What do you need to get started
Your existing computer and graphics software will probably do. You need software such as Corel Darw, Illustrator, Casmate to produce your artwork.
You need a good quality Laser printer or Ink Jet Printer to print your artwork out onto. If you use an Ink Jet Printer you use Ink Jet Film and if you use a laser printer you use either Vellum paper or Laser Film. ProBlast supply all of these media types. Ink Jets do produces a darker black which makes the exposure and wash out better but lasers still produce excellent results.
The artwork is exposed with Ultra Violet light to Sr200 Photo Mask Resist. The Letralite Exposure UNit is the best and easiest to use light system. See our ‘Start up kit No.2’
Our specially designed Trigger Jet wash out hose connects straight to tap water for the wash out process. SR200 washes out in normal water very quickly leaving a perfect replication of the original artwork.
