PLATINUM™ | VIOLET | SBQ-photopolymer direct emulsion for textile/ transfers/ imprinted sportswear printing with plastisol and water-based inks. Good for CTS, LED exposure units, automatic washout and reclaiming equipment.

Platinum Violet is a ready-to-use, SBQ-photopolymer direct emulsion for imprinted sportswear printing with plastisols, including aggressive post-phthalate formulations. With the addition of its optional diazo, Platinum Violet resists water-based and discharge inks. Its high viscosity (12,000 – 14,000 centipoise at 25º C.) provides good coating control, even on coarse mesh. Its high solids content (≈ 42 %) facilitates fast drying, good buildup of EOM (emulsion thickness over mesh) per coating stroke and, thus, good printed edge definition. Platinum Violet is formulated for compatibility with CTS (computer-to-screen) exposure, and automated washout and reclaiming equipment. Used with plastisols, it does not require any sensitizers or additives; it is presensitized and premixed.
