Texsource EX-1 is a dual cure emulsion recommended for plastisol inks. EX-1 has excellent water resistance. Diazo is added in the normal way by first adding room temperature water, agitating and then adding the solution to the emulsion. Allow the emulsion to stand for at least 30 minutes to ensure any air bubbles introduced during mixing are released. This emulsion washes out with ease. No more washing out the dot's. Please use a Exposure Calculator to get proper exposure time.  Diazo is included in the package.  Blue color.

  • Dual-cure direct emulsion for printing UV cured, plastisol, solvent-based, and water-based inks
  • Excellent print definition on any mesh
  • Upon drying, stencils lack the tackiness typical of dual-cure emulsion 42% solids content

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.

Excellent product!

Love this stuff! Easy to use, easier to wash out than anything else I've tried. My only suggestion is selling pint-sized or 1/2 quart containers, because of the expiration issue, for people who only need to emulsify a few screens at a time...

A great emulsion for the price

We use this in our shop and have for about 2 years now. We print mainly low quantities, so the affordability of this is perfect. Durable and easy to wash out.


I love this emulsion washes out easier than any i've used
