MS Hardener is a one part hardener that is applied to both sides of the screen after it is exposed, developed, blocked out, and dried. It improves stencil water resistance for water base and discharge printing yet still allows for the stencil to be reclaimed. After applying to both sides of the screen place in the sun or hot box for optimum results. Screen remains reclaimable when all process techniques are followed.
Hardeners A&B provide ultimate water resistance for waterbase and discharge ink systems. Mixed 1:1 and applied to the stencil after exposure, development, and drying. If emulsion is used as a block out it should be exposed prior to applying Hardeners A&B. After application the emulsion is semi permanent and may be hard to reclaim, especially on finer meshes. Designed for use in long run water base and discharge ink printing where ultimate screen durability is needed. Reclaiming is possible if HR-700 is used prior to applying emulsion remover.
