DESCRIPTION

System EXO Screen Prep Paper is a revolutionary, environmentally friendly way to make and reclaim screens without any chemicals. EXOstencil Screen Prep Paper is the two paper system used for creating stencil allowing to produce quality screen printed products faster.
This process for manufacturing screens is proper for mesh count from 85-230. Product is designated for laser printers, we recommend to use it with OKI C833 and heat press platen for making screen printed products. Paper will not work with solvent-based inks, only with plastisol and water-based inks.

Two items in set:
  • paper with BROWN GRID on the back
  • paper with YELLOW GRID on the back
INSTRUCTIONS

To get started, you need to print artwork using a laser printer on the EXOstencil paper with BROWN GRID on the back.

PRINTING (in CoreDRAW X4):
  1. Make a negative stencil-right facing image of the art to be screen printed. Include any alignment marks needed.
  2. Use the "heavy paper" setting to ensure fusing of the toners and "high resolution" settings to ensure a continuous toner application. If not using an OKI® printer, printing the image with red or blue toner may result in a better image.
  3. Inspect the EXOstencil paper for areas of damaged coating resulting from mishandling (these areas will create voids in the stencil).
  4. Load the EXOstencil Screen Prep Paper with the brown grid on the back so that the image will appear on the plain, unprinted side of the paper and with the short dimension feeding into the printer (grain long).
  5. Each colour should be printed separately on another sheet of EXOstencil paper with BROWN GRID. For graphic with 3 colours you need 3 sheets of EXOstencil paper with BROWN GRID on the back.
APPLYING THE DRY ADHESIVE USING A HEAT PRESS:
  1. Position the red/yellow grid transfer sheet face down over the printed image & position the brown image paper transfer sheet face up on the bottom platen of the pan
  2. Press settings:
    • temperature: 93°C (200°F)
    • pressure: medium (4-5 bar or 70 PSI)
    • time: 25 seconds
  3. Separate papers in a smooth, even motion while still hot, taking care to not burn fingers.
TRANSFERRING TO THE SCREEN USING A HEAT PRESS:
  1. Place the 85–230 mesh count screen on the heat press, with the frame facing down.
  2. Position the image face down on the screen to ensure all images align. Keep the image about 1" from press edges for best adhesion.
  3. Press settings:
    • temperature: 204°C (400°F)
    • pressure: medium (4 bar or 60 PSI)
    • time: 2 minutes
    Note: If not using an OKI® printer, start at 2 minutes at 177°C (350°F).
    Obtaining desired adhesion may be challenging with some laser printers.
  4. Allow the transfer paper to cool by waiving the screen in an up and down motion.
  5. Peel the transfer paper away from the screen in one smooth motion.
  6. Block the edges as you would with any screen.
  7. Apply tape to spot repair any non-printed voids.
  8. Use the screen stencil as you would an emulsion stencil.
CHEMICAL FREE SCREEN CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS:

Pressure wash with at least 1500 PSI (103 bar), ensuring that the stencil is removed from all pores. Some harmless staining may remain.
