Many printers exclusively use plastisol ink. Check out Baselayr Plastisol emulsion. The high performance emulsion will streamline production by exposing faster, rinsing out quicker, and reclaiming with less effort.
Degreasing the screen is an important part of the screen prep process. Without proper degreasing, screens can develop pinholes, fisheyes, and other issues that will cause trouble when it’s time to coat a screen. One way to combat these issues is to use emulsion prep. So what’s the difference between a degreaser and emulsion prep? Why would screen printers use it? And what’s the best way to use it?
Not all emulsions respond the same when coating screens: some emulsions require adjustments in pressure and speed, depending on the emulsion thickness and the type of mesh on the screen. The end result should give a nice glisten that makes a great stencil for the next screen printing job. Here are everything screen printers need to know about how to coat a screen.
Having a stencil break down during a print job is every screen printer’s worst nightmare. The good news is that there’s an easy way to combat stencil breakdown. Using an emulsion hardener keeps screens at peak performance.

One of those options is Baselayr Long Lasting Emulsion. To learn more about why a screen printer would use this emulsion, the inks it can handle, coating tips, and dialing in exposure times, continue reading.
