Do not get Haze Remover Gel on the glued portion of the screen as it will remove glues and adhesives.
1. On a dry or slightly damp screen, spray or pour a minimal amount onto screen.
2. Scrub screen with a dedicated Biggee pad, or nylon brush.
3. Repeat on back of screen image. For tough to clean haze images, let sit for up to 2 minutes before cleaning.
4. Clean both sides of screen with a shop towel or pressured water.
Note: For best results, be sure to dehaze screens every time after reclaiming. Use a separate degreasing step after dehazing when working with high mesh counts (380 or more), halftones, and costly films.
Usage Tips from the Pros:
- Use each time immediately after emulsion or stencil removal so ghost/haze will not set in the screen.
- Great for removal of small areas of locked in emulsion.
- Use Franmar’s Screen Degreaser to remove any residue.
- An hour or longer may be necessary for older haze/ghost images, but Haze Remover Gel will not weaken or damage mesh.
