QUANTA Dual Cure Silk Screen Emulsion
QUANTA Dual Cure Silk Screen Emulsion is a diazo base emulsion (40% solid). Quanta is a dual cure emulsion that takes advantage of the most potential technology available to offer the highest possible “edge definition”, super resolution and easiest re claimer. it is a printer’s dream emulsion. Easily reclaimable-prints more shirts than most two part products.Yields sharp image and resist solvents in press or screen wash. Quanta is recommended for plastisol, solvent and uv ink systems. reclaiming of the cured film is easy; the screen may be reclaimed with our stripper.
Diazo is added by first adding room temperature water into the Diazo bottle, shake properly until dissolved and then add the solution to the emulsion. mix well into the emulsion and it let stand for at least 30 minutes to release any air bubbles that may have been formed during the mixing of diazo into emulsion.
PREPARATION OF SCREEN & EMULSION:
Clean the screen with Degreaser and let it dry completely. add water to the diazo bottle & shake for a minute or so making sure that all of diazo is dissolved.Apply one coat of emulsion with diazo (one on the squeegee side and one on the print side). Apply two coats on each side staring from the print side. multiple coats of emulsion on the screen would obviously produce a thicker stencil. when a heavier stencil is being achieved through multiple coatings, the exposure time will be increased. Let the emulsion film be completely dry and then you wash the screen with a mist of water to open the image area. Get all the water by air or by blotting otherwise the residue of the emulsion may run into the image area, blocking the ink. Look for any pinholes of which Quanta does not usually yield any, If Qunata is exposed within the optimum exposure limits and the screen is degreased and abraded properly. If there are pinholes on the screen after washing use block-out to close the pin holes.
- Broad spectrum of exposure limits, longer latitude

- SOLIDS: 40% + -1% SOLUBILITY: WATER
Distance for the exposure should be about one and a half times the diagonal measurement of the artwork from point light sources. yellow & orange mesh requires at least 50% more time than white mesh.
The times given below are based on white 110 white mesh approximately 40 inches.
- metal halite: 60 seconds for 1000 watts / 25 seconds for 3000 watts /18 seconds for 5000 watts
- carbon arc 250 seconds for 15 amps/ 130 seconds for 30 amps/ 70 seconds for 60 amps /
- fluor. tubes 240 seconds for 40 watt
