Fujifilm Sericol: Screen Emulsion

March 28, 2006
Fujifilm Sericol recently announced the introduction of Dirasol Enduro, a new emulsion for screenprinting applications that require high mechanical and abrasion resistance. Dirasol Enduro was specifically developed for use with the aggressive frit pastes typically used in the ceramic and glass printing industries. It is a blue, diazo-photopolymer emulsion with high solids and medium viscosity, which makes it ideal for use with a wide range of meshes. Enduro's unique chemistry has been proven to significantly increase screen life, enabling longer print runs between screen changes, and leading to the dual benefits of reduced production downtime and increased manufacturing efficiencies. Ceramic and glass printers using Dirasol Enduro have reported increases in run lengths of up to 25% compared to their previous emulsions.
