Heavy ghosting, Streaks and Blobs of photo emultion

Postby JayKey » Sat Dec 13, 2014 6:12 am


I am having a problem with heavy ghost images on my screens when reclaiming.

I am using the following

KFL 1.20 stencil strip
Pregan paste.
Preasure washer.

How ever I am still getting very strong ghost images where i can still see the stencil design.

I am aslo getting problems with what look like grey streaks


Small blobs (bubbles) of photo emultion that will not shift.

Can you provide some advice please

Thank you again Jay

If you're using a pressure washer with an emulsion remover and a haze remover but it is not working then I might try switching chemicals. I save a lot of people time and agony suggesting the Saati chemicals, if you're on a city water system, and the RhinoTech products, if you're on a septic system.


Or maybe this could help too:
