It’s that time of year again when the air has a nip to it, their car windows are frosty, and there may even be a sprinkling of snow outside their front door. This means that screen printers must ensure that their workrooms remain warm and that they are aware of both what they order and when they order it. Emulsion and emulsion removers both have the potential to freeze. The majority of emulsions are not freeze-thaw stable. When opening the container, people can observe a variety of different results depending on the chemistry of the emulsion.
The active components may crystallize and settle to the bottom of the container when it freezes. If the emulsion remover has crystallized, bring it to room temperature and shake it vigorously until the crystals dissolve back into the solution. Emulsion Removal concentrate has been developed to penetrate and dissolve emulsion and capillary film in all forms without weakening the mesh. To get the greatest results to mix 1 part concentrate with 19 parts water.
- Formula with a High Concentration
- Degreaser built-in.
- Any emulsion or Capillary Film Can Be Removed.
- It’s a fantastic way to reclaim silkscreens.
- Emulsion Remover is made from an 8oz bottle and yields 1 gallon.
Emulsion remover dissolves without the screen grid decomposition even the toughest emulsions, capillary films, and stencils. This concentration will save both time and money for their business.
Emulsions remover concentrate removes part, but not all of the emulsion. Is Emulsion Remover a bad product?
If the emulsion won’t come off in the thicker spots, use additional Emulsion Remover or scrub harder. There could be a few reasons why the emulsion isn’t coming off in random places on the screen. First, the Emulsion Remover could be past its 6- to 9-month shelf life. When Emulsion Remover reaches the end of its shelf life, it will develop light to rusty brown tint. Second, there could be an issue with the emulsion under-curing or over-curing. Make sure the emulsion is properly exposed by performing a test. Third, some cleaning solutions that are heated can start to lock in the emulsion.
