I was about to start printing and I went to spray down my adhesive on the table. Unfortunately, I didn't notice that the spray tip was somewhat clogged up and when I went to spray some of the mist went up into my screen. I tried to wash it out right away with soap and water and then tried some degreaser, but no luck. I tried printing it anyway, but of course the print was blotchy where the ink wasn't able to pass through the screen. So, the question, is there a way to clean the screen and get the adhesive out or am i shit outta luck and have to reclaim the screen.
I know I'm a first time poster, but any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been lurking on the forums for a while without registering, but its times like these that I know I should've gotten on here sooner.
oh, and depending on your emulsion, the thinner may lock the emulsion in when you go to reclaim. TZ was notorious for that, i think some water resistant only emulsions react badly when you put thinners on them.
Thanks GP, I appreciate the help. I think I'm just going to have to reclaim it and start over. I don't got any thinner on hand so reclaiming seems to be the only option... Would something like nail polish remover work?
Anyhow, thanks again folks.
I ended up using some screen opener. Worked just fine, but during washing the screen the emulsion on some text began to give way.
I'm not sure if it was the screen opener or maybe i scrubbed too hard. Anyhow, i'll be reclaiming the screen, but thanks GP.
