Information

Usage and purpose

The IRIS Glass Primer forms an adhesion promoting layer between flat glass and UV curing systems such as UV inkjet inks. The primer is applied directly to the glass surface. Once the solvent evaporates, a transparent layer is formed providing a chemical bond between the glass structure and the the UV-curing inks.

References

“Mimaki Europe has tested the IRIS Glass Primer for the UV-LED curing products that we make and we have had very good adhesion results with this primer on different types of glass. We at Mimaki would recommend the IRIS Glass Primer to users that are having difficulty getting the right adhesion with UV-LED printing on their glass products."

Application

Determine the atmospheric side of the glass*) - not the tin side - and clean it thoroughly. Use a lint free cloth or tissue to evenly apply wiping a small amount of IRIS Glass Primer. Let sit for a few minutes. Remove any liquid residues by wiping and polishing with a lint free cloth or tissue until the glass is dry and completely clear. Larger glass panels can be polished residue-free with a buffing- or polishing machine.

Primed glass can be stored in dark for 24 hours prior to printing.

Processing instructions:

The glass surface to be treated and printed must be completely dry, free of dust, grease and other contamination. Do not apply IRIS Glass Primer at temperatures below +4 and above +50 degrees Celsius and at a humidity above 80% RH.

Possible hazards classification according to RL 1999/45/EG / according to regulation (EG) Nr. 1272/2008: no obligation for indication. Identification elements: none

At higher concentrations the glass primer can have a narcotic and irritating effect for the respiratory system. May cause eye irritation. The use of protective gloves and glasses is recommended.

*) To identify the atmospheric side of the glass we recommend the "TinCheck" instrument by Bohle (about 360,- Euro net)

Tips for cleaning glass

Do not use glass cleaners containing tensides. Isopropanol (isopropyl alcohol) with some addition of alkali is the most appropriate glass cleaning fluid. Finally rinse with destilled water and dry completely before applying the glass primer. Always apply the primer to the atmospheric side of the glass (never on the tin side!).
