Emulsion News

Emulsion is a light sensitive liquid product that is coated onto a screen frame to create a stencil (required in order to create an image to print).  Emulsion hardens where light hits (exposes) it and then washes away where light doesn’t hit it leaving the desired image to be printed on the screen frame.

Emulsion Remover is required to “reclaim” a screen; so that the stencil (emulsion) can be removed from the screen making it able to be used again and again. There are emulsion removers on the market including biodegradable ones that are water soluble, non-toxic and work quickly on most emulsions. Some are concentrates that are mixed with water while others are ready-to-use.

Fresh, emulsion-free frames

RhinoSol 600 is just one example of an emulsion remover that is a dual cure photo emulsion intended for use with most textile printing using plastisol, water based and discharge inks. It uses a powder sensitizer that, when used in conjunction with this high solids emulsion, offers excellent durability during printing.  Make sure to have the emulsion completely dried for best results.

Wishing you the best of results!

Ghosts Be Gone with Environmentally-Sensitive Haze/Stain Remover from RhinoTech

The Newest How-To Video: Rid Screen Frames of Ghost Images for Good using a Soy-Based Haze Remover

Remove ghost images for good with routine use of HRG² 2400 Haze Remover that is an environmentally-responsible product and part of the RhinoClean Green² chemical line. Both graphic and textile screen printers’ use this specially formulated liquid product to remove imbedded U.V., conventional and plastisol inks that remain on the screen following emulsion removal. HRG² 2400 effectively lifts the haze and imbedded ink from the mesh then emulsifies and dissolves the ink resins, binders, pigments, plasticizers, etc. The solution suspends resins, so reattachment to the mesh surface is prohibited allowing for simple water-rinse removal. HRG² 2400 is also an excellent degreaser. And the best part is that it is biodegradable, conforming to standards and our industry’s need to be responsible stewards of our mother earth.

Responsibly-made Emulsion Removers for Textile Screen Printers and Graphic Image Printers

Within the realm of emulsion removers, we want to reintroduce two that are top sellers. They are biodegradable and, with the addition of a filtration system, you are doubly assured that any solids will be collected. As a result, the environmental impact to plumbing and septic systems continues to be protected.

Environmentally Safe Emulsion/Stencil Remover

Showcased today are: ERG² 8550L Emulsion Remover from RhinoTech that is a highly efficient ready-to-use product. This Emulsion Reclaiming Solution rapidly removes emulsion and capillary films from screens. It offers excellent freeze/thaw characteristics and is ideal for use in all climates. And it never separates out active ingredients. And, as mentioned earlier, environmental, economic, plumping system and septic field protections are assured when a filtration system is used in combination to collect solids that are 5 microns and larger. This can be accomplished by using a RhinoClean M10 Filtration System that has a woven filter media to collect the particles.

ERG² 8500L Emulsion Remover is also a highly efficient, ready-to-use product;  rapidly removing emulsion and capillary films from screens. The freeze/thaw characteristics are excellent so the product can be easily used in all climates. It never separates out active ingredients and can be used straight or mixed in a 1:15 ratio with water. The same protections are assured when a filtration system is used to collect solids that are 5 microns and larger.
