Chromaline would like to introduce the NEW & IMPROVED ChromaLime pure photopolymer emulsion. This formula has been refined to fight humidity ensuring positives do not stick to the screen during exposure. This new formula is also optimized to work with UV LED exposure systems. This is the perfect direct emulsion for hot and humid weather! Lime Green Color.
Reformulated to fight humidity
Works with UV LED & traditional exposure systems
Lime color promotes thorough exposure & easy registration
Improved resolution and definition
Optimized for UV LED & traditional UV exposure systems
Very fast exposure
Eliminates/greatly reduces sticking to inkjet films
Non-tacky in high humidity conditions
Exceptional resolution & definition
Optimal translucency for easy registration & faster press setups
Shelf Life - Approximate shelf life for this emulsion is 24 month (2 years) when stored at room temperature. It should not be stored at temperatures above 80f (27c) or below 37f (0c). For best results it should only be stored in its original container.
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.
