Background Info on Pre-Sensitized Emulsions
This emulsion is ready to use from the bottle. 1-part emulsions typically expose faster than dual diazo emulsions. AP blue is best used with a good light source such as an exposure unit. Pre-Sensitized emulsion is very tough and best for long. Although it’s a pre-sensitized emulsion you can purchase diazo and mix in enough for the job, your screen will last longer and is good when working with Water Based inks.
Prep your screen before coating anything. We recommend Ecotex Hyper Haze, it will degrease your screen and give the emulsion a clean surface to stick to. It’s recommended you eliminate any UV light from entering the room and work under a yellow light. Write down the day you opened the emulsion on the bottle to better keep track of your chemicals.
