HI,

i have been wanting to ask if screen printing could cause illness due to long time exposure to the chemicals we use. I know there ate eco friendly chemicals and inks now but I just still want to ask. I have just read the MSDS sheets of the products I'm planning to buy, and some of them have a "YES" in being carcinogenic, specifically plastisol ink (specifically International Coatings). And I am switching to plastisol ink because I can't handle waterbased ink properly, just dries up and clogs my screen overtime.i just want an honest opinion and/or experience about the health risks involved in screen printing (inks and chemicals) so that i'll know what to watch out for and hopefully calm down worried relatives of my screen printing hobby (soon to be business). I've asked many printers in Facebook and somehow they don't give me straight answers and just tell meto read the MSDS sheet. Of course MsDS will be playing it safe saying somehow a person has to wear gloves, masks and even goggles in handling some of the chemicals or to some degree it will irritate skin or the respiratory tract. but when we watch screen printing videos, people print and reclaim screens without the goggles, masks and gloves.I would appreciate any answers! And I hope Jonathan (hello! I'm a fan!) would make a video about it tooor at least be one of the people who answers this question.



Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
