Chromablue for 156 and up with normal EOM, and Saati PHW Red for low mesh high EOM stencils. I prefer a high solids pure photopolymer but our light source is 10K metal halide. If your light source is not a single point metal halide, you might be better off with a dual cure emulsion since it's way more forgiving and overall easier to work with. I don't like the dual cure because of the exposure times are 3-10 times longer depending on your light source and they typically don't have as high of solids content and it takes more work to build up a thick stencil.

Yeah Ted, I'm using Chromaline Blue as well... Reece can hook you up.

If they deem you out of their delivery circle and you don't want to pay shipping you could always have your supplies shipped to me and then come pick them up.

What do you consider as high solids? Something about 40%?

Well, emulsion companies consider 40% high, but I don't. I prefer at least 45% and higher.

If you want a fast shoot emulsion use what Alan uses. I used to use the Chromaline Blue as well but I prefer duel cure emulsion as I get way better detail (and that is even with a 3140 exposure unit) and the stuff reclaims so much easier. I use Ulano Proclaim/CL and you can get that from Reece also.

I would say the emulsion choice is determined in parts by what type of ink and substrate you are printing onto, the mesh count used and detail you are wanting to achieve printing, definitely the light source and it's strength in exposure, and length of the print run.
Screenmaking is one of the most underestimated and important components of the whole process, it's all in the setup! I use saati purple and macdermid autotype 7000.

ChromaBlue here too. It is at 52% solids.
Very fast on exposure time, easy to wash out exposed and easy to reclaim.
