More information about Murakami screen printing photo emulsion

  • You must apply a thin layer on both sides of the mesh.
  • It makes it easy to print designs on the screen.
  • It leaves the mesh soft and smooth for subsequent personalisation with screen printing ink.

AQUASOL No. 2 (Ref. 045284)

  • Presensitised single-component photopolymer emulsion with excellent water resistance and high durability.
  • Suitable for textile applications with water-based inks.
  • Ready-to-use, it can be applied directly onto the screen without using an activator.
  • Includes a 3 g container with diazo salts to extend its durability. Just dissolve diazo with water, the equivalent of 10% of the emulsion volume, mix with the emulsion and leave to stabilise. 
  • Fast exposure with good definition and long life. It requires less exposure time than diazo photo emulsions.
  • Suitable for manual machines and automatic carousels.

ONEPOT C2 (Ref. 045285)

  • Ready-to-use presensitised single-component photopolymer emulsion. No diazo required.
  • Suitable for solvent-based inks, plastisol inks and UV inks.
  • Highly sensitive, even to white light, and faster exposure.
  • Excellent solvent resistance.
  • Good resolution and fine detail reproduction.
  • High-density emulsion.
  • Very long shelf life. The emulsion holds after several months in storage.
  • Suitable for use with manual machines and automatic carousels.

SP-9500 (Ref. 045286)

  • Suitable for all inks: solvent-based, UV and water-based.
  • Requires diazo powder before application. A 3 g container is included in the box. Dissolve diazo with water, the equivalent of 10% of the emulsion volume, and mix with the emulsion.
  • Excellent solvent resistance and great durability.
  • Outstanding resolution and good reproduction of fine details.
  • Easy to reclaim with screen printing emulsion remover. You will find it in Related Products (Ref. 012373).

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

  • We recommend filtering the mixed emulsion with screen mesh before putting it on the squeegee to coat the screen. This will help you prevent pinholes and fisheyes.
  • We recommend cleaning the screen and the working area so that the coating is thin and uniform. Any dust particles could leave pinholes in the design.
  • The emulsion layer must be the right thickness. If it’s too thick, it will come out blurred. If it’s too thin, the print will be jagged.
  • Apply in a dark and closed place. You can use a red or yellow light bulb to see the process.
  • Store in a cool place away from UV light.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

  • Wash and remove grease and any foreign contaminants with a degreaser.
  • When using SP-9500 emulsion, mix with diazo before applying to the mesh.
  • Before use, stir the emulsion and leave to stabilise for a day. Filter the emulsion with a 250T mesh to prevent fisheyes or air bubbles if you plan on using it immediately. When using Aquasol, leave to stabilise for 1 hour or until the bubbles disappear.
  • Slowly coat the screen with a squeegee to avoid air bubbles. When using SP-9500 and One Pot C2, dry the emulsion at 40ºC before placing the pattern.
  • Dry the screen in a warm room, but don’t use high temperatures to preserve the emulsion’s quality and stability.
