SCREEN FABRIC: Mesh counts 230- 280 (92T-112T European) monofilament polyester.
STENCIL: Dual-sensitized direct method photo emulsion (Optima EM- 500) or SBQ pre-sensitized photo emulsion or equivalent.
Also, any solvent-resistant film or photo emulsion.
DRYING: By solvent evaporation. Air dry in approximately 30 minutes; Jet- dry in 20 to 30 seconds at 135° to 180° F (37°C to 83°C).
To extend color and/or reduce pigmentation, add 10790 Clear Base. For printing fine details, add 10800 Halftone Base.
To improve ink flow, add 1/2%-1% (by weight) FA 011 Flow Agent
For best printing results, 10000 Series should be reduced 5-15% (by weight) with T-971.
To prevent ink drying under hot & humid conditions, add T-922 or T-980 or T-999 (use sparingly).
For Spraying Application,
Use T-690 Spraying Thinner
For removing misprint without surface damage, Use T-625
