Build your home insolator for less than € 50

by Ronny Garcia on October 18, 2021

Today I'm going to tell you how to build your own insolating homemade for less than € 50. And when I say homemade I do not mean seedy, with this insolator you can do very precise workIn the workshop we have even made photographs to stamp 1 ink with acramines on white t-shirts.

In our online store we have insolating Ryonet professional in case you are interested. Watch professional insolator.

We will only need 3 things. Yes, 3 things. And none of those 3 things are nails or hammers, you don't have to be a Macgyver to assemble this insolator, really. We are going to do things simple, but well done, you can do it in your room without complications.

1- We will need a 0.4 cm thick glass and the size that you prefer. I advise that it be one somewhat larger than the size of silkscreen screens that you usually use. If you usually use 40x50 screens then I recommend using a 50x60cm glass. The glass will serve as the base where we will put the screen. You can buy it in specialized glassware stores, where they make windows.
Average price: € 20-30

2 two wooden easels. Average price: € 4 per unit at Leroy Merlin.

3- Focus of halogen light 500 watts, it can also be a 400w. You can find some in hardware stores for less than € 15, if you prefer you can click on the following Amazon product to see more details:


And that's it, nothing more is needed. With these materials you will be able to assemble your homemade insolator.

The easels serve to support the glass, like a table. On the ground we put the halogen bulb, there will be approximately 50cm between the light bulb and the glass.

Voila! You already have your insolator mounted, without boxes or weird experiments.
With this system you can insolate your emulsified screens with Aquasol Murakami Emulsion in a time of 8 minutes.

To create the air vacuum that professional insolators make, we will help ourselves with a weight, a book or heavy wood, which will put pressure on the screen, this will make the photolith that is between the glass and the screen printing more attached to the glass. and do not cast shadows.

In the next photo you can see point by point. The white horizontal line represents the photolith. The screen goes on top of the photolith, with the inside facing up and the front part in contact with the photolith and the glass.
