Diazo-Photopolymer (Dual-Cure) Emulsions

S285CTS_RED_100x.jpg

Ulano's diazo-photopolymer emulsions represent a dynamic step forward in dual-cure technology. The Ulano LX series of dual-cure emulsions provide higher solids content, faster exposure times, superior resolution and definition capabilities, and resistance to both solvent- and water-based inks. Ulano's LX dual-cure emulsions are partially sensitized and should be handled under yellow safe light conditions before exposure.

Diazo-photopolymer ("dual-cure") emulsions resemble conventional diazo-sensitized emulsions inasmuch as they are sensitized by diazo resins and contain PVOH and usually PVA. They also contain oil-based water and solvent-resistant acrylate monomers/oligomers, and a photo initiator and accelerator. Because the acrylate increases the emulsion's solids content, it is possible to use less PVA in dual-cures. This spells easier reclaiming and less acetate staining. The high solids contribute to faster drying, sharp stencil shoulders and printing acutance, better mesh bridging, and higher build per coat for relatively lower Rz values.

DLX | Excellent Humidity Resistance

Diazo-photopolymer emulsion formulated to overcome the problem of humidity sensitivity. It offers superior resistance to humidity, rapid drying without residual suface oiliness, quick exposure with a variety of light sources, and a reduced acrylate odor. DLX is recommended for a wide variety of printing applications (especially those requiring high resolution), including use with UV, plastisol, and water and solvent inks.

LX-892 | Extremely Abrasion Resistant for Flat or Cylinder Screens

LX-892 is extremely resistant to abrasion and holds up very well under shop conditions of high temperature and ambient humidty. LX-892 is formulated to produce stencils that are extremely resistant to the pastes and inks used in the ceramics industry, using flat or cylindrical screens. It is particularly suitable for printing floor tiles, single-, double-, or triple-fired glazed tiles, and porcelainized stoneware. It is very resistant to water- and solvent-based mediums, and blends used in the ceramic industry for direct printing or decals. It can also be used for many other demanding mediums printing such as water-based inks for textiles.

L X-892 can be catalyzed using Hardener D to make stencils resistant for longer printing runs. Hardener D is a solution developed especially to produce a chemical polymerization of the stencil that does not damage screen mesh. Reinforced screens can be very hard to reclaim. Before reinforcement, however, screens can be reclaimed easily using one of the stencil removers manufactured by Ulano: Stencil Remover Nos. 4, 42, 44, or 5.

Thanks to its very high solids content and medium-high viscosity, it produces stencils of high resolution with excellent definition, providing a superior build up of emulsion with each coating pass, excellent mesh bridging on coarse mesh, as well as rapid drying.

LX-892 is blue for easy see-through registration and inspection on white or dyed mesh It turns brown when sensitized and when properly exposed, LX-892 will revert to its original blue color, serving as a built-in indicator of proper exposure.
