Metallic Colors

Screen printing gives the advantage to print on a very wide range of surfaces such as paper, cardboard, plastic,
leather, textile, metal. Very performing metallic pigments provide an improvement in gloss and metallic effect
which are further enhanced when using coarse metallic pigments with a 5µm up to 60µm. In order to avoid
the clogging of the screen mesh at any time, it is recommended to choose mesh grades based on 60µm grain size.
