Anyone that prints with water-based inks knows about hardeners for emulsion to improve water resistance. There are reclaimable and non-reclaimable kinds. What I'm wondering about are the non-reclaimable kinds. I print my own clothing line, and if I could have permanent screens for each of my prints, that would save me countless time and money. What I am concerned about, however, is the possibility that when I pressure wash the ink out of the screens, or use discharge inks, or any water-based inks really, that the design could break down, leaving me with a stencil that I can't reclaim that is useless. I know it will break down eventually. If it could go through the process of printing 100 shirts, having the ink pressure washed off and being re-taped say... 20 times, then it would be worth doing. If it only goes through a couple runs, then it would be very costly and impractical. Has anyone ever had any experience using these hardeners?
