Kiwo ( says it now offers an economical, three-component screenmaking system that saves time and money and maximizes performance and workflow. Kiwocol 300 WR is a high-solids emulsion that’s formulated for water resistance, quick buildup, and support for high-resolution printing. Blockout WR is a water-resistant blockout used to touch up pinholes and block out screens. According to Kiwo, using Blockout WR helps to get screens into production faster by eliminating the need to use emulsion for touching up screens—a process that requires an additional round of exposure. Hardener WR is a stencil-hardening fluid that’s designed to enhance a stencil’s water resistance. Kiwo says stencils made with Hardener WR remain completely reclaimable.
