SKU:
  • $31.35


*Special Order*
QX-5 Red is a universal, ready-to-use, fast-exposing SBQ-photopolymer direct emulsion. Its relatively high viscosity (5000 cps) and solids content (41%) result in better mesh bridging on coarse mesh, and fast drying.

Features-At-a-Glance:

  • Fast exposing
  • Fast stencil throughput for high volume shops
  • Dependable polymerization assures durability and ink resistance
  • High (41%) solids content
  • Dries quickly
  • Better mesh bridging on coarse mesh
  • Lower Rz value yields sharper printed edges
  • High viscosity (5000 CPS)
  • Easier to control during coating
  • Solvent Resistant - Resists a wide range of solvent-based inks
  • Moisture Resistant - Will not become tacky under high humidity conditions
  • Red color - Easy stencil inspection, even on colored mesh
  • Shelf life - unopened: 1 year at 70º F. (21º C.)

Formats:

QX-5 Red is available in 28 ounce, 1 U.S. gallon, 5 U.S. gallon, and 50 U.S. gallon units.
(0.83, 3.78, 18.9, and 190 liters, respectively)
