Step 2: Shake the Can Before using the Screen Opener Spray, shake the can vigorously to ensure that the contents are thoroughly mixed and ready for application.

Step 5: Wait and Reapply if Needed Allow the Screen Opener to work for a few seconds, depending on the severity of the clog. In some cases, you may need to repeat the application to ensure the blockage is adequately dissolved. Avoid using excessive force when spraying, as it may damage the screen.

Step 6: Test the Screen After applying the Screen Opener, test the screen by running a few test prints. The spray should have effectively dissolved the ink, allowing for smooth and consistent ink flow through the mesh.

Step 7: Clean the Screen After resolving the clog, clean the screen thoroughly to remove any residual Screen Opener and dissolved ink. Use a suitable screen wash or cleaning solvent to ensure the screen is ready for the next printing job.
