  • Degrease – Using a mesh degreaser, work up a lather on both sides of mesh. Flood screen and frame thoroughly with water, then dry.
  • Coat – Slowly apply first coat to print side. Then coat squeegee side with one coat. If a thicker stencil is desired, additional coats may be applied to the squeegee side while the emulsion is wet. Note that one coat on each side with Chromablue is similar to four coats wet on wet with typical diazo based emulsions. Dry thoroughly between coats.
