For Machine coating as well as hand coating of Rotary  Screens of all mesh count in Textile Printing.

Easy, very smooth and uniform coating layer Easy  Development for Textile Engraving


Chemically and Mechanically resistance to all Printing Pastes After Polymerization For 2 Hrs. at 180C


The emulsion will be well mixed with sensitizer One Day Prior to use & keep Ovemight at cool and dry place for Textile Engraving. In order to get Uniform & even Coating layer Take 1 Kg of Photo Emulsion MR-100 in a clean vessel & also take 50 ml. of sensitizer. Mix them together for sometime till the colour of Emulsion is changed to light uniform green. Viscosity of the Emulsion can be changed by adding DISTILLED WATER depending upon mesh of the screen & technique of coating - i.e. machine coating or hand coating. Filter this emulsion with bolting cloth & close the vessel for 1 hour in cool dark place so that all the air bubbles are disappeared.

Machine Coating

In this method Emulsion is applied automatically to Textile screen in single action & one cycle of operation from top to bottom & it forms smooth adhesion between emulsion & screen so that practically no touching is required & pinholes hardly ever occur. Viscosity of the emulsion can be diluted by adding distilled water to suit the machine coating.

Hand Coating

In this type of technique round rings are inserted on both sides of rings & it is placed on floor in upright position & after that emulsion is applied to screen at even speed by using circular rubber squeegee from bottom to top & put the screen in dryer. Depending upon the mesh of the screen additional 3 to 4 coats are required by repeating the above procedure.

Drying the screen

After applying the emulsion the screen is transferred to dryer & dried by heating air approximately 30 C. & drying it to a relative humidity at 40%. In case of hand coating, if you are coating the screen for 2nd & 3rd time, it is important that the first coat be thoroughly dried before the subsequent coat is applied. Moisture remains present in coated screen even when the screen feels dry to touch.

Exposing the Screen

Exposing is one of the most important factors in achieving fine image & sharpness in Textile Printing. The important aspect is deciding exposing time which depends on mesh of the screen, thickness of coating, light source for Photography & image pattern. Photo Emulsion is extremely sensitive to ultraviolet light & takes little time for photography. If exposing machines are fitted with metal halide lamps or xenon lamps then exposing time of 2 to 4 minutes are sufficient. Thus time of exposing varies from 2 minutes to 7 minutes depending upon light sources & exposure should himself determine the time.

Developing the Screen

Immediately after exposure, the screen is taken for developing where it is immersed in water for 5 to 10 minutes. The lacquer not exposed is removed into tank with rubber foam thoroughly both from inside & outside the screen till the image comes out clearly. Use of spray gun is desirable for removal of excess lacquer left behind after developing in the tank. Open areas in the screen are checked under light on touching stand & closed by means of brush

Polymerization - Curing by Heat

After the screen is developed & dried (at room temperature) it is kept in polymeriser (Heater) for curing. The temperature in the chamber should be 170 C. to 180 C. throughout & constant & screen should be kept for at least one & half hour which ensures complete resistance to chemicals. It should be ensured that temperature is maintained throughout, in the chamber. Generally it happens that temperature in the chamber varies considerably between top & bottom. To eliminate this it is desirable to turn the screen after 45 minutes.

It should be observed that colour of the screen is uniform throughout from top to bottom after curing, otherwise screen is under-cured & creates problem. It is here that the screen acquires its final chemical & mechanical properties.

Endring Glue

The last stage in the process of preparing the screen for rotary printing is gluing of endring from both the side so that it can resist considerable amount of force during printing speed
