How-To Screen Print: Degreasing Screens

The process of degreasing your screen with Franmar Degreaser to remove all the grease, dirt, dust and oils before putting on your emulsion is crucial. This step is important and one that some beginner screen printers don’t do. If this is a step that your normally skip, then your emulsion will not adhere to the screen causing pinholes to your design. If there is any grease, or oil on your screen your emulsion will just fall off of the screen, leaving you with a poor image resolution. It’s also just as important to have a dedicated scrub pad just used for degreasing. When you properly clean and rinse your screen then you will have complete adhesion, a great image quality, and a stencil that will last during your production hours.

Here’s our YouTube video showing how to properly degrease and rinse a screen.
