Features & Benefits

  • SBQ one pot garment emulsion for use with water based and Plastisol garment inks
  • 36% solids for good build on the range of meshes that are typically used for garment printing
  • Ready to use one-pot formulation and short exposure times for better productivity
  • Resistant to most water based and plastisol textile inks
  • Quick washout and excellent print quality

Applications

  • Specifically formulated for textile applications using plastisol water based inks and water based discharge inks

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                      
Thorn Graph X 120 cm
