Hurst Introduces Clean Air Press Wash
Hurst Graphics has introduced CLIMAX 495 CLEAN AIR PRESS WASH, a high performance, sustainable, biodegradable, deep cleaning blanket and roller wash.
CLIMAX 495 is a one-step press wash having a clear and stable micro emulsion, and requires no pre-mixing.
CLIMAX 495 went through about a year of rigid testing at the Graphic Communication Institute at Cal Poly and was field-tested at commercial printing sites.
Professor Xiaoying Rong, who supervised the tests, said, "The test results are encouraging and showed that good results can be achieved with an automatic wash-up system. Under our current press conditions, we setup the press with Hurst's CLIMAX 495 solution to wash the inking system first without water being involved. The wash-up tray blade was then engaged to remove dissolved ink. The water application was for rinsing after the dissolved ink had been removed. This setting utilized the full power of the Hurst solution, and reduced the total wash up time."
