Ulano QLT Emulsion
QLT is a ready-to-use, ultra-fast-exposing SBQ-photopolymer direct emulsion for imprinted sportswear printing. It resists plastisol inks—including newer, more aggressive, post-phthalate plastisols—and most washup solvents, making it easy to reclaim in automatic equipment. QLT is formulated to reduce stencil-making time (coating, drying, and exposure) in shops with high stencil throughput: its high solids content (≈ 43%) allows a thick build per coat, reducing the number of coats over conventional emulsions, facilitates quick drying, and results in better mesh bridging on coarse mesh; its exceptional photo-sensitivity reduces exposure time. Its high viscosity (≈ 7000 cps at 77º F.(25º C.) provides good coating control. Its high-contrast blue color affords easy stencil inspection. Stencils made with QLT are extremely durable and will not become tacky under high humidity conditions. QLT’s fast exposure speed will also be of interest to low volume printers with weak light sources. With added diazo and post-processing treatment with Hardener WR, QLT can be used with water-based /discharge inks.
