Default Looking for a better emulsion

I have been using WBP Dual Cure Water Based Plastisol Hybrid Emulsion for some time. It has very good characteristic however the shelf life once mixed is very short due to being diazo based. It maybe several weeks before I do another product run. I cannot justify the extra expense of emulsion to the product price due to ordering a pint for every run. I have looked at other emulsions (pre-sensitized) to capillary films. Looking for a solution with a longer shelf life.

I do not have long runs - usually less than 50 at a time

I use Plastisol Inks for transfers and water-based inks occasionally.
