This PVA-SBQ emulsion is ready to use.
There is no need to add sensitizer.
It is important to remove any contamination,
residual inks, cleaning chemistry, or general
dirt and dust. Murakami 701 Haze/Ghost
Remover (a non-caustic water soluble liquid)
will remove residual ink and/or emulsion.
Murakami 801 Screen Degreaser will help
eliminate any further contaminants.
Completely dry the screen before coating.
• Use a clean dry coating trough that has
 a nick free surface for smooth coating.
• Apply one or two coats of emulsion to the
 print side. Rotate the frame 180 degrees
 and apply one or two coats of emulsion
 to the squeegee side.
• Additional coats may be added to the
 print side if thicker stencils are required.
Dry the coated screen horizontally with the
print side down in a clean light safe area.
The following will help to ensure complete
drying:
• 86° to 104° degrees F (30° to 40° C)
• 30% to 50% relative humidity
• Good air circulation
The use of a screen drying cabinet with
heated airflow can help in maintaining
these conditions.Photocure Blu Photocure Blu Photocure Blu

• Use Murakami 501, 505 or 507 Screen
 Cleaner to remove all excess ink from the
 frame.
• Remove the emulsion with Murakami 601,
 605, or a solution of Strip Super-P. Rinse
 thoroughly.
• Use Murakami 701 to remove haze and
 ghost if required.
• Degrease with Murakami 801, rinse both
 sides thoroughly and let dry.
Store the emulsion in a cool dry area. Unsensitized
emulsion has a shelf life of at
least one year when stored at room
temperature.
Use Murakami PVA-SBQ emulsion
within one year for best results.
Coated screens may be stored for up to
one month when kept under the following
conditions.
• 59° to 77° degrees F (15° to 25° C)
• 30% to 50% relative humidity
Suitable for use with water based and
discharge inks when hardened with
Murakami Hardener and/or Hardener A&B.
Stencils treated with Hardener A&B
will not be reclaimable.
Clean the film positives and vacuum frame
glass prior to exposure to minimize
pinholes. Exposure is affected by mesh
color, emulsion type, coating thickness,
lamp type and the age of the bulb itself.
For best results use an exposure
calculator to determine the correct
exposure time. It is important that a
lamp designed for exposing screen
printing emulsions is utilized.
Note: The use of film positives that are
either frosted or have weak black density
can reduce resolution and definition
qualities of the coated screen.

Note: All exposure times listed above are
suggested times using a 5KW Metal Halide
lamp at a distance of 40”.
Gently spray both sides of the screen with
lukewarm water, wait a few seconds to allow
emulsion to soften then wash print side of
screen until image is fully open. Rinse both
sides thoroughly and dry. The use of a drying
cabinet or fans is recommended to dry the
screen.
