Instructions for cleaning screens using our dip tank products:
Fill dip tank with water and then add the concentrated Kor-Chem dip tank product. It will need to be diluted with water at the recommended ratio. Actual dip tank solution concentration may vary based on several factors. The mesh count of the screen, the types of ink and emulsion used, and the amount of ink left on the screen are all factors in solution concentration.
Once printing is complete, scrape excess ink from the print side of the screen. Place screens in dip tank with solution for approximately 1 to 3 minutes to soften the emulsion. Next, pull the screen out of the dip tank. Allow excess solution to drain off the screen and back into the dip tank. Bring your screen to the washout booth. Apply a Kor-Chem Screen Wash, Stain Remover & Degreaser such as Bio-1. Use this on both sides of each screen and scrub. Apply a high-pressure rinse to both sides of the screen to remove excess ink and stains from the screen. Flood rinse the entire screen with low-pressure rinse to remove residual chemical. Finally dry your screens and then they are ready for reuse.
Kor-Chem dip tank solutions provide performance and value for your screen printing needs.
