Fotecoat 1833 Blue Solo Emulsion is a high performance solo emulsion that requires no sensitizer to be added. Very quick exposure times (30seconds - 2mins). Will begin curing with any exposure to UV light i.e. sunlight, fluorescent lights.
Fotecoat 1833 Blue Solo Emulsion Features
- Ready to use emulsion
- Blue, 45% solid content
- Resistant to plastisol, water based, sublimation and discharge inks
- Outstanding abrasion and humidity resistance
- Excellent print definition on any mesh
Fotecoat 1833 Blue Solo Emulsion Applications Advantages
- Resistant to discharge inks without adding Diazo or hardening with catalyst
- Exposes 8 times faster than Diazo or dual-cure emulsions
- Can be coated wet on wet without intermediate drying
Coating technique and stencil build-up (coating trough .75 mm R)
Stencil Thickness below mesh
- Fotecoat 1833 Blue Solo Emulsion has high sensitivity to UV light and is suitable for use with DLE machines
- Many variables, such as lamp type and age, distance from lamp to screen, mesh type and coating thickness, can affect exposure time
- Perform an exposure test a exposure calculator (21 Step Sensitivity Guide) to determinate correct exposure time for a complete cure
- Ensure that all surfaces (emulsion, film and glass) are free of dust to minimize pinholes
- Contact the emulsion side of the positive with the substrate side of the screen and secure in position before placing the screen in a suitable vacuum frame
- Post expose with daylight or exposure lamp to produce a more water-resistance stencil!
- Perfect mesh bridging is possible
- After wash-out the stencil is very hard and has low swell characteristics
This ready-to-coat emulsion should be stored in a closed can, protected from direct a light. Protect also against freezing.
- Unsensitized, 18-25ºC storage - 2 years
- Pre-coated screens in total darkness at 20ºC - up to a week

The longer the exposure, the better the through-curing of the stencil. If necessary make a post exposure. Both render the decoating easier.
