    Default Holden's Direct Emulsion

    Has anyone used Holden's Direct Emulsions from Valley Litho. Will that work with water-based inks?? Is it a decent product?
    What is the difference between #206 and #250??

    holdens is OKAY as long as you have a good exposing unit and washout area. holdens has destroyed a few screens of mine over the years, and to be honest, i dont even use the shit anymore. i spend the extra money to get good emulsion that i can trust.
    206 is for oil based 250 is waterbased... or the other way around.

    All the emulsion manufacturers make water resistant emulsions.

    Kiwo, Autotype, Chromaline, Ulano, Murikami, etc etc.

    Just read their literature. or ask at your local supplier. If you are doing shirts and posters, using plastisol and WB inks, then get a dual cure that is rated for both.

    I've got a pretty ghetto rig and I use Ulano QTX (water-based pink stuff). I love it. Even though my exposing unit is made from Home Depot parts, QTX seems to work great for what I need, great detail. Burnt in 5 minutes with 2 "U" bulbs.

    Great - Thanks guys!
    Where would you suggest the best place to get the Ulano is?? We have found so many suppliers for so many different things.. but haven't made up our minds on the emulsion yet.
