An inert, abrasive powder that mechanically roughens
or abrades nylon and polyester.
Roughening increases the surface area of synthetic fabrics for
a better mechanical bond with indirect films and direct
emulsions; for better fabric water retention for the adhering of
CDF® direct-films; and for extended stencil life with any stencil
system. The particles in Microgrit No. 2 are fine enough
(18-20 microns) to pass through even the smallest mesh openings.
Do not use Microgrit No. 2 on natural silk.
- Dampen the screen with water.
- Sprinkle Microgrit No. 2
liberally on the printing
side of the screen.
- Rub the Microgrit No. 2 back and forth vigorously with a
wet, stiff, short-bristle nylon brush over the entire
printing side. Or, rub a damp, natural fiber rag back and
forth across the printing side of the fabric until the
rag begins to fray.
- Thoroughly rinse the screen with water from both sides,
including the frame and frame corners.
- Degrease the screen with
Screen Degreaser Liquid No. 3 before attempting to make a stencil. For the
convenience of roughening and degreasing in a single
step, and especially for larger screens, use Ulanogel
No. 2 may be irritating if inhaled or if
it comes into contact with the skin or eyes. First
Aid: In case of contact with the eyes or skin, flush
immediately with water for 15 minutes and contact a physician.
