PLUS 2000 is a high quality, 34% solids diazo dual-cure emulsion for general purpose Screen Printing applications. The fast exposure speed makes PLUS 2000 excellent for use on large format screens or with a low powered UV light source.

Features & Benefits

  • High print quality, medium/high solids, resistant to solvent based and UV curing inks, fast exposure and quick washout, wide exposure latitude, easily decoatable, direct addition diazo.
  • Ideal for high volume production where rapid stencil production is paramount.

Applications

  • PLUS 2000 is resistant to solvent and radiation curing inks.
  • PLUS 2000 is particularly recommended for applications where rapid stencil production and wide processing latitude is required, along with good print durability, print quality, and easy removal after printing.

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 vapour 50 cm                      
UV fluorescent tubes 10 cm                      
Thorn Graph X 120 cm                      

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