Ecotex® Dual Cure “DC Pink” Screen Printing Emulsion by Screen Print Direct® is an excellent all-purpose emulsion that requires the addition of diazo. DC Pink Emulsion works with water-based, UV, and plastisol ink systems. This two part emulsion is highly resistant to plastisol & water-based inks and great for graphic screen printing as it holds high resolution. An ultra-durable solution designed for long print runs because it is extremely water-resistant. This emulsion is similar to AP Blue, however, it is recommended if you also print with water-based inks. We do not recommend this emulsion with a weak light source or DIY unit. Before use, diazo must be added and allowed to activate emulsion. Once the diazo has been mixed it is ready for use. Apply to clean, degreased, and dried screen with a scoop coater. Be sure to use appropriate application techniques. Reclaiming Ecotex® DC Pink paper and garment emulsion is easy with Ecotex® Emulsion Remover. Once diazo is added to the emulsion the product has a 2-week shelf life.
NOTE: This emulsion includes a bottle of diazo.
