All Ryonet squeegees are made from high quality polyurethane blades. Ryonet carries four different types of squeegee durometer: 60 durometer (white), 70 durometer (green), 80 durometer (gray), and 70/90/70 triple durometer. Squeegee durometer is the squeegee "hardness," that determines the amount of pressure required to push ink through mesh. In general, soft squeegees leave a thicker ink deposit, while hard squeegees deposit a thinner amount.

What durometer should you use?

60 durometer is one of the softest blades and allows for a thicker ink deposit through lower mesh counts. It's ideal for special effects like puff, high density, glitters, and shimmers.

70 durometer is by most popular and versatile in the garment industry. It's a great general purpose blade for just about everything.

80 durometer provides a stronger force and leaves minimal ink deposit. This durometer is best for designs going through higher mesh counts with lots of fine details and halftones where a think ink deposit is needed for design clarity.

70/90/70 triple durometer gives you the benefits of the 70 durometer blade edge, which creates a good deposit of ink. With 90 durometer as the spine, you'll experience greater pressure applied during printing with minimal squeegee blade deflection. The triple durometer allows more ink to be laid down compared to an 80 durometer blade.

What is the best length of cut?

Honestly, that is absolutely up to the width of your image and your comfort level.  However, the most popular sizes are 6" for pockets and sleeves, and 12",13", and 14" for standard shirt printing, as the most common widths of print is around 10" to 12" wide.

Maintenance

Achieving the best screen printing performance and productivity is greatly dependent on the selection of the correct squeegee for the application and proper squeegee maintenance. When printing, monitor production time and rotate squeegees frequently. (The necessary rotation frequency is dependent on the ink / solvent system involved in the application) By doing so, you will achieve a more uniform print quality and increase the life of your squeegees. A squeegee should always be wiped clean and dry following removal from the press and stored in a dry environment at room temperature. The blade should be allowed to recover from the ink and solvent attack and rest for a period of 24 hours. It can then be placed back into production, or if necessary re-sharpened and placed back into production.
