Q:  What kinds of emulsions are recommended for use with Franmar cleaners?

A:  Most emulsions will work with Franmar's line of cleaners.  Keep in mind that Franmar's environmentally friendly cleaners require the use of water during the clean-up process, so having an emulsion with some water resistance is important.

Q:  Franmar cleaners are softening my emulsion.  Why?

A:  One possible cause for this is that the emulsion is not fully cured.  Another possibility is that it's not actually the cleaner softening the emulsion, but the water that is used to rinse the screen.  The emulsion used needs to have some water resistance to it.
