Ulano 2 Microgrit is an inert, abrasive powder that mechanically roughens or abrades nylon and polyester. Roughening increases the surface area of synthetic fabrics for a better mechanical bond with indirect films and direct emulsions, better fabric water retention for the adhering of CDFÂ® direct-films, and extended stencil life with any stencil system. The particles in Microgrit No. 2 are fine enough (18-20 microns) to pass through even the smallest mesh openings. Do not use Microgrit No. 2 on natural silk. Instructions Dampen the screen with water. Sprinkle Microgrit No. 2 liberally on the printing side of the mesh. Rub the Microgrit No. 2 back and forth vigorously with a wet, stiff, short-bristle nylon brush over the entire printing side. Or rub a damp, natural fiber rag back and forth across the printing side of the mesh until the rag begins to fray. Thoroughly rinse the screen with water from both sides, including the frame and frame corners. Degrease the screen with Screen Degreaser Liquid No. 3 before attempting to make a stencil. For the convenience of roughening and degreasing in a single step, and especially for larger screens, use Ulano Gel 23. Microgrit No. 2 may be irritating if inhaled or if it comes into contact with the skin or eyes. First Aid: In case of contact with the eyes or skin, flush immediately with water for 15 minutes and contact a physician.
