User friendly SR3000™ is a high-resolution photoresist with an inherent self-sticking quality enabling etchers to achieve the finest detail and deepest etch in the sand blasting industry. SR3000™ will turn any black and white design into a sandcarving stencil. It provides an ideal system for creating fine quality engraving on endless varieties of glass, wood, stone, ceramic, granite, marble, and soft metals. From exposing to blasting, carvers are able to get it done faster and more efficiently than ever before.
SR3000 can be processed easily with a UV light source, film print and pressurized washout unit, such as a ProBlast Hand Washer or automatic washout unit. A Plastic Burnisher is necessary to bind the processed photomask to the substrate surface and remove the photomask’s clear carrier. The ProBlast Wire Wheel Brush is also strongly recommended; this hand-held tool releases air trapped between the substrate and the photomask.
You do not need a darkroom or yellow lighting to use SR3000. The film can be safely handled in white fluorescent lighting for approximately ten minutes. Avoid any room or area that has direct or indirect UV light such open windows or doors. Sunlight will expose the film in a matter of seconds.
SR3000™ comes in 3 & 5 mil thicknesses.
3 mil is recommended for fine detailed artwork and halftoned photos.
5 mil is recommended for bold artwork, moderate to deep stage carving.
Conservatively, 12 months at room temperature.
Standard washout times begin at 45-60 seconds, depending on the mil.
SR3000™ has unmatched blast resilient properties superior to any photoresist in the industry. Blast high resolution designs without the worry of pin hole blast through.
SR3000™ is fast to use and ideal for small or large run jobs.
