Directions to Apply Printers Choice Emulsion Hardener for Water-Based and Discharge Inks:

  1. Expose and Wash Out: Begin by exposing your coated screen to the desired image using your preferred emulsion. After exposure, thoroughly wash out the image area to create the stencil on the screen.
  2. Prepare the Screen: Ensure the screen is completely dry and free from any excess moisture before applying Printers Choice Emulsion Hardener.
  3. Shake Well: Before using Printers Choice Emulsion Hardener, give the bottle a good shake to ensure the contents are thoroughly mixed and ready for application.
  4. Application: Using a clean, lint-free cloth, soft brush, or a sponge, apply Printers Choice Emulsion Hardener to both sides of the dry screen. Be sure to cover the entire surface of the screen with a thin and even layer of the hardener. The pink color of the hardener provides high contrast for easy visibility during application.
  5. Dwell Time: For optimal results, allow Printers Choice Emulsion Hardener to dwell on the screen until it has completely evaporated. The dwell time will vary depending on environmental conditions, but typically, it takes a few minutes for the hardener to dry and strengthen the emulsion.
  6. Final Touches: After the dwell time, check to ensure that the hardener has fully evaporated and the screen is dry. If needed, gently touch the surface to confirm its readiness. Avoid over-application to prevent excessive buildup.
  7. Proceed with Printing: Once the hardener has evaporated and the screen is dry, your emulsion is fortified and ready to take on the challenges of water-based and discharge inks. Proceed with your printing process as usual, enjoying the benefits of enhanced water resistance and improved print durability.

Caution: Always work in a well-ventilated area while applying Printers Choice Emulsion Hardener. Avoid direct contact with the skin and eyes, and do not inhale any fumes that may be released during application. Follow the recommended application guidelines for the best results.

By following these simple steps, you can strengthen your coated screens with Printers Choice Emulsion Hardener, allowing them to endure the demands of water-based and discharge inks.
