    Double Duty is an olive-grey, enhanced dual-cure emulsion formulated for use with industrial etchants, and with abrasive, frit-containing inks for ceramics and glass decoration. Because of its mechanical durability, Double Duty is also well suited to lengthy textile printing runs using discharge and other water-based textile inks. It has 40% solids content (unsensitized) and a viscosity of 6500-8000 centipoise (sensitized). Read more

    NEW!: EZ-50 ORANGE; Replaces EZ-FILM-50 and CDF/QT-50*

    EZ-50 ORANGE--ORANGE direct emulsion coated as a 50-micron capillary film--joins red 30-micron EZ-FILM-30 as an immediate replacement for EZ-FILM-50 as well as CDF/QT-50--and at a considerably lower price!"

    In addition to offering the fast exposure speed and anti-halation properties of ORANGE emulsion, EZ-50 ORANGE offers all the
    traditional benefits of capillary film:

    Ease of use
    •Minimal training required
    •“Pre-coated” stencils = perfect stencils— every time
    •Consistent exposure time

    Fewer processing steps
    •User friendly; easiest-to-use stencil system

    Wet processing
    •Avoids dirt- and dust-caused pinholes

    Consistent stencil thickness
    •Consistent exposure time
    •Control of ink deposit—and ink costs

    Backing sheet prevents stencil contraction during drying
    •Low Rz values; sharper printing edges

    Capillary film processing
    •Simplicity, reliability, consistency, quality
    •Yields 10,000-30,000 impression when wet adhered

    Can also be adhered /reinforced with emulsion
    •Adjustment of stencil thickness
    •Printing runs of 50,000-70,000 impressions

    *Use EZ-50 ORANGE with screen fabric 86-196 threads per inch (33-77/cm.); EZ-FILM-30 with screen fabric 230-305/inch (90-120/cm.).

    An Update on Sta-Sharp® S3S and Sta-Sharp® Adhering Liquid

    A year ago we announced a VOC (volatile organic compound)-free
    version of Sta-Sharp S3S, our solvent-adhered knifecut stencil
    film, as well as a VOC-free version of Sta-Sharp Adhering Liquid.
    This breakthrough chemistry made it possible for an aqueouscoated
    film to resist aqueous inks.

    Unfortunately, we found that after reformulated S3S film ages, it
    cannot be dissolved sufficiently by the reformulated adhering
    liquid to be adhered securely to screen mesh. This is especially
    so if the screen mesh is coarse or has not been prepared
    thoroughly—instances when the original formulation was
    essentially failure-proof.

    We have formulated a new VOC-containing adhering liquid to be used with reformulated, VOC-free S3S film. It is called Sta-Sharp-4143 Adhering Liquid and is available from Ulano distributors. The new adherent requires 15 - 30 minutes of drying, depending on the ambient humidity. We no longer recommend the use of reformulated Sta-Sharp Adhering Liquid ("QSS-G"--part number for quarts; "GSS-Q"--part number for gallons) with reformulated S3S film.

    For information on Sta-Sharp-4143 Adhering Liquid, please contact Ulano - Brooklyn."

    Ulano’s revolutionary RD Sensitizing Technology will facilitate diazo-free, “pre-sensitized” versions of some of our most successful products, but without the need for measuring, mixing, stirring, or de-bubbling—and with considerably longer pot life. RD products will be sold as “Epic-Cure”—“EC”—emulsions.

    Over 30 years ago, Ulano introduced capillary film to the world market. Now, we believe that we have perfected capillary films. CDF® Lexar is SBQ (pure photopolymer) sensitized capillary film formulated for use with solvent-based inks (thicknesses: 15µ, 20µ, 25µ, 30µ, 40µ, and 50µ). Read more

    CDF® Vision is a diazo dual-cure formulation capillary film that controls mesh penetration and enhances photo-polymerization, for printed edge sharpness and optimal on-press durability (thicknesses: 15µ, 18µ, 20µ, 25µ, and 35µ ). Both film types resist hydrostatic attraction to printing stock under high humidity conditions, and electrostatic attraction in low humidity environments. Read more

    EZ-50 Orange-Ulano Film for Imprinted Sportswear by Donald Marsden

    orangeOrangeDirect Emulsion

    At January’s ISS Show in Long Beach, California, we introduced Ulano Orange, a pre-sensitized (ready-to-use), pure photopolymer (SBQ) textile emulsion for imprinted sportswear printing.  Orange is formulated with a “masking color” that reduces halation—the reflection and scattering of light in screen mesh during exposure—a major cause of loss of resolution, the closing up of fine lines and details.  One would expect a “masking color” to slow the exposure speed of an emulsion drastically, but that does not happen with Orange!  It is ultra-fast-exposing!  It is perfect for shops with high stencil making throughput, as well as shops with fluorescent tubes or other low-intensity light sources. 

    Orange has high viscosity (6,000 – 8,000 centipoise) that improves control when coating screens by hand and makes Orange a good choice for coarse mesh.  Its high solids content (44 - 46%) results in better mesh bridging, especially on coarse mesh, good edge definition, and fast drying. 

    Orange is resistant to plastisol inks, most washup solvents, and some commonly-used water-based textile inks.  It is easy to reclaim in automatic stencil removal equipment or by hand.  Stencils made with Orange are extremely durable, will not become tacky under high humidity conditions, and have excellent wet strength and exposure latitude.  Orange is formulated to reduce stencil-making time--in coating (because of its high viscosity), drying (due to its high solids), and exposure (its high photo-sensitivity despite its “masking color”).
