Thread: #1 Emulsion...

  1. #1

    Default #1 Emulsion...

    In your opinion what is the best quick exposing emulsion. I usually use Chroma Tech PL but recently I switched to Ulano QX 1 because it was cheaper and it didn't expose or wash out as nice. I guess that's what I get for $30 a quart as opposed to Chroma Tech at $65. Is there another brand out there I should be using?

    Also what Emulsion holds up the best for reclaiming your screens, I find the quick exposing emulsion tends to come off when I'm reclaiming.

    Thanks.

    My favorite's still Ulano TZ, but I guess it's all personal taste when you come right down to it. I only have used that and Ulano 925-WR, and the latter gave me nothing but problems on washout.

    I use qx1 .... used to use qtx.

    I find that after I nailed down the exposure time, the stuff works perfect for me.

    I'm not sure what you mean by this. Reclaiming IS taking off the emulsion. You want it to come off. You don't really want an emulsion that "holds up" when reclaiming.

    Ha, sorry my bad it was late when I posted that. I meant cleaning the screen the emulsion didn't really hold up but maybe it's because my exposure time isn't long enough. With Chroma Tech it usually only takes a minute , but with QX it takes 2:30. Thinking maybe I should burn it for 3.
