SCREEN MESH

From the high abrasion resistance required for ceramic printing to the ultra-fine mesh counts required within the electronics industry, Sefar offers a range of screen meshes to suit your every requirement. Browse our range of Sefar screen meshes.

SCREEN ADHESIVES

These are designed to adhere the screen mesh to the frame creating a highly chemically resistant bond between mesh and frame. Kiwo screen adhesives can be used on frames made from aluminium, steel, wood or galvanised iron and are available in either the traditional two component systems consisting of adhesive and hardener or the newer one component UV cured adhesives.

SCREEN EMULSIONS

Kiwo and Ulano photo emulsions have been considered the benchmark of quality and imaging results within the industry for many years. We offer an extensive range covering the graphic, textile and industrial markets.

While each stencil system will exhibit good resolution, mesh bridging, edge definition and exposure latitude within its field, it is especially important to select the correct emulsion for the project. Different types of emulsions offer specific advantages within their chemistry or system. The three most common emulsions are SBQ, diazo-photopolymers and diazo.

FILM

Ulano offers a wide range of film for many applications. This includes pigment inkjet film for film positives, masking and hand-cut films, indirect films as well as an extensive range of capillary films.
