Crack printing is a printing method to produce an attractive design on the fabric surface. Here rubber is used as the printing paste. It is near similar to the rubber printing process but additional crack paste is used before applying rubber printing paste by the screen printer on the cotton fabric.
Here, I have given a printing process of cotton fabric with a crack printing process. Also, I have given a sample printing recipe.
- Rubber: 98%
- Fixer: 2%
- And crack paste / clear
Process Flow Chart Of Crack Printing:
The following sequence is the crack printing. They are-
Fabric for printing
Fabric plaited on the table
Crack paste/clear apply with the help of a screen
Dry in air temp or hand dryer m/c (slight)
Printing paste applied with the help of a screen
Curing at 190ºc (belt speed 2 m/min)
In sum, crack printing can be produced on the surface of T-Shirt, Polo-Shirt, and other finished knit fabric and woven fabric.
