Silk Screen Printing Emulsion Remover Instructions

When working in screen printing, your screens are an important piece of your equipment. The wood screens of today are strong and durable, but they still warp. You want the screen to be clean ,but do not spend to much time making them beautiful. Keep your equipment in usable condition. The polyester mesh can have a stain as long as the stain does not interfere with the next exposure.

Applying Emulsion Remover for screen printing

After removing all traces of ink, using ink wash or ink degradent.
1) Emulsion remover is applied with a chemical resistant spray bottle on one side.
2) Using a brillow pad type of brush, you scrub the emulsion and the frame
3) The emulsion should start to liquefy
4) Repeat on opposite side of screen

Using the Power Washer to remove the emulsion from the screen
1) Turn on the power washer
2) Point the wand next to the screen
3) Pull the trigger the wand
4) swing the wand to the bottom of the screen
5) Work your way up the screen by spraying from one side to the other
6) Spin screen and repeat on the opposite side
7) Rinse screen (mesh frame and all) thoroughly
8) Once this screen is dry, it is ready to coat.

Note: Some screen printers find it necessary to degrease the screen after removing the emulsion, but it is an optional process. Most emulsion removers will degrease the mesh.
