HERE IS THE STRAIGHT-FORWARD RECIPE FOR SUCCESSFUL SCREEN PREP OF A NEWLY STRETCHED TEXTILE SCREEN PRINTING FRAME.
To begin this simple, quick and easy process:
1) place the screen in the RhinoTech Washout Booth so that you have an accessible work space complete with water. This self-contained unit will allow you to apply the screen prep and then rinse it off easily with no mess.
2) apply RhinoTech SPG 2255 to the entire screen using a circular motion. Scrub it in thoroughly on both sides. Not only will it degrease the screen, it will abrade it ever so lightly so that when applying capillary films, the result will be a superior bond mesh.
3) rinse the screen on both sides. If you are using capillary film, it is ready to be applied.
4) if you are using emulsion, first place screen in the RhinoTech Screen Drying Rack until the screen dries thoroughly before coating.
Your cleaned screen will now serve you through many, many screen printing jobs! View a demo of "How to Prep a Screen" here and on YouTube.com :
