EZ FILM 30 | 30-Micron Textile Capillary Film, Priced as a Viable Alternative to Direct Emulsion; Fast Drying, Fast Exposing Pure Photopolymer (SBQ)

EZ-FILM-30 is ideal for standard textile printing using conventional, non-aqueous garment printing inks. It is priced to be an economical alternative to direct emulsion in material cost and because it offers significant savings in labor and production time. EZ-FILM-30 is ideal for mesh counts ranging from 230 - 419 threads /inch (90 and 165/cm.). It is pink in color and coated on 300-gauge matte-surface polyester. EZ-FILM-30 produces superb stencils quickly, consistently, and with no mess or waste. At a controlled-coating thickness, EZ-FILM-30’s exposure time and ink deposit (with the same mesh count) is always constant. It adheres perfectly, dries faster than direct emulsion, and exposes very quickly.EZ-FILM-30 can be adhered with plain water or with QTX® direct emulsion. EZ-FILM-30 is sold in convenient prepackaged sheets.
