The preparation of the stretched screens before stencil making is one of the most underestimated processes in the workflow of a screen printer. But: the very limited effort to prepare a screen properly before coating it with screen emulsions or applying capillary films has an immediate return: when using one of our degreasing or mesh preparation chemicals you’ll be on the safe side.
Degreaser concentrate 1 : 10. For manual application. Removes quickly and efficiently dirt, dust and greasy residues on all mesh types and thus ensures and excellent adhesion of the stencil materials to be applied further in the process. Biodegradable. Colour: blue.
VARIOPREP 3031 FOTECHEM 30031
Degreaser concentrate 1 : 30/50. The product is biodegradable and has only a very slight foaming effect. It is thus suitable for automatic screen treating equipment. Its colour is slightly reddish.
Mesh-preparation concentrate, miscible 1 : 5 with water. Perfect for the preparation of screens where a capillary film is applied as stencil material. The product is biodegradable and has only a very slight foaming effect. It is thus suitable for automatic screen treating equipment. Colour: ochre.
A water-soluble degreasing concentrate, formulated for manual application and use in automatic reclaiming machines for surface wetting, especially for stainless steel and nickel mesh.
A special degreaser concentrate, supplied in a slightly gel-type state. As such it allows the user to produce a liquid mesh degreaser in a very economical and easy-to-be-applied way. Mixing ratio 10 : 1.
FOTECHEM 2003 is a slightly alkaline ready-to-use degreasing solution, which removes dirt, dust and grease residues from the surface of the fabrics. Suitable for all types of mesh, either new or used.
Non-hazardous flow-enhancer, combined with a degreasing solution for direct emulsion coating. FOTECHEM 2002 is a ready-to-use gel to be applied by brush or coating trough.
FOTECHEM 2023 is a slightly alkaline abrasive/degreaser gel. It provides a better wetting of the mesh surface and improves adhesion of all types of stencils, especially on new mesh. A second degreasing step with this product is not necessary.
FOTECHEM 2025 is a ready-to-use gel of brownish colour. It helps to form a water film on the degreased mesh to allow a smooth and uniform application of all FOTECAP capillary films. The use of FOTECHEM 2025 avoids pinholes after the transfer of the capillary film. FOTECHEM 2025 is an absolute „must use product“, when working with capillary films.
