Screen Printing: Understanding Emulsions & Stencil Exposure

If you are looking for technical tips and instructions about optimizing your exposure for direct liquid emulsion stencils then you should have a look at this great article by Ross Balfour of SaatiPrint. This is an older article but it has a lot of information packed into it from one of the leading screenprinting chemical and mesh manufactures in the industry. This article is very technical but it also has a decent amount of information that is easily read and understood by anyone with good reading comprehension.

SaatiPrintCheck out this excerpt from the article: “Up front, I have to admit that my motives for writing this article are purely selfish. As someone who toils daily in the manufacture of stencil systems, it is in my best interests to ensure that anyone who makes screens for a living is highly trained, knowledgeable, and best of all, qualified to troubleshoot problems. So, the aim of this article is to focus on some key variables that affect the correct exposure of direct emulsions and capillary films and to explain their influence. Then we will consider how to best evaluate optimum exposure for the different types of formulation that are used to manufacture these stencil systems. Finally we will touch upon some of the more practical aspects that are involved with producing quality screens on a daily basis.”

The article is called, “Understanding Emulsions and Stencil Exposure”. The article is located HERE.
