Green Galaxy CryoCoat Emulsion - Gallon
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.
"CryoCoat Green Galaxy Emulsion has allowed us to eliminate the need for multiple emulsions in our shop. Previously we were using different emulsions for the various inks we print for our clients but after months of testing we have found the green galaxy emulsion preforms well on a wide selection of inks including plastisol, waterbase, hsa and discharge style inks. We have been able to use this emulsion for our award winning simulated process printing as well as our basic spot color work without having to make any procedural changes. It has allowed us to streamline our pre press department largely in part to having a pre mixed emulsion that can work for any job thrown our way from high qty discharge prints to full color high detailed printing. The last major benefit we have seen is we are yielding 40 more screens per gallon of emulsion then we had been with our previous go to emulsion. Coating, imaging, and reclaiming have never been so easy for us using this emulsion. From basic spot color to 100,000+ pcs discharge runs this emulsion has proven itself to preform under any print scenario we throw at it."

No additive needed (pre-sensitized)
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.
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
Helpful Hints to Ensure Your Emulsion Lasts Longer Once Mixed:
- Keep in a cool area, 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 emulsion to expire more quickly.*
Green Galaxy CryoCoat Emulsion (WOW)
by Branding Shack
Just started to use the new Green Galaxy, and What a difference. The faster developing time result in a very sharp image, and is much easier to use than other Emulsions. And when it comes to washout is a much easier and complete washout. Having one product to use on waterbase ,plastisol and discharge is Fantastic. Thank You RYONET for such a Great improvement in A small shop production.

This stuff coats real nice, holds up very well, and exposes real fast with great detail. Haven't touched the Hardenx since using this.
CyroCoat w/ DIY UV light bulb works great together
I finally was able to move towards the CyroCoat emulsion from RXP & WPB emulsions. I don't have a exposure unit yet so I've had to use the sun to expose the RXP & WPB emulsions. I've tried to use the sun light but seems to burn too fast to calculate a correct time, but I've bought 2 DIY UV unfiltered bulbs and this works great with it. I plan to keep using CyroCoat for basic all purpose use.

When we started printing more water based inks, we needed an emulsion that would hold up to long runs of water based inks. CryoCoat has proven to be the solution we needed for our shop. Handles plastisol with ease, and when post exposed, will hold up to discharge and water based inks for long runs.
With plastisol, water base and discharge printing at our shop. It does not get any better than this!!

I have been through a lot of different emulsions and cryocoat is absolutely amazing. Last longer than any emulsion we have ever had for long discharge runs. I only have great things to say about it. Worth every penny.
Waterbased? Look no further, you already found the one!
Great emulsion! Exposes fast and if you double expose it, it is the best you can find for waterbased inks. I will not use anything else! It has long shelf life and there is no mixing. It comes ready to use from the get go.
Fairly new to screen printing. I have tried a few different emulsions and so far this is the best and easiest to work with.
Amazing product. Great price. We use this in our shop everyday and nothing else. This emulsion is great for all inks and will hold up flawlessly during long runs.
coats great but...
The thickness is great to coat with but dialing in the exposure time can use up a third of a quart in futility. Have extra allotted time to get used to this stuff.
If your not using this emulsion, you should!

No mixing required, ready right out of the bucket, coats very easily, exposes quickly and last for long print runs. A few weeks ago we had a 6500 piece job that required discharge inks and the screens held up great throughout the complete job. I don't know if this standard but I was impressed! No emulsion hardener was used simply decreased our screens with CryoPrep and let out screens dry outside for 20 min once exposed. The reclaiming is easy and effortless with the Sgreen Emulsion Stripper.
<br>A great print start with a great screen!

Works great! Very smooth coating, dries quickly and evenly, exposes and rinses awesomely (even when under-exposed, I don't get the heavy film like other emulsions), and clean-up is enjoyable too!
<br>All around great emulsion, I have switched over completely!
Not my cup of tea

Not sure if I did it wrong, but this stuff didn't work for me. When washing out the screen, I lost all detail in the design. I tried multiple exposure times, but nothing worked. I should have just stuck with the other emulsion I was more familiar with.
So far, not very good
by James Madill -
10 screens I've tried, no one has come out yet. Not very happy with this so far
Not for homebrew guys!

This is not the stuff for a hobbyist! If you expose with overhead lighting (halogen...) consider another product. I get great exposure, but the side of the screen not exposed to light doesn't harden enough... it washes out a bit and the unhardened emulsion runs when mixed with the water and fills in exposed/washed out mesh ruining the screen. I have to redo 1 out of every 3 screens because of this problem. Ain't nobody got time for this! I called customer service 2x and got some tips but really am very unhappy with this product. Going back to Hi-Fi. Pink rules!
Details and half tones no problem with Cryocoat.

Not sure why there are a couple bad reviews here. I've purchased cryocoat several times now and it has performed very well for me. If you are using a different emulsion than you are used to and you are losing details simply tape one of those 21 step exposure guides to your screen when exposing and dial it in. Everyone's set up is different but 110 white mesh screens have been exposing about 2:25 for me. My graphic designer constantly challenges me with microscopic lines and details (as well as half tones) that I think are ridiculously thin sometimes and I've been producing them very well with Cryocoat. I just logged on to buy more and thought I would add my .02
