DUALMERKE

Developed primarily for the effective manual cleaning of blankets and rollers in all offset presses using conventional inks, it may also be used alternatively as an automatic wash, in sheetfed and coldset presses only.
Dualmerke is a water miscible wash, to thoroughly remove all gum glaze and paper fibers encrusted in the rubber surfaces.

  • It is a well balanced hydrocarbons blend, mainly of aliphatics and a moderate proportion of aromatics.
  • Exempt of chlorinated compounds.
  • It has a medium evaporation rate and flash point, giving it a fast drying characteristic.
  • It has optimum water miscibility. For manual wash it can be pre-mixed with water to allow a faster and effective cleaning of both ink and water soluble residues in the rubber surfaces.
  • Being itself easily removed with water, it leaves no residues on the blankets and no droplets formation on the plates tail edges.
  • When used as an automatic wash, Dualmerke does not cause draining blockages in the pipes, nozzles and reservoirs of the automatic wash systems and the blankets wash-up trays.
  • It offers anticorrosion protection.
  • Dualmerke does not cause damages in the presses, being safe for both metallic and plastic components.
  • It is safe for all mostly used plates in the market.
