Screen Printing Process - How To Apply Emulsion Products In The Screen Printing Process

  1. 1. Application Tip: CoatingScreens with Emulsion By Regional Supply
  2. 2. Items youll need include:• Stretched screen• Degreaser• Spray bottle• Liquid emulsion• Scoop coater with cap ends.
  3. 3. Step One: DegreaseIf you are working with a used screen that is still coated with emulsion, remove it with an emulsion remover.Before applying emulsion you need to clean the mesh with a degreaser. Work up a lather on both sides of the mesh, spray off with a hose, in a sink, or using a power washer, and let dry thoroughly.
  4. 4. Step Two: CoatWhen your screen is clean and dry, fill scoop coater with room temperature liquid emulsion.Slowly apply the first coat to the print side. Coat the squeegee side with one to three coats, depending on the thickness required, ensuring that the screen thoroughly dry between coats.If you need a thicker coat, scrape off the excess emulsion with the dull side of the scoop coater; for a thinner coat use the sharper side of the scoop.
  5. 5. Step Three: DryAfter you have applied the emulsion, let your screen dry horizontally with the print side down.Multiple coats may be needed as well so make sure the emulsion is fully dry before you add any extra coats.Always dry in a dark room or cabinet with temperatures never exceeding 110 degrees.
  6. 6. With these three simple steps, you should be able to easily and correctly coat your screen with emulsion before your screen printing process.If you have any questions about which emulsion you should use for your project, check with the Regional Supply Sales Team.
