    Default A few questions...

    So we just bought some new screens. 230s since we had been using 305s and were having too many problems, and we were told that it was too high of a mesh, etc.
    So we coated these new screens that same way we had been and exposed for the same amount of time as usual.... and we lost a good amount of the artwork during the rinsing phase - things just completely blew out... could it be that we should have abraded these new screens?? I just did some searching on here and read that on a few threads about this and was never aware of this.
    Also, can anyone suggest a good degreaser?? I hear a lot of people use Simple Green??? Does this work well?? Where can you buy this?? Any other suggestions?? We are using Ulano TZ with Speedball Permanent Poster Inks.
    Thanks in advance!!

    Exposure time for a 230 is longer than for a 305. You underexposed.

    well after it happened for the first two times we exposed it significantly longer (2 minutes more) thinking that would fix the problem... and still the same thing. (all 3 times on a brand new screen each time)

    I don't know what you're using as an exposure unit so I'm not sure that 2 minutes is a significant amount.

    What is your exposure time for a 305?

    what was your exposure time with the 305s? it could be that an extra 2 minutes isn't going to do a thing when you really need to bump it up another 10 minutes.

    So I dont know all the correct terms but basically we are using a vaccum bed with a mercury 1200 bulb (i think) Im not so much the "tech" at the studio.
    BUT - for the 305s we were exposing for 5 min 30 sec.
    I didnt realize that there was such a difference in the two mesh counts with exposing.
