Ulano CDF Direct-Film System—The CDF system comprises a series of presensitized, direct system photographic stencil films suited to a broad range of inks and applications. CDF Direct-Film is adhered to screens still wet from the degreasing rinse. Water held in the fabric softens the film emulsion, which is attracted (by capillary action) up into the mesh structure. A single squeegee stroke skims off excess water, controlling the thickness of the stencil and speeding drying, the polyester backing is removed and the screen is ready for exposure and washout with plain water.

  • CDF—For a wide range of applications with normal solvent inks.
  • CDF/QSR—For pure photopolymer stencils with complete solvent resistance.
  • CDF/QT—For pure photopolymer stencils with plastisol and some water resistance.






Frames & Chases

Draw-Bar Frames By Diamond Chase An Olec Company—The Draw-Bar Frame system is a U- shaped channel with an enclosed fabric locking bar that is drawn outward with numerous bolts to tension and adjust the screen The ease of the locking system allows for excellent fabric installations and alignment. The ability to adjust on-press mis-registration within the frame itself makes it the most accurate system available.

Sefar-Hurtz Rigid Aluminum Frames—Available in many standard profiles, as well as custom sizes. Engineered for strength, warp resistance and long life.
