Synopsis...

Multi-lamination for high build applications

Multi-laminating sheets of Capillex 80 together is a useful technique for producing 100 micron (4 thou/mil) stencils for high build applications such as 3D garment printing or Braille.

Top tip

Do not pre-soak multi-laminated Capillex 80 stencil before washout as this will cause them to soften and breakdown especially if they are under exposed. It is best to use a strong spray of cold water (diffuse High Pressure Gun) from a minimum of 80 cms from the print side only.
