This silicone is used for glossy top printing to get super shiny effect. Its in two-component which mixed with 2%-5% catalyst. After finished glossy printing, we need to leave some time for bubble out, this is why its hard to people to get curve glossy effect without bubble. Heat too urgent or leave no enough time for bubble out, it would show easily in silicone with bubble. This silicone bubble would disappear within 20 seconds which is much better for machine production.

Solution to 3 Printing Issue
1.How to defoam the bubble in glossy silicone ?
Print thinner layer to help bubble out;
Dont heat too urgent, leave some time for leveling after printing finished;
Add 10% bubble-defoaming agent DS-1003 to speed leveling.
2.How to improve adhesion between silicone and fabrics ?
Add enough catalyst to make complete cure during printing;
Test the adhesion for adhesion before bulk production;
Print our adhesive agent 1001 first on waterproof fabrics to improve adhesion.
3.How to solve sticky surface of silicone printing ?
make sure catalyst added enough due to different weather and room temperature;
heat under curing temeperature, usually under 100-120 degree;
avoid to add too much pigment or other addive agent in silicone, this would also affect curing.
