Problem with emulsion

Postby id-wear » Sat Oct 30, 2010 1:12 pm

Hi! Im new in screenprinting, i print cotton t-shirts. I have a problem with emulsion- after exposing the screen, emulsion doesnt stay fixed in some parts. Im using always same product and do everything according instructions. Sometimes its successful but some other times, more often now the emulsion keeps coming out after exposure. What can cause this?

Many things can cause what you are experiencing them, among them are underexposure, age of emulsion, cleanliness of screens.

Sometimes the emulsion batches are bad. We've used the same emulsion for two years now and just recently it started breaking down during production.
