Fotechem 2044 Stencil Remover Conc. Powder
FOTECHEM 2044 is a white, oxidizing powder that can be dissolved in water to make a liquid screen process stencil remover.
Directions For Use
- Dissolve 100 grams of FOTECHEM 2044 in 10-20 liters of water.
- Use this liquid to decoat (reclaim) screen emulsions and polymer films. It does not work on gelatine films.
- Clean stencil from ink. Then brush on the liquid from both sides. Let stand for the necessary time. Hose off with a hard cold water spray. Better is the use of a power spray after the chemical has been rinsed off with a soft spray.
- For stubborn stencils less water can be added to make the product more efficient and to avoid the use of the power spray. Use minimum of 5 liters of water to 100 gr of FOTECHEM 2044 to avoid cry stallization.
To remove stencil emulsions, direct/indirect films and capillary films from all meshes. After printing the stencil must firstly be cleaned from all ink residues before they dry in. To speed up the removal, it is recommended to apply a degreaser and rinse with water before the remover liquid is applied.
Do not let dry the remover liquid on the stencil. Water resistant emulsions need a higher concentration of the remover liquid. Use 5-10 liters of water only to 100 grams of powder.
Underexposed stencils become considerably more difficult to remove. If the wrong ink or an inadequate cleaning agent is used (in relation to the type of emulsion or film), the removal can become difficult.
Chemically hardened emulsions cannot be decoated. The use of an inadequate light source in relation to the type of emulsion can cause removal difficulties.

Being new to the printing game and being self taught I have made a lot of mistakes however, I have rung GJS several times with some pretty lame brain questions and even though GJS have no obligation to help me they have advised me and helped me out or pointed me in the right direction with no questions asked. These guys know what they are talking about.
All the GJS staff are excellent. I have dealt with, Greg was especially helpful when we purchased our set up even though he couldn′t source the printer for me, everything else was great. The Sawgrass SubliM inks are amazing, the ErgoSoft PosterPrint RIP software is really good to, once it was explained to me by Greg it has been fantastic to use. I had an issue with some colour gradients not printing correctly and these were addressed very promptly with some new colour profiles that give even better results than I was getting before.
