The Basics of Burning and Exposing A Screen Print Frame.

Hello I’m Cam welcome to the screen print training videos series today we are talking about burning screens.

The process of buring a screen is pretty straight forward.
We place the film positive on the glass.
Then lay a screen coated with emulsion over the film.
Below the glass is a uv light source, we have a 50 watt led about 3 feet away.
The uv light hardens the areas of coated mesh not covered by the black on the film positive.
After it is burned you spray the screen with water and the areas of the screen not hit with light wash away to create a detailed stencil in the mesh.

Pretty simple right? Well Theres a little more to it that that, as a printer theres abunch of small technical choices that you have to make to burn the proper screen for the job your printing.

The point of this training vid is to demonstrate the basics and dive into the details of thoses steps.
