Using Chromaline PL Emulsion: Step-by-Step Guide
Note: Before you begin the emulsion application process, make sure to perform all steps in a light-safe environment to prevent premature exposure.
Achieve exceptional screen printing results with Chromaline PL Emulsion. Follow these straightforward steps to ensure proper application and impeccable prints:
- Mesh degreaser
- Chromaline PL
- Emulsion Scoop coater
- Clean drying cabinet
- Exposure unit with photopositive
- Lukewarm water source
- Clean and dark workspace
- Degrease the Mesh: Apply a mesh degreaser to both sides of the mesh, creating a lather. Thoroughly rinse the screen and frame with water, then allow it to dry completely.
- Coating Process: Place the screen on a stable surface, slightly tilted upwards. Pour an adequate amount of Chromaline PL Emulsion into your scoop coater. Hold the scoop coater at a slight angle and apply the emulsion to the print side of the screen. Ensure even and consistent coverage by making a smooth, steady pass with the coater. Flip the screen over and use the scoop coater to apply one coat of emulsion to the squeegee side. For a thicker stencil, apply additional coats to the squeegee side while the emulsion is still wet. Note: One coat on each side of Chromaline PL is equivalent to four coats of wet-on-wet application with typical diazo-based emulsions. Allow the emulsion to dry completely between coats.
- Level Drying: Place the screen in a clean and dark drying cabinet, ensuring the screens are completely level with the print side facing down. Allow the cabinet’s temperature to remain below 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43 degrees Celsius). Allow the emulsion to dry thoroughly before proceeding.
- Film Positive Placement: Position the film positive on the shirt side of the screen, ensuring it is in contact with the emulsion. Expose the screen using your exposure unit. Exposure times may vary based on your light source and coating methods. Accurate exposure is crucial for optimal results. Consider using an exposure calculator to determine the ideal exposure time.
- Development: Gently spray both sides of the screen with lukewarm water. Wait for about 30 seconds. Gently wash the print side of the screen until the image is fully open and visible. Rinse both sides of the screen thoroughly with water. Ensure the screen is completely dry before proceeding to the printing stage.
- Printing: With the properly exposed and developed screen, you are now ready to proceed with your screen printing process.
- Final Steps: Handle the screen and emulsion in a light-safe environment to prevent premature exposure. Store Chromaline PL Emulsion in a cool, dry place to maintain its quality.
By following these step-by-step instructions, you can harness the capabilities of Chromaline PL Emulsion to achieve impeccable screen printing results. Elevate your prints with this high-quality emulsion and bring your creative vision to life with confidence and precision.
For optimal emulsion results, it’s crucial to use an exposure calculator tailored to your specific setup. Exposure times can vary based on factors such as coating technique, light source, emulsion type, and thickness. Utilizing an exposure calculator ensures precise and customized exposure times, enabling you to fine-tune your emulsion process for exceptional screen printing outcomes.
