Xenon 902QDC 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.
Xenon 902QDC Emulsion is a fast-drying Dual Cure photo emulsion. 902QDC is resistant to both solvent and water and can be used with all ink systems. Diazo is added in the normal way by first adding room temperature water, agitating before adding the solution to the emulsion, then allowing the emulsion to stand for at least 30 minutes to assure any air bubbles introduced during mixing are released. Reclaiming 902QDC is easy with Xenon Stencil Remover, which is available in paste and liquid form. Diazo Sensitizer is included in the package.
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.
