Boston Industrial Solutions, Inc., Introduces New Silicone Ink for Socks and Gloves - WhatTheyThink

Boston Industrial Solutions, Inc., announces the launch of Natron-SilTex AS Series screen printing silicone inks for socks and gloves. This silicone ink line has an anti-slip (high coefficient of friction), a high gloss effect, and a high-density appearance on printed cotton, polyester, nylon knit, and wool socks. This screen-printing ink inline joins other textile print innovations such as tag-free printing inks and 3D high density printing. The anti-slip feature allows for high friction grip regardless of the textile substrate and the product printed on it. Because this ink is made of silicone, it bonds very well to wool, cotton, and other natural fabrics. Socks printed with this screen-printing ink feature high gloss and unique and eye-catching 3D prints. This ink helps apparel printing companies screen print different designs on socks and gloves. This new screen-printing ink benefits apparel manufacturers, socks manufacturers, sporting goods manufacturers, branding agencies, promotional products, and a variety of other organizations looking to offer PVC-free prints. The SilTex AS series is made with high quality, environmentally safe, low energy curing silicone polymers. The anti-slip socks are great for slipper applications and as promotional socks. Anti-slip socks are useful as hospital socks, home care socks, or just as slipper socks for home use—this makes them perfect for promotional socks. The AS silicone ink is very durable. Once the socks are printed, the prints are permanent.

"We’re excited to offer this dotting silicone ink to customers as an addition to our leading apparel screen printing silicone inks...this new printing ink will enhance customers' offerings by enabling them to print on slipper hospital and promotional socks, gloves, and more. Printing on socks will enable promotional product companies to expand their product offerings and generate new revenue opportunities," said Bonaventure, COO of Boston Industrial Solutions, Inc.
