Re: White ink going through shirt onto platen. How to fix?

You are using the type where you mix Diazo into it to activate it? Yeah, the clock starts ticking on that stuff once it is mixed.

The other type of emulsion is Polymer. It exposes faster, there is...

And by flashing once you achieve a light even coat, there is a barrier so the next hit can't get blasted all the way through the garment.

Re: White ink going through shirt onto platen. How to fix?

Nope, the Comet White is the only GG available as an opaque ink, so have to do the traditional underbase route with them.

Re: White ink going through shirt onto platen. How to fix?

The stickiness on the GG may in part be to it still being hot/warm. This seemed to be the case when I was using it with a single station press, so I had to blow air over it to cool it after flashing....

Re: White ink going through shirt onto platen. How to fix?

I use CCI EnviroSolv. There may be better stuff, but it's what I started with and seems to work okay. I use it with a large cellulose sponge.

Don't worry too much about staining/buildup on the...

Re: White ink going through shirt onto platen. How to fix?

GG has its positives: Less likely to dry in screen. Relatively inexpensive. It practically cleans the screen, so ink buildup isn't an issue. Downsides: I don't like how it gets sticky/tacky when...

Re: White ink going through shirt onto platen. How to fix?

You should probably be running off contact with opaque inks, like whites. You are lifting the screen when flooding, right?

Sounds like your GG is in pretty bad shape. Like I said, I'm not sure...

Re: White ink going through shirt onto platen. How to fix?

I've printed with that very ink and that mesh count. GG white should be the consistency of that marshmallow fluff stuff you buy in a jar (it is sort of weirdly spongy as compared to other inks).
