Back when I did t-shirts I always used solvent based frame adhesive and it always worked well. That was with a 110 mesh. Now I'm also doing signs using UV inks and I use 380/31 mesh for everything. I stretch my screens at 20/n cm^2 but I find the adhesive is too thick to keep that fine mesh down tight and takes a long time to dry.
I've heard of UV frame adhesive but haven't heard if they work or not. What kind of exposure system would I need for this to work?
What do you people think is the best thing to use for a 380 mesh? Solvent for UV adhesive? What's the best stuff to use for UV ink???
