Screen Printing Emulsion
Emulsion plays the biggest key role in the outcome of a great screen print, especially when it comes to applying emulsion to screen. For example, selecting the correct type of emulsion for the ink that is being squeegeed through the screen. Next is the thickness of the coated emulsion on the screen and this can also be affected by the screen mesh count, using the rounded side or sharper side of the emulsion coater, and how many passes you coat each side.
Once the screen is coated using these factors of emulsion and mesh counts, you are ready to burn or expose the screen using an LED screen printing exposure unit. Setting the correct optimal exposure time can get the best results in exposing every bit of detail need for the ink to product the finest print.
