TEX Dual Cure Diazo Textile photo emulsion
TEX Dual Cure Diazo Textile photo emulsion is priced very low for promotional reasons. TEX may stand against any Dual Cure Emulsion in the marketplace. TEX is developed for water and plastisol-based ink systems and made with advanced polymer chemistry, with special photo-initiators and monomers. TEX is a high solid (>45%) and fast-drying dual cure photo emulsion and is recommended for plastisol and water-based ink system. reclaiming the cured film is easy; the screen may be reclaimed with our stripper. Diazo is added by first adding room temperature water, shaking properly until dissolved, and then adding the solution to the emulsion. mix well into the emulsion and let stand for at least 30 minutes to release any air bubbles that may have been formed.
Preparation of Screen and Emulsion:
Clean the screen with a degreaser and let it dry completely,
Add water to the diazo bottle & shake for a minute or so making sure that all of the diazo is dissolved.
you may apply one coat of emulsion with diazo on the squeegee side and one on the print side or two coats on each side starting from the print side. the more coats you put on heavier the stencil will be achieved. with a heavier stencil, the exposure time will be increased. let the emulsion film 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. tex does not usually yield any pinholes if exposed within the optimum exposure limits. if there are pinholes use block-out to close the pinholes.
TEX Dual Cure Diazo Textile photo emulsion is the best dual cure emulsion in its value for water and Plastisol ink, not only in its price but what it offers. We consider TEX as one of the best Dual Cure Emulsions for textile printing- We dare and challenge the industry to show us otherwise.
- High solids
- A broad spectrum of exposure limits, longer latitude
- Excellent resolution
- High edge definition
- Perfect mesh bridging
- Fast drying
- Longer print capabilities with great durability
- Easy reclaiming
- Excellent humidity resistance
- Quicker exposure
- Best choice for developing halftones and fine lines
- Requires fewer coating applications as TEX has high solids
- Heavy (higher viscosity than most dual-cure emulsions) emulsion that makes it easy to apply two coatings for a heavier stencil
- Great water resistance
- Prints more shirts than most two parts emulsions
- Super-resolution and easiest re-claiming. it is a printer’s dream emulsion
- Yields sharp image

- Viscosity: 13,000/15,000 cps at 20 rpm
- Solids:45% + -2%
- PH: 5.5
- Solubility: Complete in 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 halide: 50 seconds for 1000 watts / 20 seconds for 3000 watts /15 seconds for 5000 watts
- carbon arc 240 seconds for 15 amps/ 120 seconds for 30 amps/ 60 seconds for 60 amps /
- fluorescent. tubes 200 seconds for 40 watt
