Emulsion

Discount Screen Supplies offers two types of Emulsion: Textile and Graphic. The Emulsion we are offering is the same that we ourselves use everyday to print over 600 jobs, so you can be assured it is high quality.

GRAPHIC SBQ EMULSION: Our Graphic Emulsion is used for general graphic emulsion. A blue, pure photopolymer emulsion, it is resistant UV-cured, plastisol and solvent-based ink. It is water resistant when post-exposed. The emulsion has a medium viscosity and high solids content, allowing you high-quality print definition. There is no mixing required and fast expoure. Our emulsion is also easy to reclaim.


To use the emulsion, you should handle under yellow safelight or low-wattage lights. Since the emulsion does not require mixing, you can start by applying one or two coats on the substrate side of the screen, then applying one-two coats on the squeegee side as well. Depending on your stencil, you may want to apply additional coats. Dry the screen in a dark environment. Contact the emulsion side of the positive with the substrate side of the sceen and secure it. Run a test exposure before exposing your screen. When done, wet both sides of the screen and wash out until image appears in full.

 

TEXTILE SBQ EMULSION:

The Textile Emulsion is generally used for garmet printing with plastisol ink. It is a red, pure photopolymer direct emulsion. Offering excellent print definition, it is resistant to plastisol ink, abrasion, and humidity, as well as water resistant when post-exposed. It has incredibly fast exposure and 42% solids content.

Like with our graphic emulsion, use under a yellow safelight or low-wattage tungsten light. the emulsion is presensitized like our graphic emulsion and will not need mixing. you can start by applying one or two coats on the substrate side of the screen, then applying one-two coats on the squeegee side as well. Depending on your stencil, you may want to apply additional coats. Dry the screen in a dark environment. Contact the emulsion side of the positive with the substrate side of the sceen and secure it. Run a test exposure before exposing your screen. When done, wet both sides of the screen and wash out until image appears in full.
