KIWO Mesh X-Cel
Ready-to-use liquid for degreasing, preparation, giving improved wetting and antistatic supportof screen printing meshes.

KIWO MESH X-CEL is a highly efficient screen mesh preparation which improves the coating propertiesof direct emulsions and the water transference of indirect and direct stencil making films (e.g. KIWOFILMrange) decisively.
