QX-5 RED / QX-5 BLUE | Ultra-Fast-Exposing SBQ-Photopolymer Emulsions

QX-5 Red and QX-5 Blue are universal, ready-to-use, ultra-fast-exposing SBQ-photopolymer direct emulsions. Their high viscosity (5000 centipose) provides good coating control. Their high solids content (41%) results in better mesh bridging on coarse mesh, and fast drying. Their high contrast colors afford easy stencil inspection. QX-5 Red and QX-5 Blue are resistant to plastisol inks, most washup solvents, and some water-based inks, making them easy to reclaim in automatic stencil removal equipment or by hand. QX-5 stencils are extremely durable and will not become tacky under high humidity conditions. Both are formulated to reduce stencil-making time (coating, drying, and exposure) in shops with high stencil throughput. Their fast exposure speed will also be of interest to low-volume printers with weak light sources.
