Select a suitable plate type from various types and sizes. The Gallus Screeny G-Line printing plate is supplied protected against light and ready for imaging. The photo emulsion is covered with a protective film that must be removed before imaging. The screen printing plate is supplied in sheet format and with the appropriate hole pattern. On removal of the protective film, the screen printing plate can be imaged conventionally or using the CtS process. The screen printing plate’s unique surface minimizes reflection thus achieving significantly improved and finer detail resolutions. Imaging takes place without a frame, so the flat screen printing plate can be perfectly imaged under vacuum and the frame distortion that is common with conventional screen frames is completely eliminated.
After imaging, the screen printing plate is developed with water on both sides on a stretched, coarse polyester screen. After drying, the photo emulsion has an Rz value (surface roughness value) of less than 5 microns.
The stable, hard-wearing and well-insulated quick-action stretching frame is suitable for all ink systems and designed to be compatible with the most widely used screen printing presses. Special frames are available on request.
The screen printing plate is mounted on the quick-action stretching frame and fixed in place using two pressure pads. A knurled-head screw is then used to stretch the screen printing plate along one axis in one direction to a precisely predefined spring force.
Before printing, the frame’s inside edge is masked with adhesive tape. A screen printing plate can be changed in less than one minute.
The screen printing plate can be stored easily in a film folder for repeat orders.
