Green Galaxy CryoCoat Emulsion

29 reviews

Green Galaxy Cryocoat is a performance emulsion that offers a number of advantages for those shops that can meet its somewhat particular exposure requirements.

It is not recommended for use with exposure units smaller than 25x36, and should absolutely not be used with our DIY bulbs. For those applications, Ryonet WBP Emulsion is a better choice.

For shops that can give CryoCoat a strong enough exposure over a large enough area for consistent exposure, the emulsion offers many advantages. It holds up during long production runs for water based, discharge, and plastisol ink, without the need for chemical hardening*. It was specially formulated with the exact consistency to penetrate into the mesh and bond through the knuckles, providing superior emulsion over mesh (EOM) quality. It holds pristine detail during high output automatic production, and it reclaims easily enough to be used as any manual shop's number one choice for high performing versatile emulsion.


For long run water based/discharge production we recommend the use of Green Galaxy™ CryoPrep screen mesh degreaser and adhesion promoter.


  • Water-resistant.
  • No hardeners needed.
  • Durable enough for long print runs using water based and discharge inks
  • Holds pristine detail during automatic printing.
  • High solids concentration allows for superior penetration of mesh.
  • Extremely fast exposure time for quicker screen burning.
  • Active Additive: No additive needed (pre-sensitized)
  • Color: Green
  • Instructions: Green Galaxy™ CryoCoat Photopolymer Emulsion is pre-sensitized and ready for use. Apply to clean, degreased, and dried screen mesh with a scoop-coater using appropriate application techniques. We recommend using Green Galaxy™ CryoPrep screen mesh degreaser and adhesion promoter for long run water based/discharge production. For shorter print runs and high mesh counts, use the sharp edge of the squeegee and coat each side only one time. Be sure to rotate the screen so that you are pushing the emulsion from both sides to bond around the knuckles of the mesh. To create a thicker stencil or for longer production runs, coat up to two times per side, using the rounded edge. Allow your freshly coated screen to dry, shirt side down. Expose your screen with UV light. As with all emulsions, we recommend testing for appropriate exposure time for your unit, before exposing your design. Harden your stencil in post-exposure by duplicating the first exposure, after you have rinsed and dried the screen. This can also be accomplished by drying your screen in the sun. Reclaiming Green Galaxy™ CryoCoat is easy and works with most stencil removers or reclaimers that are available in concentrate and ready-to-use formulas. Follow proper instructions for reclaiming.
  • Shelf Life: Opened: 6-8 month
  • Exposure Variables: Exposure variables depend on mesh count, mesh color, EOM / stencil thickness, and relative humidity.  

    Lower mesh = slower exposure / Higher mesh = faster exposure

    Thicker stencil = slower exposure / Thinner stencil = faster exposure

    More moisture = slower exposure / Less moisture = faster exposure

    Yellow mesh = slower exposure / White mesh = faster exposure

  • Suggested Exposure Times:
    • FX - 450 LED: Low Mesh 2/1 Coat 8-10 Seconds
    • FX - 450 LED: High Mesh 2/1 Coat 7-8 Seconds
    • Scanning LED: 8-12 seconds 
    • Flatbed LED: 15-18 seconds 
    • Metal Halide 6000 Watt: 10-12 light units 
    • Metal Halide 3000 Watt: 20-24 light units 
    • Metal Halide 1000 Watt: 33-48 light units 
    • CFL Fluorescent Unfiltered UV - 240 Watts (X-Vactor, RXP2536): 
      • Low Mesh w/ 1/1 Coat = 50-55 seconds
      • High Mesh w/ 1/1 Coat = 45-50 seconds 

To further dial in your exposure time, we suggest running the Step Wedge test with a Step Wedge Calculator.

Helpful Hints to Ensure Your Emulsion Lasts Longer:

  • Keep in a cool area, the emulsion will break down much faster in heat. Keeping emulsion in a fridge can help to give a slightly extended shelf life, however, emulsion that has gotten to the point of freezing will no longer work properly and must be replaced.
  • Keep the emulsion lid on tight to preserve air and light leaks.
  • Gently mix the emulsion each time before use to help extend the life.
  • To ensure best results, date your emulsion once mixed and keep an extra container on hand once the emulsion is about to expire, environmental factors such as temperature and humidity can cause the emulsion to expire more quickly.*

*Environmental factors such as temperature and humidity can cause the emulsion to expire more quickly.

I recommend this product
Simplifies our shop for all jobs!

Love this for so many reasons besides I can print a zillion shirts using waterbase ink before it starts to breakdown. When we are running a really big order or a slow print process job I put the screens in the sunlight to harden while they dry or just expose it in the unit one more time. Amazed that reclaiming the screen is just as easy using the CryoCoat even after hardening it. We like simplicity and using one type of emulsion for all jobs is part of our simplified plan. I'm also a huge fan of all the Green products!

My first time using it and it was like the heavens open and Angels sang I recommend this to everyone. Green Galaxy CryoCoat Emulsion Review

Green Galaxy CryoCoat

I switched to CryoCoat over a year ago and really like how it holds up for large print runs. We use it with the XVactor exposure unit and once we dialed in the exposure times, we can burn anything at any detail. 75 seconds for halftones and about 2:30 for all other burns.

That is a great combination Jeff. Thanks for your support and your review.
