DC240 has a high 40% solid content and is green in colour. It has a wide exposure latitude and is easy to reclaim. Water thinnable inks, UV curing and UV thinnable ink. DC240 is a dual cure emulsion with a matt flat surface ideal for inkjet applications for solvent based inks.

 

Drafting Film

drafting film

Premium, single side matt coated Polyester Drawing Film for Manual Drawing and slow Pen Plotter.

This polyester drawing film has been developed specifically for manual drawing and features an extremely fine, antistatic matt surface. It satisfies the highest requirements when drawing using China inks. The extremely fine surface produces sharp ink lines which do not spread. Any ink lines can be easily and completely removed using a moistened China ink eraser. Going over the corrected area again with a pencil eraser will produce a surface that can be redrawn without any problem.

 

Reprojet P HD

hi res pic folex small

160 micron nanoporous coated, clear transparent polyester film for the production of positive or negative film separations that can then be contact exposed to silk screens, pad or flexo plates.
The HD version offers even higher ink absorption and faster drying times and an even greater UV density range with the optimisation of print settings. Images dry super-fast due to a highly porous coating ensuring print speeds are further optimised. The film meets the highest demands with regard to image registration accuracy, dimensional stability.

All rolls are 30mtrs in length.

Compatibility

  • Prerequisite for a high ink coverag (copy density) are printers, which allow settings for high resolution and high ink loads. These various settings are often not available with the usual driver settings and can often be made for screen use only in combination with special RIP tools. Due to this reason, desktop printers (A4, A3) also often do not offer the desired coverage.
  • Dependant on ink type dye ink can produce a migrating yellowing effect.

 

Handling

  • Optimal between 15-30°C and 40-60% r.h.
  • A preconditioning period of 24 hours within the printing environment is recommended.
  • Avoid fingerprints on printing side.
  • For demanding halftone and separation work, we recommend special RIP-Software tools such as COLORGATE-Filmgate, WASATCH, PERFECTPROOF etc in combination with LF printers like EPSON Stylus pro (Ultrachrome Photoblack/K3-inks), HP Z-series & CANON iPF-series.
  • For optimisation of halftones a linearization of the printer setting is essential Dye-based image areas (inkjet-printing) show a typical absorption spectrum.Therefore a correct density measurement is possible only with an ultraviolet densitometer (eg. X-Rite 369).
  • For printers with two black inks, we recommend using Photo Black / Glossy Black.
  • To prevent sticking to the screen emulsion during exposure we suggest lightly dusting with powder.

 

Storage

  • Store in a cool and dry place at a room temperature of 15 – 25°C and at a humidity of 30 – 60%.
  • Unopened in original packaging storage time is minimum 1 year after shipment (under recommended storage conditions).
  • Cut sheet product has the print side facing downwards in the box.

 

Reprojet ES CL

hi res pic folex small

Specially coated, highly clear transparent polyester film for the production of full tone separations that can then be contact exposed to silk screens. The film offers high ink absorption capacity with a very fast drying time. Dependant on rip settings or when using print mode “double strike print”, ink coverage is excellent and high UV densities can be attained by printing with the k-ink mode. Due to its high transparency it is also ideal for overlays, templates, glass graphics etc. The film meets the highest demands with regard to image registration accuracy and dimensional stability.
