QTX is a ready-to-use, ultra-fast exposing SBQ photopolymer direct emulsion formulated for imprinted sportswear applications. QTX's high solids content provides superior coating properties, better bridging of coarse mesh, and fast drying. QTX is designed for plastisol inks, is extremely durable and reclaims easily. Do not subject to strong solvents during printing or wash-up. QTX is presensitized, and must be handled in yellow safe light conditions before exposure.
Orange is a ready-to-use SBQ-photopolymer direct emulsion formulated for imprinted sportswear printing. It is formulated with a "masking color" that reduces light scattering - the major cause of loss of resolution. With Orange, it is possible to use less costly white mesh without the closing up of fine lines and details. Despite its anti-halation color, Orange is ultra-fast-exposing! It is perfect for shops with high stencil making throughput, as well as shops with fluorescent tubes or other low-intensity light sources. Orange has high viscosity (6,000 - 8,000 centipoise) that improves control when coating screens by hand and makes it a good choice for coarse mesh. Its high solids content (44% - 46%) results in better mesh bridging and edge definition, and fast drying. Orange resists plastisols, most washup solvents, and some water-based textile inks, and it is easy to reclaim. Orange stencils are durable, will not become tacky under high humidity conditions, and have excellent wet strength and exposure latitude. Orange reduces stencil-making time-in coating (because of its high viscosity), drying (due to its high solids), and exposure (due to its high photo-sensitivity despite its "masking color".
Platinum is a ready-to-use SBQ-photopolymer direct emulsion formulated for imprinted sportswear printing and other markets. It resists plastisol inks (including newer, more aggressive, post-phthalate plastisols) and most washup solvents, making it easy to reclaim in automatic equipment or by hand. It is formulated with a gray color that reduces light scattering throughout all spectral ranges reducing loss of resolution. This coloration combines good contrast with easy see-through. It is well suited for certain computer to screen systems. Due to innovative gray coloration it exposes well throughout the thickness of the stencils. With Platinum, it is possible to use less costly white mesh without the closing up of fine lines and details. Despite its anti-halation color, Platinum is ultra-fast-exposing! It is perfect for shops with high stencil making throughput, as well as shops with fluorescent tubes or other low-intensity light sources. Platinum has high viscosity (8,000 - 10,000 centipoises) that improves control when coating screens by hand and makes it a good choice for coarse mesh. Its high solids content (40% - 41%) results in better mesh bridging and edge definition, and fast drying. Platinum stencils are durable, will not become tacky under high humidity conditions, and have excellent wet strength and exposure latitude. Platinum reduces stencil-making time-in coating (because of its high viscosity), drying (due to its high solids), and exposure (due to its high photo-sensitivity despite its "masking color").
QFX is a ready-to-use, fast exposing SBQ photopolymer direct emulsion formulated for industrial halftone and fine detail graphics printing with solvent inks. QFX has superb resolution and offers high solids content for stencils with exceptional edge definition. Recommended for fine detail and halftone printing.

Proclaim is a diazo-photopolymer (dual-cure) emulsion formulated to provide unequalled exposure latitude and ease of decoating, even if underexposed and used with aggressive inks and washup solvents. If you're having reclaiming problems, this is the way to go! Proclaim is multi-purpose, fast exposing, and provides superb resolution and acutance. Its high solids content (37%) provides better stencil build per coat, excellent bridging of coarse mesh, and fast drying. Proclaim has superb coating properties and durability and it is resistant to a wide variety of solvent-based inks, and water-based and UV coatings. Proclaim is very suitable for general purpose graphics, textile, and industrial applications. Latitude, resolution, and edge definition are excellent, which makes it ideal for fine line and halftone printing. Proclaim is light blue in color; light green with diazo added. Exposed areas revert to the original blue color, providing a built-in indicator of adequate exposure.
RLX is a multi-purpose high speed diazo photopolymer direct emulsion. RLX's very high solids content provides better stencil build per coat, excellent bridging of coarse mesh, and faster drying. RLX has superb coating properties and durability, and is resistant to a wide variety of solvent and water-based ink systems. RLX/CL is supplied clear for easier see-through registration. RLX is recommended for imprinted sportswear, P-O-P, and advertising specialty printing.
925-WR shares the main characteristics of Ulano's TZ emulsions, but with a higher solids content and even better resolution, edge definition, and exposure latitude. Stencils produced with 925WR/995WR are completely water resistant and very durable. 925WR/995WR comes with a syrup diazo sensitizer, for faster and surer mixing. Recommended for imprinted sportswear applications. PHTHALATE-FREE.

Disposal: Blue Screen Filler #60 is biodegradable and can be emptied down drains safely. Flash point: not applicable - no solvents. Available in quarts and gallons.
GEL #23 is an abrasive degreaser gel that combines the actions of Microgrit No. 2 and Screen Degreaser Liquid No. 3. The abrading action of Ulanogel #23 promotes better wetting of the mesh and adhesion of the stencil and thus longer press life. Its degreasing action removes dirt, dust, and oils from the mesh, reducing the risk of stencil failure and pinholing. Ulanogel #23 is ready-to-use and rinses off in hot or cold water. Its thixotropic character permits easy and effective preparation of larger screens held in a vertical position. Non-caustic, will not harm frames, mesh, or adhesives on stretch and glue frames. Recommended for use with all stencil systems on synthetic mesh only.
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.
Union Ink makes a full line of off the shelf products as well as custom made inks to your specific requirements. They make some of the finest textile printing plastisols on the market. From the general purpose PLUS series to the highly acclaimed MIXOPAKE Pantone® color mixing system, you can count on only the highest quality inks coming form Union Ink.
General Purpose Inks: Also known as soft hand inks, general purpose inks are used on a wide variety of garment types and colors, for direct prints and transfers, and on manual and automatic presses. Ultrasoft (PLUS/PLUE) is a general purpose ink. These inks are typically used on light colored garments.
High-Opacity Inks: To print on medium and dark-colored fabrics, you must use high-opacity inks. Mixopake (MIXO/MIXE) inks and Maxopake (PADM/PADE) inks maintain their colors even when printed on black.
Low-Bleed Inks: Dye migration, which occurs when dyes in polyester fibers dissolve into and change the color of plastisol ink is one of the most severe technical challenges in textile screen printing. Union Ink has added bleed-resistant low-bleed whites and yellows to their Mixopake (MIXO/MIXE) and Maxopake (PADM/PADE) inks. A series of inks called Polyester (POLY/ATHP) was formulated in 14 colors to help fight dye migration on 100% polyester athletic uniforms or other fabrics prone to severe dye migration.
Athletic Inks: Used for printing on nylon athletic uniforms, Athletic Gloss (PATH/PATE) is an opaque ink with a durable, high-gloss finish that will adhere to the widest variety of fabrics. For 100% polyester athletic uniforms Union manufactures the Polyester Series (POLY/ATHP), a set of 14 athletic colors that have shown great resistance to dye migration. For Lycra/Spandex or other extremely stretchy fabrics, Unistretch White or the addition of Unistretch Clear to the Athletic Gloss Series helps prevent cracking in designs that are stretched beyond normal proportions.
Process Inks: Union Ink has pioneered the development of inks for process-color printing. Our Tru-Tone (PRPL/PRPE) is the industry standard for consistent process-colors. Tru-Tone's unique chemistry causes each individual dot to return to its resting viscosity faster than competitive process inks thus minimizing dot gain and improving image sharpness.
Metallic Inks: Metallic plastisols are a unique addition to the printer's color palette. True gold and silver metallic shine is achievable with these inks. They print best through coarser mesh screens. To retain their sparkle and sheen through repeated laundering it is recommended but not required to top coat these colors with a clear finish. Metallic inks have a stunning appearance on dark garments.
Special Effect Inks: Plastisol inks are available in an amazing array of special effect formulations. Puff inks are the most popular special effect ink. Plastipuff (PLPF/PLPE) provides a high loft and an extremely opaque, durable print. Union Ink also manufactures other popular novelty inks such as Glitter (PAGL/PAGE J or S), Shimmer (PAGL/PAGE-M), Suede (PLSE/NPSU), Flash-Back (REFL/REFE), Photochromic (PHOT/PHOE) and Hi Square (3DSQ/3DSE). Flash-Trans (FLTR), is a system where printers can produce customized light-reflective designs that are safety rated for use by fire departments and other public safety workers. Union's newest addition to their special effects inks, Holographic Glitter (HALO/HALE), is a series of 10 sparkling, glitter colors formulated to produce not only a glitter effect but also emits a pearlescent or holographic look when viewed in direct sunlight or under any point light source.
Additives: There are many additives and "modifiers" that can be used with plastisol inks including extender bases, soft hand bases, curable reducers, puff additives, and thickeners. There is a solution to every ink issue that may arise. Please call with specific questions regarding modifying your inks.
Specialty Inks: Some non-textile applications require specific products to withstand durability issues and environmental conditions. Uniglaze is one of these products. It's epoxy formulation enables it to withstand severe climate and wear situations. Uniglaze is used in some military and electronics applications. Please call for information about availability and proper certifications for it's use.
