TRIFECTA is a ready-to-use, extremely fast exposing and durable, violet-colored SBQ-dual
cure direct emulsion for imprinted sportswear printing with water-based, discharge and plastisol
inks, including post-phthalate formulations. Properly prepared, TRIFECTA stencils do
not require any sensitizers or hardeners to withstand the most aggressive textile inks
on the market*. All the TRIFECTA stencils require to obtain durability is sufficient UV-light
for exposure and post-exposure.
TRIFECTA is formulated for compatibility with stationary and scanning CTS (computer-
to-screen) exposure sources, including LED-based units. For maximum resolution and
wider exposure latitude, yellow mesh usage is recommended with conventional exposure
systems and with CTS exposure units.
TRIFECTA features fairly high viscosity (6500 centipoise at 25º C.) which provides good
coating control, even on coarse mesh. Its high solids content facilitates fast drying, good
buildup of EOM per coating stroke and, thus, good printed edge definition.
*In the rare cases, where 10,000 prints or more are required with aggressive ink
media, diazo or chemical hardening may be used.
