Dehaze, Degrease, De-Ghost with Sgreen® Stuff

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. Jonathan Overmyer of Golden Press Studio walks through his process and demonstrates how you can make an old, dirty screen squeaky-clean.

HOW DO YOU USE IT

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.

Once it has settled, rinse it off and set up the screen to dry. When it's dry, the screen is ready for the next run. It's that simple!

THE NEW FORMULA

Some of you may have noticed that the new formula in the Sgreen® Stuff is a little different. The new formula is more like a gel where the old formula was gritty. Omitting the grit from the chemical is better for the screens because the grit put more stress on the thread, which isn't ideal. The new formula works just as great, if not better, than the old formula.
