I need suggestions please

Postby Meatsack » Sun Nov 12, 2017 1:29 pm

I have a ghosting problem with black waterbase in. I have a haze remover from framar and it basically does nothing. I tried bleaching the screen and it helped a little. What should I try next? I read some of the other topics and I guess besides trying lacquer thinner which some say is a no no what do I do now? Is the haze remover I have not strong enough? I let it sit for 10 mins but litteraly did nothing. Do you recommend 1 of your haze removers instead? Something that can eat the souls of children or something stronger lol. Thanks

Also I did try lacquer thinner and that did nothing. Scrubbed it with a tooth brush for 10 mins and nothing. I was surprised. Am I out of luck?

Yes, a better haze remover may work. But if this is actual dried ink in the mesh that could be a problem. I would try Saati HR5. It's very aggressive but it should only damn the souls of children and perhaps some women. So they have a chance for redemption.

It's not actually dried in the mesh holes themselves. I can still print through it. It's just the treads there are really black and dyed and it's really annoying.

Okay so unless the mesh is completely hazy and gray, then the HR5 should do the trick.
