i went to reclaim a couple of my screens yesterday the same way i have for the last 5 months and all of a sudden i am having a problem -- the emulsion is hardly coming out (if at all) and a green stain is being left behind on the fabric. here is what i am using and doing and possible problems:
305 count yellow died mesh
nazdar emulsion and reclaimer
1. just recently i've had the problem of when i go to print the emulsion on the screen sticks to the paper after it has been burned and dryed. the solution i found was to put it in the sun for a while (i.e. burn it some more)
2. my emulsion is probably over 3 months old, but has been refrig. the whole time.
so, i know if you underburn a screen the reclaimer will lock in the emulsion. but can you over burn a screen? maybe putting them in the sun is making it harder to reclaim?
also: whats the best process for using the reclaimer liquid. i've just been mixing it 50/50 with water in a spray bottle. then i spray the screen and scrub it with a nylon brush. as i said, this has worked wonderfully. but how do others use the stuff?
