Screen printing washout booth ,the most colour ful of several conflicting theories is that, like so many other great inventions, screen printing originated in China. Textile prints from China of great age do exist and it is believed that they were produced by some form of stencil system in which human hair was used to support the unattached parts of the master stencil. The prints are reputed to be nearly two thousand years old, hence there is no corroborative evidence proving how the prints were made; suffice it to say that they could have been produced by a system similar to what we know as screen printing.
Screen printing washout booth was used in the textiles printing industry that the first modern form of the process originated in both England and France about 1850. Details of the method used are now unclear but it seemed to incorporate the use of a stencil system for the production of continuous lengths of printed fabric. In 1907 Samuel Simon of Manchester was using a fabric printing system in which the designs were produced from stencils which were drawn onto bolting cloth stretched on frames but the printing operation, if it can be called that, was made by brush through the mesh.
Albert Kosloff gave a demonstration in Berlin in 1920 of screen printing on paper using a wooden frame stretched with bolting cloth which supported a stencil and on which a rubber-bladed squeegee was used to print the ink through the stencil. Shortly afterwards, Kosloff emigrated to the USA and there became one of the pioneers of the process.
The first commercial use of the process in modern times seems to have been in the USA about the year 1911. A group of enterprising signwriters foresaw the need for the quantity production of destination boards and advertising signs for the newly motorised omnibuses. John Pilsworth is cited as being the leader of this team, which also used bolting cloth as the means of supporting their hand-cut paper stencils. Bolting cloth was the name given to the material woven from natural silk which for many years had been used for sieving flour in the milling industry. Its ready availability and relatively low price assisted the development of the new process and a company was formed to market the signs – The Selectasine Company.
Realising the big potential of their process these pioneers developed their business further and provided the know-how to other companies under a licensing system.
A Lieutenant-Colonel Mayhew, who was a member of a milling company in Britain, obtained the United Kingdom patent rights from Selectasine in 1918 and set up a similarly named company, Selecticin, in London. Largely due to Colonel Mayhew’s efforts, news of the new printing technique spread and it was adopted by a number of companies in the advertising and sign writing trades. Early development was largely hampered by lack of suitable materials and the screen printers had to solve all the technical problems that the new technique produced.
Screen printing washout booth ,Once the screen is properly exposed, you can remove it from the immediate light source and remove the positive. As soon as the positive is removed, you should start washing it out (under normal indoor lighting conditions, most emulsions won’t develop in a matter of minutes while you’re getting to the sink, etc., but don’t dawdle too much, and certainly don’t remove the positive, and plan to come back to wash out the screen at another time). This is done under regular tap water, nothing special required. If the screen was exposed properly, the unexposed portions should begin to become visible almost immediately under a strong flow of water, and a little vigorous scrubbing with your finger tips will have it fully removed in 10 to 15 minutes, or so. Once the stencil is totally washed out and allowed to dry, you’ve got yourself a stencil, perfect for screen printing
