The first responsibility of every screen maker is to harden the stencil so it stays in the mesh and doesn't dissolve and rinse down the drain.

Stencils are easy. If it stays in the mesh it was crosslinked. If it dissolves, it didn't get enough invisible UV-A exposure to cross link the stencil and hold it in the mesh.

Measure stencil hardness with a Stouffer 21 Step Sensitivity guide and aim for a solid step #7.
