Ulano “Hybrid” Emulsion Technology Formulation for Industrial Screen Printing and Graphics

QX-3 is a dark blue colored, ready-to-use, fast exposing “hybrid” direct emulsion formulated for high resolution printing with solvent-based inks, and conventional UV and water-based UV inks. QX-3 combines the pre-mixed convenience, fast exposure speed, and extended shelf life of pure photopolymer emulsions with the durability, versatility, and excellent imaging properties of dual-cure emulsions. QX-3 provides wide exposure latitude with all common exposure systems, including such weak light sources as fluorescent tubes. QX-3 has excellent solvent resistance and can be reclaimed easily, even if under-exposed and used with aggressive inks and wash-up solvents. Its good mechanical resistance makes QX-3 the emulsion of choice for glass printing with abrasive frit inks. Shelf life: 18 months
