Technical screen printing

Adhesive screen printing

Rationalization and resource-efficient use through "screen-printable adhesive tapes"... the sustainable alternative to transfer adhesive tapes

Self-adhesive materials produced using the screen printing process are increasingly being used in industrial applications.

The possibility of partially coating materials with adhesive is used wherever adhesive tapes were previously used or where transfer adhesive tapes are difficult to apply due to manufacturing constraints or the shape of the material. In addition to generally lower process costs, screen printing adhesives also have a more sustainable and resource-efficient impact. In many cases, the adhesive material can be used with almost no waste. On the other hand, with transfer adhesive tapes, it is possible that in some cases, over 90% of the starting material is discarded as waste. For example, when larger frames are cut out for display ads.

We mainly use dispersion-based acrylic adhesives for screen printing and cover the adhesive layer with silicone paper or silicone-coated polyester film. This full-surface covering also protects adhesive-free and sensitive areas, such as display windows, from dirt and scratches. Screen printing adhesives offer flexibility in processing, positioning, and layer thickness.


  • Extremely precise adhesive contour
  • Partial islands possible, standing freel
  • No need for die-cutting tools
  • No waste from die-cutting
  • Adhesive savings as only partial, not full-area coating is used
  • Exact definition of adhesive layer thickness through different screen printing meshes
  • Individual K-systems with weak to strong adhesion available
  • Economical and ecological mass production with high application speed and processing
  • Environmentally friendly and sustainable application
  • Disadvantages:

  • The use of screen printing adhesives depends on the quantity produced (mass production)
  • Adhesion and resistance need to be individually assessed and verified
  • Other interesting coating methods:

  • Electrically conductive pastes
  • Electrically conductive adhesives
  • Printing of lightly conductive materials
  • Antimicrobial surfaces
  • Paste printing, e.g., glass paste Structuring of materials
  • Resists for surface protection (partial or full-surface protection in applications such as etching, sandblasting, sputtering, etc.)
