CDF LEXAR | Photopolymer (SBQ) Capillary Direct Film system

CDF Lexar is a series of SBQ (pure photopolymer) Capillary Direct Films for use with solvent-based inks. CDF Lexar is easy to reclaim and well suited to the printing of flat-stock graphics, plastisols for textiles, POP displays, computer-to-screen (CTS), containers, printable adhesives, and advertising specialties. The red film is coated on a matte-surfaced polyester. This imparts a slight texture to the printing surface of the stencil, thus minimizing hydrostatic attraction to the printing stock under conditions of high humidity, and electrostatic attraction under low humidity conditions. CDF Lexar is coated at thicknesses of 15 (for mesh counts of 165 or more threads /cm. ≈ 419+ /in.), 20 (100 – 165 /cm.) ( 305-420 /in.), 30 (90 – 120 /cm.) ( 230 – 350 /in.), and 50 (33 – 77 /cm.) (86 – 196 /in.).
