OK.. WOW.. All you need to do is coat the screen properly with the correct pressure and a sharp edge scoop coater. dry print side down vertically. Done ..

Thanks Mooseman, I really didn't even notice the edge where it looks like the emulsion looks to have beaded off the screen. I did power spray , degrease, rinse, and dry overnight. You may be correct tho that I did not get it rinsed well enough. I will add that to my check list and make sure it is clean and well rinsed. The 2 screens below this one were ruined as well but I believe it was all due to this screen dripping on the one below, the whole crap rolls downhill scenario.


Thanks again everyone!

A dehumidifier in the dark room / space goes a loooooong way. Coat thinner, or dry quicker. Have seen this before but it’s been many years & I can’t recall the crapstorm of variables.

One problem with a situation such as this is sometimes you solve the problem but don't understand what made the difference.
I can't hold a candle to Rick's experience but offer the following journey to a solution...
you mention the problem on 3 screens so take one and process it exactly the same as you always do
take the next and clean it very well... even wipe it done with alcohol or lacquer thinner or acetone to kill any grease that might be there and coat with the sharp edge coater.
on the 3rd screen try the dehumidifier environment and see where the results take you.
