Fotecoat 1915 WR Emulsion is an easy to use emulsion that requires sensitizing by the DIR-AD System.  Slower to exposure (6-10mins) than Fotecoat 1833 but is less senstive to accidental UV exposure i.e sunlight, fluorescent lights

Application advantages

− 41% solids content.

− Medium viscosity, appropriate for meshes between 45T and 120T

− Fotecoat 1915 WR Emulsion is a water resistant emulsion that can be printed with most inks containing water and little solvents.

− A longer exposure renders the stencil more resistant against abrasion and therefore allows to print longer runs.

− Fotecoat 1915 WR Emulsion can be decoated.

Coating technique and stencil build-up 

Because of the relatively high viscosity of Fotecoat 1915 WR Emulsion it is recommended to degas the emulsion after sensitizing during a few hours.

Mesh Coating Stencil thickness below mesh
43T multifilament 1/2 20 microns
43T monofilament  1/1 20 microns
77T monofilament 1/2 15 microns
120T monofilament 1/1 14 microns

Fotecoat 1915 WR Emulsion is ideal for machine coating. If necessary, the emulsion can be diluted with water to reach a lower viscosity.

Stencil quality

The definition is excellent. The high solids content allows to reach a flat stencil surface combined with excellent mesh bridging.  The resolution is good.

Stocking

− Unsensitized: up to 1 year

− Sensitized, at 20°C: 1 - 2 weeks

− Pre-coated screens stored

 in complete darkness at 20°C:: 3 weeks

Decoating

Click here for all Emulsion Removers.  A high pressure gun is recommended.

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

Post-exposure

Once the stencil is washed-out and dryed it can be exposed again under the sun, day light fluorescent tubes or with the standard exposure lamp; it is recommended to make the post-exposure without the vacuum frame so that no glass between the lamp and the stencil interferes with light absorption.

Fotecoat 1915 WR Emulsion Reviews

5.0/5 based on 1 customer reviews

  • Excellent product! diazo and emulsion can be mixed under yellow bug light / yellow safe light no problem, I print with water base inks and it holds up well. I expose under a 5oo watt Mercury Vapour lamp for 20 mins, with 1 coat of emulsion per side onto 43T (white mesh), I let it dry overnight in drying rack or fan assisted. Also easy to position your film positive onto emulsion under yellow bug or yellow safe light once coated and dry, without ruining the emulsion. prior to actual exposure under your lamp. best to use gloves when coating your screen as it can stain your fingers.
