Exposure Time (seconds)*

CORRECT EXPOSURE IS ESSENTIAL FOR OPTIMUM STENCIL PERFORMANCE. UNDEREXPOSURE WILL GIVE A WEAK STENCIL AND REDUCE RESISTANCE.

Remove dust from the surface of the stencil and tape positive in position. Place entire screen in a suitable vacuum frame and expose. Use the Autotype Exposure Calculator to determine the optimum exposure for each mesh count used. The following is a rough guide to exposure time:

Lamp Distance 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 140 160 180 200
2kw metal halide 120 cm                      
3kw metal halide 120 cm                      
5kw metal halide 120 cm                      
125w mercury vapor 50 cm                      
UV fluorescent tubes 10 cm                      

*Based on 2+2 coating on 43/cm (110/inch) white monofilament polyester mesh.
