Film Positive Materials

Dry Film ( Ink Jet Film )

The Film is manufactured from a 100 micron polyester carrier film with a coating that provides a nano-porous layer which is receptive to the water based inkjet inks. The base film gives you excellent dimensional stability at room temperature. The coating will increase the UV Density of the ink jet ink making screen exposure easier. The films stability and UV Density makes it excellent for half tone positives as well as fine lines and block areas. The Dry Film works well with various ink jet manufactures machines, Epson Stylus (all series) HP Design jet and Canon. The printed film will dry rapidly and will be water resistant. The image on the film will harden over night but can be used straight after printing. The film positives should be stored flat, in dry (keep away from damp) and dark conditions. See price list above for our stocked sizes.

Drafting Film

Our Drafting Film provides the artist and graphic artist the ability to create a hand drawn / painted film positive. The film is very transparent, making registration easy between the different coloured layers. The film is dimensionally stable at room temperature also aiding registration. The film has one matt side for drawing onto with pen, pencil and plotter or painting with Photopaque, Indian Ink etc. The film has a thickness of 0.075mm, width of 1016mm and is available on a 25 metre roll.

Temporary Support Film

This film is very transparent and used for laying up opaque pieces of material to make a film positive or a collection of smaller positives for the production of screen print stencils. The film has an antistatic coating making layup easier.

Amber Masking Film

These products allow the screen printer to produce a film positive using a CAD cutter or plotter. The films can also be hand cut as both are transparent. Both Coloured Films are opaque to UV light so a perfect screen can be produced.

Laser Film

Our laser film can be used in all popular makes of laser printer. The laser printer produces films faster than the Inkjet printers. One problem with the laser film is the maximum size available, is only an A3 sheet. The laser films produce a less dense black than inkjet printers, how ever if you apply white spirit to the ink film the density of the black can be increased. This makes film a much better film positive and screen making easier.
