Chromaline ChromaTech PL-1 Photopolymer Emulsion
IMPORTANT: Texsource ships in-stock items as orders are placed, and cannot guarantee that temperature-sensitive items, like emulsions and emulsion removers, will not be exposed to freezing temperatures in transit. Texsource is not responsible for items damaged by exposure to extreme temperatures.
Chroma/Tech PL is high solids offers good buildup with fewer coats, saving time and providing more screens per gallon. Chroma/Tech PL speeds up the entire process: coating, dry times and exposure speed.
- Designed exclusively for plastisol inks
- Very fast exposing and drying times
- High solids for fast coating build-up and quick drying
- Excellent reclaimability, no lock-in
- Dyed Only—no mixing, very fast exposing,excellent reclaimability
Emulsion Exposure Differences
Proper screen exposure must take many factors into account – the emulsion type, coating thickness, exposure unit, etc. As a general guideline for the different emulsion types (diazo, dual cure, and photopolymer) use these times as a reference.
Photopolymer – These are typically the fastest exposing emulsions, with many exposing correctly from 30-50 seconds. The shortest times can be seen when using a newer LED-type exposure unit.
Dual Cure – If you have established a good exposure time with photopolymer emulsions, you can typically add 90 seconds (1.5 minutes) to that time for most dual cure emulsions.
Diazo - If you have established a good exposure time with photopolymer emulsions, you can typically add 210 seconds (3.5 minutes) to that time for most diazo emulsions.These times will depend heavily on your exposure unit and should only be considered as a starting point.
