CTS-FAST/CTS-FAST BLUE | Very Fast, Pure Photopolymer (SBQ) Screen Emulsion for Computer-to-Screen Exposure Systems

CTS-FAST is an SBQ-sensitized, pure photopolymer direct emulsion intended for exposure using CST UV units and for printing using conventional UV or solvent-based inks. It is recommended for the production of general large-format work, such as posters, outdoor advertising, and other large-scale industrial applications. CTS-FAST is a ready-to-use, high solids emulsion that requires as few as one coat for a good printing edge, even on coarse fabric. CTS-FAST has excellent coating properties, good solvent resistance, and durability. The very fast exposure speed of CTS-FAST makes it ideal for pixel exposure—and, in turn, allows faster throughput, as well as savings on expensive CTS bulbs. Viscosity: 4500 – 5500 centipoise.
