WALK AWAY HAZE REMOVER
A COATABLE INK STAIN AND STENCIL RESIDUE HAZE REMOVER; CONTAINS NO VOCs.
Walk Away Haze Remover is a thick liquid haze remover effective against most ink stains and stencil residues. Walk Away Haze Remover is formulated to react as it dries on the screen, so that it can be applied and left to work for a period of hours, or overnight. This dwell time will not harm polyester, nylon, or stainless steel fabric, but will damage metalized (nickel-coated) polyester. After initial drying, if additional reaction time is required, Walk Away Haze Remover can be reactivated by rewetting it with All-Purpose Ink Wash.
Step 1:REMOVE THE STENCIL AND DRY THE SCREEN.
Remove the stencil with a commercial stencil remover and power spray. Dry the screen thoroughly.
Step 2: APPLY WALK AWAY HAZE REMOVER TO THE SCREEN
Apply Walk Away Haze Remover to the fabric with a stainless steel coating trough. (Walk Away Haze Remover reacts with aluminum.) Walk Away Haze Remover can also be applied with a plastic card, a rag, or a sponge, as long as it fills the mesh openings and is layered on the surface of the fabric. To avoid contamination, discard any excess Walk Away Haze Remover rather than put it back in the container.
Step 3: DRY WALK AWAY HAZE REMOVER COMPLETELY
Walk Away Haze Remover reacts with ink stains and stencil residues during its drying, so let it dry completely so that it reacts completely. When dry, Walk Away Haze Remover assumes a crystalline appearance and turns white. Drying time can be accelerated with a fan or in a commercial drying unit.
Step 4: RINSE WALK AWAY HAZE REMOVER OFF THE SCREEN WITH WATER
Walk Away Haze Remover works best if it is removed from the screen first with a high pressure water spray (contrary to the procedure with most screen chemicals, which should be flushed away with low pressure first, to avoid high-pressure splashbacks). Obviously, then, eyes and skin protection are essential.
OPTIONAL REACTIVATING TREATMENT
The procedures outlined above will remove virtually all ink stains and stencil residues. If haze and ghost images persist, however, it is possible to reactivate Walk Away Haze Remover by rewetting it—not with water, but with All-Purpose Ink Wash. Brush All-Purpose Ink Wash thoroughly on both sides of the fabric to re-wet Walk Away Haze Remover. Flush with low pressure water, followed by a high-pressure power spray.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin; wear gloves, goggles, and protective clothing when using Walk Away Haze Remover. Work in a well ventilated area; do not breathe the fumes; note exposure limits and wear respiratory protection if they are exceeded. Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for additional information.
