. The open areas allow ink passage. Familiarity with the meaning and importance of each mesh will make fabric selection easier---and consistent high-quality printing more predictable
The number of threads per linear inch (norminal mesh count). Screen fabrics are woven in threads per centimeter and then the number is calculated to English measurement for sale into parts of the world that don’t use the metric system
Example: A fabric woven at 120 threads/cm equals 305 threads/inch. The figure is calculated by multiplying 120 x 2.54=304.8, this number is rounded up to 305
Due to the fast development of factories producing industrial and home textile, dyeing factories also go up with them to provide the service of dyeing the fabrics into different colors.Continue reading
Today, screen printing continues to play a significant role in the production of glass & ceramic products for both industrial and consumer applications. Screen printing is unique because the process can overcome two significant challenges faced by glass decorators:
- Able to print on unlimited sizes, 3D objects, uneven surfaces
- Deliver thick, opaque ink deposits that often contain glass frit/precious metals
DUANWU or Dragon Boat Festival falls on today---June 2nd, 2014 on Solar Calendar or May 5th, 2014 on Chinese Lunar Calendar. SHARE would like to take this opportunity to wish all our hard-working staff a very HAPPY HOLIDAY, without your hard-work, SHARE could not achieve what we have today; And we also like to wish all our clients from home and abroad a HAPPY HOLIDAY.
We are closed from 31th, May to 2nd, June 2014 for the celebration of the holiday.Continue reading
Screen-Printing on Clay
There are multitudes of ways to decorate the surface of clay. The various techniques and materials are almost never-ending and
always changing. Screen-printing, or silk-screening, is a stencil method of printing a flat color design through a piece of silk or other
fine cloth on which all parts of the design not to be printed have been stopped out by an impermeable film. Silk-screening has been
used heavily in many industries for many years, but we have just recently started to see its use in fine art ceramics.
Filtration is commonly the mechanical or physical operation which is used for the separation of solids from fluids (liquids or gases) by interposing a medium through which only the fluid can pass. The fluid that passes through is called the filtrate. Oversize solids in the fluid are retained, but the separation is not complete; solids will be contaminated with some fluid and filtrate will contain fine particles (depending on the pore size and filter thickness). Filtration is also used to describe somebiological processes, especially in water treatment and sewage treatment in which undesirable constituents are removed by absorption into a biological film grown on or in the filter medium as in slow sand filtration.Continue reading
Mesh size is a measurement of the number of holes in a filter per a given area. In the United States, the standard area is 1 square inch. Microns are a measure of length equal to one millionth of a meter. Small particles are often measured in microns, therefore it is necessary to convert from microns to the corresponding mesh size when you need to determine which size of filter needs to be used to capture specific particles.Continue reading
Silk-screen printing is no longer an art form reserved for professional artists and large-scale printing operations with sophisticated production techniques. With a few basic supplies, such as plain white glue, and at a fraction of the cost, you can create your own design and produce silk screen images on fabric in an afternoon.Continue reading
