Screen Chemicals


FRAME ADHESIVE FAST

A two-component screen adhesive for a highly chemical resistant bonding of screen meshes to frames made from aluminium, steel, wood and galvanized iron frames. It can easily be applied by brush. Frame Adhesive Fast is fast drying and after curing resistant to almost all screen printing inks and most cleaning agents. The adhesive film does not embrittle and does not cut the mesh if some of the adhesive has been brushed into the screen surface.

 

FRAME ADHESIVE FAST CATALYST

Frame Adhesive Fast Catalyst is a green coloured hardener for Frame Adhesive Fast.

 

FRAME ADHESIVE REDUCER

Solvent based cleaning agent for adhesives. Frame Adhesive Reducer is a quickly evaporating solvent mixture to remove adhesive residues on caoutchouc, synthetic resin- and dispersion bases. Already cured two-components-adhesives normally are not dissolved anymore.

 

DEGREASING GEL No. 23

An abrasive degreaser gel that promotes better wetting of the fabric and adhesion of the stencil, and thus, longer press life. Its degreasing action removes dirt, dust, and oils from the fabric, reducing the risk of stencil failure and pinholing. Ulanogel 23 is ready-to-use and rinses off in hot or cold water. Its thixotropic character permits easy and effective preparation of larger screens held in a vertical position. Non-caustic - will not harm frames, fabric, or adhesives on stretch and glue frames. Recommended for use with all stencil systems on synthetic fabric only.

 

ALL MESH PREP No. 25

A ready-to-use liquid that promotes fabric water retention and, thus, the uniform adhesion of all capillary films. All Mesh Prep No. 25 is especially helpful for use with thin CDF® Direct Films applied to fine fabric, which inherently holds little water. All Mesh Prep No. 25 rinses easily from the screen with hot or cold water. Non-caustic - will not harm frames, fabric, or adhesives on stretch and glue frames.

 

SCREEN DEGREASER CONCENTRATE (1:10) No. 33

Degreaser concentrate solution that remove dirt, dust and oils from all fabrics, new and used.

 

MAGIC MESH PREP

Magic Mesh Prep is a ready-to-use liquid combining the properties of fabric degreaser, wetting agent, and antistatic treatment. It improves the flow characteristics of liquids, facilitating more uniform coating of direct emulsions and the easier transfer of ink during printing, thereby improving printed image quality. The improved wetting of fabric also promotes the adhesion of indirect and capillary films and improves the durability of all stencil systems, for longer printing runs. The antistatic properties of Magic Mesh Prep reduce the whiskering and feathering of ink when printing under low humidity conditions.

 

EXTRA HEAVY BLOCKOUT No. 10

A heavy, water-soluble blockout with fast drying characteristics. The high viscosity affords easier handling and generally assures effective coverage in a single coating. Especially useful with coarse mesh. Can be used for touchups when thinned with cold water. Can be used in unventilated rooms since it contains no organic solvents. Recommended for use on all fabrics, with all stencil systems. Use only with non-aqueous inks.

 

SCREEN FILLER No. 60

A water-soluble block-out for use with fine to medium mesh counts. Can be used full strength for touch-ups or thinned with water if desired. Can be used in unventilated rooms since it cntains no organic solvents. Recommended for use on all abrics, with all stencil systems. Use only with non-aqueous inks.

 

HARDENER D

Hardener D is a very effective liquid stencil hardener formulated to crosslink both PVOH and PVAC. It improves durability and water resistance of direct emulsions. Hardener D will make stencil removal more difficult and may embrittle the stencil.

 

PRESS WASH

Solvent-based ink wash for manual usage “on-press-cleaning”. Press Wash is a solvent blend that can be used to remove most screen process ink from screens, squeegees, printing tables etc. It has a mild odour, does not contain halogenated hydrocarbons, and will not affect most capillary films and direct emulsions.

 

CLEANMATIC MF 12-2

A non hazardous water dilutable ink wash for solvent based inks, UV inks, plastisols and water-based inks for manual use or use in automatic cleaning units. Cleanmatic MF-12-2 can be diluted up to 4 times with water when used for the removal of plastisol or UV inks. Mixed with Stripmatic CF, a non hazardous stencil remover concentrate for manual use or use in automatic cleaning units, it removes ink and emulsion in one step.

 

SV 8

An universally applicable screen cleaner for the removal of commonly use non-hardened inks from the screen mesh. Especially for the use in in-line cleaning units. SV 8 is biodegradable, very mild in odour, has a high flash point and can be used for a very long time in the cleaning bath. Among others SV 8 is especially suitable for cleaning UV and solvent based inks, as well as plastisols.

 

SV 61

A solvent-based washup solution formulated for use in automated screen cleaning equipment. It is effective in removing paper, UV, glass, plastisol, solvent based and ceramic inks. SV 61 can be used under vacuum and is also suitable for manual usage.

 

STENCIL REMOVER PASTE No. 5

A ready-to-use paste for fast and thorough removal of direct emulsions and capillary films from all types of fabric including metalized polyester. Will not etch fabric; contains no strong alkalis or hypochlorides. Odor free. Thick consistency affords somewhat easier handling for larger screens.

 

STENCIL REMOVER CONCENTRATE (1:50)

A concentrated liquid stencil remover for fast and thorough removal of direct emulsions and capillary films, from all types of fabric, including metalized polyester. Will not etch fabric; contains no strong alkalis or hypochlorides. Odor free.

 

STRIPMATIC CF 1:20

A concentrated liquid (max. 1:20) formulated for use in automated equipment to remove direct emulsion and capillary films from screen. Stripmatic CF is acidified and contains special stabilizers to prevent the formation of precipitants if it is diluted in “hard water.” It does not contain bleach, will not attack stainless steel, and has minimal effect on synthetic screen fabric. Stripmatic CF is odorless and colorless.

 

ACTIGHOST RAPID GEL

A viscous, alkaline screen cleaner utilizing biodegradable solvents. It is intended to be used after normal stencil decoating to remove any ink ghost images. It can also be used as an activator with oxidizing agents (such as Ulano Ghost Remover Advance) to remove emulsion residues. Actighost Rapid Gel is virtually odor free and has a high flash point. Its high viscosity facilitates its use on coarse mesh and its application to fabric using a coating trough or brush. In normal use, Actighost Rapid Gel is sufficiently diluted with water so that it can be flushed harmlessly down the drain and into biological sewage treatment facilities.

 

GHOST REMOVER ADVANCE

Ghost Remover Advance is formulated for the effective removal of ink haze, ghost images, and fabric stains - especially those caused by diazo sensitizers. There are no dwell time restrictions for Ghost Remover Advance on polyester fabric. On nylon or stainless steel fabric, however, the dwell time should not exceed 1 hour. Stainless steel that has been cleaned or treated with other screen chemicals may have been damaged, so that the dwell time of Ghost Remover Advance may need to be reduced. The viscosity of Ghost Remover Advance is helpful on coarse fabric, where it can continue to react during extended dwell times.

 

GHOST REMOVER PASTE

Alkaline cleaning paste for universal use in screen printing. Especially suitable in combination with an organic-solvent for the removal of ghost images, ink and photoemulsion residues. Ghost Remover Paste can also be used as roughening agent for new aluminum frames which have not been sandblasted.
