Estimated Base Exposure Times
time is based off 40w standard fluorescent tubes at 4-6" away from screen; coated once on each side of the screen


Ulano 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 ultrafast-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).  

NOTE - The product image is intended to show an approximate color of the product when applied to the screen.  Actual color may vary.  Product listing does not include screen and / or scoop coater.

Emulsion Exposure Differences
Proper screen exposure must take many factors into account – the emulsion type, coating thickness, exposure unit, etc.  As a general guideline for the different emulsion types (diazo, dual cure, and photopolymer) use these times as a reference. 

Photopolymer – These are typically the fastest exposing emulsions, with many exposing correctly from 30-50 seconds.  The shortest times can be seen when using a newer LED-type exposure unit. 

Dual Cure – If you have established a good exposure time with photopolymer emulsions, you can typically add 90 seconds (1.5 minutes) to that time for most dual cure emulsions.

Diazo - If you have established a good exposure time with photopolymer emulsions, you can typically add 210 seconds (3.5 minutes) to that time for most diazo emulsions.

These times will depend heavily on your exposure unit and should only be considered as a starting point.

This is definitely our favorite emulsion for our manual print shop. Lasts well, quick exposure times and holds image details surprisingly well even on lower mesh counts. I've tried other types but always come back to Orange because it's so easy to use!

I really like this emulsion. Quick exposure time, no slime left over. I dont have to worry about a clogged stencil with this emulsion. This is our new go to emulsion

Great product switched to this from diazo after getting a sample at the trade show.

Switched to this emulsion from Diazo type, It has a quick exposure time and has held up really good with our manual press.

We really like this emulsion. It is easy to use and we have very good coverage with it.

Great emulsion. Dries very fast in our darkroom at 30-40% humidity. Perfect emulsion for low mesh through 196. 1/1 coating seems to work great with a decent stencil well. Reclaims with ease.

We changed to this emulsion two years ago, and never looked back. Amazing detail, smooth coating, fast exposure, holds up to long runs of 1000 plus for us on our automatic, and is less expensive than others. No reason to change again any time soon.

Got my first Gallon of this recently and have been very impressed. I had used QTX for years and never thought about changing but price made me want to try something new and I'm glad I did

Doesn't hold up as well as more expensive
Ordered and used this wanting it to be our 'go-to' emulsion and it is great for small runs - more affordable than most too. It does not hold up as well as our usual Chromaline emulsion. In our use it wore down after around 500 or so hits, whereas our Chromaline is good for thousands it seems. Good for the money and for short runs, not as durable as the better stuff.
