Squeegees- At Discount Screen Supplies We offer all Polyurethane squeegees, they are the most common type used in the screen print industry today, while slightly more expensive, they offer better chemical and abrasion resistance than other materials on the market. screen printer can purchase a squeegee with many different profiles. The profile of the Squeegee determines the thickness of the ink deposit laid down, and the effectiveness of the Squeegee on different substrates. Available edge profiles include a square edge, a square edge with rounded corners, a round edge, a double-sided beveled edge, and a single beveled edge. Proper Squeegee maintenance is vital to producing quality printed images. For example, when printing with aggressive inks, each side of the blade shouldn't be used for more than 4 hours. Implementing a rotation schedule with the blades will dramatically increase the overall life of a Squeegee. By using the Squeegee for 4 hours at a time, and then replacing with a new one, the blade will last much longer.
Emulsion-Emulsion for your screen printing needs is also offered here at DSS. We are currently offering emulsion for graphic and textile. When separating color layers, you spread a thin layer of photosensitive emulsion on the screen and let it dry. You then need to expose the screen to light. The light causes the emulsion to harden and bind to the fabric. Where the light strikes the screen, the emulsion will bind, making a solid layer. Where the light is blocked, the emulsion remains water-soluble. After exposing the screen, you spray down the screen with water thoroughly, washing off the emulsion only where your image was placed; this clear area is where ink will be pressed through the screen when you print.
