Chromaline UDC-HV Dual Cure Emulsion
Chromaline MagnaCure® UDC-HV emulsion has high viscosity for easy coating on low or high mesh counts. Plus, UDC-HV offers excellent resistance to a wide range of inks and additives.
Fast exposure with excellent image quality
- Hard, durable stencils, resistant to the widest range of inks and additives
- Superior mesh adhesion
- Clear and dyed
- Water, solvent, UV, and plastisol ink resistant
- High viscosity allows for easy coating on high or low mesh counts
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.
