Siltec uses three methods to mark silicone products: Laser marking, inline printing and pad printing.
Laser marking involves writing markings directly into the material using a laser. Irradiation of the material with a laser triggers a local chemical reaction in the material, resulting in a color change in the material.
In order to be able to print inline, the inkjet printing process is used. Inline printing describes the print directly integrated into the production line. This means that continuous goods can be marked at intervals of approximately 25cm.
The pad process can be used to apply individual markings to silicone products. Tampon printing is an indirect gravure printing process, which is particularly suitable for printing on bodies due to the elasticity of the transfer medium (tampon).
Using these processes, various information can be printed on our silicone products:
- batch number
- serial number
- lot number
- best-before date
- expiration date
- date of manufacture
- company-related information
- machine-readable codes
- data matrix
