    Default Screen Building / Mesh adhesive.

    Hey all,

    A while back I ordered a pot of emulsion which came in a box with old mesh instead of bubble wrap for protection. It was a fair size so me and father decided to try and make a screen or two out of it. We've made the wooden frames fine, and attached the mesh with two part contact adhesive and staples. That's worked fine, which led us on to the next idea.




    I've got a aluminium screen which is half fucked. I can't get the dried emulsion out of it whatever I try so I'm thinking it'd be a shame to waste the frame and we could try and re-mesh it. The only problem is... the two part we've been using has to be used on porous materials. Any suggestion on what we should replace it with?

    When we have aluminum screens re-stretched they grind off the old glue leaving the frame all rough allowing the glue to do it's job.

    Ok, so we might have to think of a way of roughing it up a little. That's going to take some thinking.

    I'm pretty sure that's what they use
