Building Thick Film Stencils for Special Effects Printing

CDF/Matrix is a high quality diazo-photopolymer (dual-cure) capillary film series combining exceptional imaging properties, total solvent resistance, and extremely wide exposure latitude. CDF/Matrix is easy to reclaim, even if underexposed and used with aggressive inks or washup solvents. CDF/Matrix is coated onto 300-gauge optically flat polyester base.

CDF/Matrix films are designed for general graphics printing, including highly demanding UV applications, four-color process and fine detail printing, as well as POP, industrial graphics and sportswear applications requiring excellent quality and high durability. CDF/Matrix is resistant to solvent-based, co-solvent, and UV inks, and to a wide variety of on-press cleaners and wash up solvents.

The emulsion thickness of CDF/Matrix should be matched to the mesh count that will be used for the job. If the mesh is too coarse, the resulting stencil will have low EOM (thickness of emulsion over mesh, on the printing side of the mesh), a high Rz value, and poor acutance. If the mesh is too fine, resolution will be poor, the EOM will be too thick and there may be difficulties forcing ink through the stencil.
