Achitex Minerva Group has drawn on its experience in the textile industry to develop a full range of high-performing, eco-compatible products for screen printing.
Screen printing is a discontinuous printing technique in which a polyester fabric screen is stretched on a metal frame and then photo-engraved to create clearly defined patterns.
The frame is placed on top of the fabric for printing and a special rubber trowel (squeegee) is then pressed down on it to force the ink through the screen onto the fabric underneath, precisely reproducing the pattern created by the photo-engraving process.
The R&D laboratories have developed products with excellent technical performances that respond to the demands of end users and the customer global fashion brands.
Customer-focus is reflected in quality: the laboratories are at customers’ service to resolve any issues and for the creation of new, leading-edge formulations.
