Ulano LX-660 Dual Cure 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.
Ulano LX-660 Emulsion is compatible with water-based ink systems and suitable for all general purpose, graphics, and industrial applications. Latitude, resolution, and edge definition are excellent, which makes it ideal for fine line and halftone printing. The emulsion is durable and fast-drying. Diazo-sensitized, durable, high solids content dual-cure emulsion with superior resistance to water based ink systems as well as most solvent-based inks.
Shelf Life - Approximate shelf life for this emulsion is 1 year 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. Shelf life after adding diazo is 4-6 weeks.
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.
