    Default Lower mesh count require less burn time?

    Does anyone know if a lower mesh count screen requires less of a burn time? We have always used 230 mesh count and switched to 156 for some fabric printing - using the same emulsion as always and same burn time our emulsion is locking up after burning and just not washing out. Has happened twice now. Doesn't make sense, we never ever ever have this problem, the only difference seems to be the mesh count. Help!

    yeah if you went from yellow or orange mesh to white with the 156 then that would be the issue. otherwise normally it should be a longer burn time.

    Mesh color is different. 230 screens are yellow - 156 are white.

    yeah, usually the lower the mesh count= thicker emulsion= longer burn time. but white mesh means about half the time burning as yellow. in my experience white mesh does not hold as fine of detail in yellow.

    My experience with white has been 2/3 yellow, not quite half. buy a stouffer 21 step transmission test.

    Hey guys - thanks for all the advice and thoughts. I forgot to post back but we did a step test and found that the white mesh required about a 25% less burn time than the higher mesh count yellow mesh screens. Burning and printing went great from there!
