Description: OPTIONE is a pre-sensitized emulsion. This durable, quick exposing emulsion is for use with Plastisol inks. It coats smoothly and evenly with pinhole-free coverage, sharp edges, and excellent resolution.
Uses: Can be used with Plastisol Inks.
Instructions: OPTIONE does not require any diazo mix. Emulsion comes ready to use. Lightly stir before use and apply to a degreased, clean and dry screen, using a scoop coater for easy application. Allow emulsion to fully dry, in a light safe environment, before exposure.
Exposure: Many factors affect exposure times. When using any emulsion for the first time, we recommend running a “step wedge or exposure test” to figure out your exact exposure times. This simple test will save you time, money and frustration. After figuring out your exposure time, try to eliminate all variables, such as location, temperature, coating thickness, emulsion type, so your exposure process can be easily repeatable.
Clean-up / Reclaiming: Emulsion Removers – Any Optima , SAATI or Optima Brand Emulsion Remover.
Storage: Store in a cool area, away from heat. A refrigerator is a great storage tool for emulsion and can slightly extend shelf life. DO NOT FREEZE. Emulsion that has been frozen will not work properly and should be discarded. Do not allow air or outside light into emulsion container, as this can decrease product life, or ruin the emulsion.
Shelf Life: Opened: 6-8 months. Unopened: up to 1 year.
NOTE: Environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity can cause emulsion to expire more rapidly. *ONLY USE THIS EMULSION IN A LIGHT SAFE ENVIRONMENT.
