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.
RhinoSol 600 is just one example of an emulsion remover that is a dual cure photo emulsion intended for use with most 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!
