    What you printing with? Plastisol/oil based or water based? For tshirts we use kiwo at the shop. It's like $40.00 for a gallon. Works fine for what we do. We get it from graphic solutions, you might have a supplier in Dallas, and they should do walk in sales too.

    Are there different emulsions for water based as opposed to plastisol inks? We bought some emulsion from the guy we got the press from, (I cannot tell you what brand since it is at the shop) and when we were rinsing the screen (done for the day) - the emulsion just started pulling right off?? Could it be that it wasn't burned long enough? Was it the water-based ink and the emulsion? Was it bad emulsion?? Should we not use hot water??
    Any ideas??

    there are different emulsions for solvent and waterbase, there are also emulsions that work on both.
    there are cheap emulsions that don't hold detail, and more expensive ones that have more solids and are better at detail.
    there are diazo based emulsions (cheaper) and one pot photopolymer/SBQ types that you don't mix the diazo in that are more expensive, but expose way faster and with more detail.
    there are 'dual cure' that are part diazo and part one pot, they have the advantages of both systems

    with your emulsion coming off, I would say you either didn't degrease properly, or you didn't expose completely.
    Or maybe it was rated for solvent based inks, and the waterbase ink helped disolve it.

    hard to say from here.
