Degreasers

Screen Degreasing is a crucial and important step that is overlooked by many screen printers. Degreasing the screen is the process of washing and "prepping" the mesh before applying your emulsion or capillary film. It is crucial when using capillary films and in some cases requires a more aggressive degreaser to provide the best surface for film application.

All new mesh and screens should be degreased before use. Degreasing is simple. Wet the screen and then apply a liberal amount of degreaser to both sides (our degreaser can be put into a small spray bottle for easy application) of your screen. Using a dedicated scrub brush (do not use for anything other than degreasing) gently brush both sides of the screen, alternating in directions. Then rinse the screen with a steady stream of water from top to bottom, ensuring you remove all traces of degreaser from the screen. Then, carefully grab your screen by the edges and store in a dust-free environment. Allow to dry overnight, or if you have a heated screen drying rack, dry for the recommended time in your unit.

Degreasing the screen removes all the dirt, dust, and oil residue from the manufacturing process, as well as the shipping process and all the times they are handled in your shop. If you have a small shop, dust particles from the t-shirts can end up on the mesh, which can cause pinholes on the screen.
