NOVA Emulsion Screen Printing

NOVA Emulsion Screen Printing is a one part fast drying and fast exposing photopolymer emulsion based on SBQ technology and monomers with fast photo-initiators to make the product faster, especially "LED " lights. NOVA is one of the fastest exposing emulsion available that may be used for Plastisol, UV, and solvent ink systems. nova works best on an i-image unit and does not clog the filters as a lot of other one-part products do. nova does not clog the sewer system.

Nova is a one-part, SBQ, Emulsion for Screen Printing that is pre-sensitized, ready to use textile emulsion and is recommended for Plastisol inks and solvents inks.

NOVA offers durability and excellent image. nova yields a smooth, even coating, sharp edges and high resolution. since this emulsion is based on SBQ technology, it does not require diazo and should be handled only in a yellow safelight environment. because of it's high solids content, coated screens dry in less time, and require fewer coats. in most cases, one coat on each side of the screen is all that is needed.

Guideline:
before applying the emulsion on the screen, make sure that screen is cleaned with degreaser and dried thoroughly. let the emulsion dry and then wash with a soft mist of water to create the image

Exposure:
Distance for the exposure should be about one and half times the diagonal measurement of the artwork from point light sources. yellow and orange mesh require at least 50% more time than white mesh.
the times given below are based on white mesh at approximately 40 inches. metal halide 25 seconds 3000 watts carbon arc 20 seconds 60 amps fluorescent tubes 35-60 seconds 40 watts

exposure times below were set for 5 kW unit at 40" from the frame.
