Screen-Print Emulsions

Autotype Direct emulsion Family of Products
Our 25-year history of emulsion development culminates in the most refined Autosol range to date. It's a streamlined product line in a slick new package, with seven outstanding direct emulsions that give you unrivaled performance, regardless of the application. Selecting the right product for the job has never been easier!

Most Autosol Direct Emulsions now employ the Direct Addition Diazo Method. Simply add the powdered sensitizer directly into the emulsion and stir well.

KIWO Direct Emulsions—Kiwocol Poly-Plus: Diazo-Photopolymer Direct Emulsions:

  • KIWOCOL POLY-PLUS SRX—As the industry's highest quality emulsion, the optimized formula of POLY-PLUS SRX offers unsurpassed excellence in resolution for close tolerance work such as halftone reproduction for 85 LPI and higher. The choice for any graphic ink system as well as short runs with water-based graphic ink systems.
  • KIWOCOL POLY-PLUS SWR and KIWOCOL POLY-PLUS SWR RED—Enables you to reproduce quality printed images with the most popular ink systems available today - an excellent choice for close tolerance printing. High resistance to solvents and moisture make a very durable stencil that is suitable for long runs on a wide variety of substrates.
  • KIWOCOL POLY-PLUS S and KIWOCOL POLY-PLUS S undyed—Our most popular product with screen printers year after year, POLY-PLUS S offers outstanding copying properties. It is highly suitable for halftone reproduction up to 85 LPI or other fine detail work. Its solvent resistance gives it superior strength against most solvents and ink washes, while remaining durable in humid environments.
  • POLY-PLUS HWR—Produces a highly water resistant stencil designed for use with water based inks in long run applications. Due to its high mechanical and abrasion resistance, HWR is also ideal for ceramic inks as well as roll to roll printing of wallpaper, rugs, glass and other abrasive substrates.
  • POLY-PLUS HV—A high viscosity/high solids content emulsion for very thick emulsion build-up on coarse to medium mesh counts

KIWO Direct Emulsions—POLYCOL: SBQ-Photopolymer Direct Emulsions:

  • POLYCOL NeXT TX5Specifically formulated for the garment printer. NeXT TX5 features ultra-fast exposure, outstanding coating properties and good resistance for long print runs with plastisol inks. It offers good performance with weak light sources while the low viscosity allows quick emulsion buildup on all mesh counts.

Photopolymer Sensitized Emulsions

  • Chroma/Tech® PL—The "textile emulsion" for plastisol ink users. High solids gives good buildups with fewer coats, saving time and providing more screens per gallon. Because it speeds up the entire process - coating, dry times and exposure speed - Chroma/Tech PL offers benefits to both large and small accounts alike.
  • Chroma/Tech® PL-2—This new photopolymer emulsion is ideal for textile printers seeking accuracy when doing fine detail work, halftones and four color process work. Fast exposing with excellent image quality. Excellent coating on high mesh counts. Ultimate quality at a low price.
  • Spike CT-420D—Designed to optimize at the 420 nanometer spectral point, Spike CT-420D photopolymer emulsion allows for fast, accurate exposures. Spike CT-420D has high solids allowing for easy coating on low or high mesh counts.

Murakami Photocure Series—Murakami is introducing a new series of pure and diazo photopolymer direct emulsions, Photocure that are affordably priced without compromising high quality stencil performance.
