Description

Application Methods :
1. Dissolve the diazo powder in 40-100cc of water and shake well.
2. Pour diazo liquid into emulsion and mix thoroughly. (Note: use only stirrer made of wood, plastic     or stainless steel only.)
3. Sensitized emulsion should stand for at least 2 hours (preferably
overnight) to allow air bubbles caused by mixing to rise to the surface and break. Eventually this     will minimize or eliminate pinholes problem.
4. Apply coating either manually using a scoop coater or with an automatic coater.
5. Thoroughly dry screen in horizontal position, print side down. Temperature should not exceed     105°F (40°C).
6. Place emulsion side of photo positive in contact with print side of screen. Exposure times for     Solcoat WR / XL will vary depending on your set-up, see exposure guidelines for estimated     times.
7. Gently spray both sides of screen with water, wait 30 seconds then gently wash print side of     the screen. Rinse both sides thoroughly.
8. After drying apply the hardener solution to both sides of the screen.
9. Dry the stencil thoroughly for 30 minutes or the screen can be exposed to heat, not exceeding    140°F (60°C).
