Easy Coat CT 2018

Easy Coat is a Diazo sensitised dual-cure general purpose photo-emulsion. It has 39% solids content and medium viscosity. You can achieve good definition and excellent durability with this emulsion. Easy Coat has excellent resistance to water based products. This emulsion is also resistant to Solvent and UV inks for short runs. The emulsion is suitable for mesh counts 21 to 90. Wash up with soapy water, white spirit or General Purpose Cleaner depending on the ink used. The surprising feature of this water resistant emulsion is the ease of reclaim when correctly exposed. The use of strong solvents during wash up may make reclaim harder. Easy Coat has a 10 to 12 months shelf life unsensitised, once the sensitiser is mixed the shelf life will be 1 month, keeping it refrigerated (not frozen) will extend the shelf life even further. For the best results use an exposure calculator to determine the correct lamp settings.

Rain Coat CT 2019

Rain Coat is a Diazo Sensitised Photo-Emulsion. It has 38% solids content and a medium viscosity. It has both excellent definition and durability. This emulsion is very resistant to water and plastisol inks. The emulsion is suitable for mesh counts 32 to 120. Wash up with soapy water or white spirit. Stronger cleaning solvents are not recommended for use with this emulsion. You can use our post hardener to achieve greater resistance when using on very long runs. This will make reclaiming more difficult. This emulsion is generally harder to reclaim than the Easy Coat Emulsion, under exposure can make reclaim difficult. Rain Coat has a 4 to 6 months shelf life unsensitised, once the sensitiser is mixed the shelf life will be 1 to 2 months, keeping it refrigerated (not frozen) will extend the shelf life even further. For the best results use an exposure calculator to determine the correct lamp settings.

Fine Coat CT 2023

Fine Coat is a low viscosity premium fast drying dual-cure photo-emulsion recommended for all types of Graphic printing. Fine Coat’s high solid content (40%) and low viscosity makes for strong durability and excellent resolution. Fine Coat is compatible with all ink systems. It is highly resistant to Solvent inks, UV ink systems, Plastisol as well as short run Water-based inks. The emulsion is suited to mesh counts 49 to 165. Wash up with white spirit or General Purpose Cleaner depending on the ink used. Fine Coat has the widest latitude of our emulsions and can be coated up in normal subdued light. Fine Coat has a 4 to 6 month shelf life unsensitised, once the sensitiser is mixed the shelf life will be 1 to 2 months, keeping it refrigerated (not frozen) will extend the shelf life even further. For the best results use an exposure calculator to determine the correct lamp settings.


Matt Coat CT 2026

Matt Coat is a Diazo Sensitised Photo-Emulsion. It has 38% solids content and a medium viscosity. It has both excellent definition and durability. Matt Coat is resistant to Solvent and Plastisol. The emulsion is suited to mesh counts 49 to 165. Wash up with white spirit or General Purpose Cleaner depending on the ink used. This emulsion has a matt finish which makes it ideal for printing shiny material and soft PVC. Matt Coat has a 10 to 12 months shelf life unsensitised, once the sensitiser is mixed the shelf life will be 1 month, keeping it refrigerated (not frozen) will extend the shelf life even further. For the best results use an exposure calculator to determine the correct lamp settings.

Tuff Coat CT 2028

Tuff Coat is a Pre Polymmer Diazo sensitised photo-emulsion. It has 48% solid content and a high viscosity. It has good edge definition and excellent durability. Tuff Coat is resistant to all types of water based inks including discharge as well as plastisols. This emulsion is suited to mesh counts of 10 to 62. Wash up with soapy water or white spirit depending on the ink used. Tuff Coat is our most durable emulsion with high mechanical resistance. Once the sensitiser is mixed the shelf life will be 1 to 2 months, keeping it refrigerated (not frozen) will extend the shelf life even further. For the best results use an exposure calculator to determine the correct lamp settings.

Multi Coat CT 2029

Multi Coat is a Pure Polymer Emulsion. This emulsion was developed to produce extra thick screen stencils, so is only suitable for Hi Build inks. This emulsion has a very high viscosity. The more coats you apply of the emulsion the thicker the screen stencil will be. We recommend between four and twelve coats to give a good hi build to the ink. The emulsion is suited to mesh counts 10 to 43. This emulsion is already sensitised so is ready to use straight away, keeping it refrigerated (not frozen) will extend the shelf life of this product. When exposing the stencil extra time is required and a very good film positive. When you wash out the stencil allow extra time for washing and soaking. A gentle spray will give the stencil very sharp edges and this will be reproduced in the print.

Emulsion Coating Trough
Emulsion Coating Trough

We stock many sizes of coating trough. Our troughs are made from extruded Aluminium. The special moulded edge allows for the correct depth of emulsion to be applied to the mesh. The emulsion depth is achieved by applying multiple strokes on the squeegee side of the frame. We can supply lengths of coating trough which you can cut to size and clip on the ends.
