ChromaTech WR is Chromaline's latest water-resistant pure photopolymer emulsion. It features dual cure technology built into a ready-to-use universal formula, which can be used with both plastisol AND water-based inks.
ChromaTech WR is designed for textile screen printing offering superior durability to water based and discharge inks as well as the press cleaning solvents used when printing plastisol inks. Due to its high solid content, ChromaTech WR is most often applied with a 1X1 coating. Just two simple coatings reduces your drying time and consumes less product per screen (more screens per gallon). ChromaTech WR offers extremely fast exposure which in large shops translates to substantial time savings. ChromaTech WR delivers premium performance and cost savings. We recommend that you quantify these savings when comparing ChromaTech WR to other alternatives.
Fast Exposure: Eight to nine times faster than typical two-part emulsions; thereby cutting the cost of screen making time.
High Solid Content - 45-47%: Minimizes a loss of thickness after drying. A gallon of ChromaTech WR goes a long way. Most ChromaTech WR coatings are optimized at 1x1 with sharp side of scoop coater.
High Viscosity - Approximately 15,000cps: Holds the emulsion in place during coating more easily maintaining uniformity. The higher viscosity also makes ChromaTech WR less prone to dripping and permits a quick build-up of a thick stencil when desired.
Pre-sensitized: Comes ready to use with an extremely long shelf life.
High Definition: Delivers sharp edges and excellent mesh bridging over most all mesh counts and structures.
Long Print Runs: Designed with advanced photopolymers for extreme resistance to water based and discharge inks as well as the press cleaning solvents used when printing plastisol inks. Despite its exceptional durability, ChromaTech WR remains easy to reclaim.
CTS Imaging Compatible: Field tested and proven highly suitable for CTS imaging technology.
