Sgreen® Stuff, a two-for-one dehazer and degreaser chemical, removes ink haze, oils, and containments so the emulsion will better adhere to the screen. To get the most out of this chemical, you need to know how to use it. Here’s a guide.
WHAT IS SGREEN STUFF?
Sgreen® Stuff is an aggressive but friendly dual-action dehazer and degreaser designed to remove the toughest ink haze from leftover plastisol, water-based, and discharge inks. Sgreen® Stuff leaves your mesh free of all oils and contaminants and reduces the occurrence of pinholes to allow for better adhesion of your emulsion.
Sgreen® Stuff deep cleans mesh for superior screen clarity and cleans mesh stains with less noticeable odor while working more efficiently than most hazardous stain removers. With Sgreen® Stuff you save both time and money, by combining the last two steps of screen reclamation into one and reducing the number of chemicals you need in your reclamation process.
HOW TO USE SGREEN STUFF
After you've used the Sgreen® Emulsion Stripper on the screen, apply a thin line of Sgreen® Stuff on the top of the screen. In circle motions, scrub the chemical across the screen to activate it. Make sure to scrub both sides of the screen.
PRO TIP: Do not get the chemical on the glue that adheres the mesh to the frame. The chemical could eat up the glue over time and eventually pop the screen.
Let Sgreen® Stuff sit on the screen for two to five minutes. If the screen has a tough ghost image, leave the chemical longer. You could do 15 minutes, or leave it on there for a day. Sgreen® Stuff will not hurt the mesh.
Rinse with high-pressure water, spraying from bottom to top on the t-shirt side of the screen. Reverse the screen and rinse with high pressure, then use low-pressure water and flood-rinse the entire screen. Allow the screen to dry before coating.
Sgreen® Stuff combines the best of dehazing and degreasing allowing printers to skip a step in the reclaim process. Sgreen Stuff makes reclaiming screens easier, so printers can get back to what they love most: screen printing.
