The Ibeslab ID and Ibeslab QS ink cleaner product ranges offer cleaning solutions designed for every Graphic Arts printing process:
Cleaners depending on the type of ink resin:
We supply a wide range of cleaners for the cleaning of clichés, anilox rollers, clamps, ink circuits and other flexo press tools.
Ibeslab offers flexo printers formulations designed for manual cleaning of UV, solvent and water based inks. The cleaners are optimised to take care of the operator in their working environment, with minimal emissions to the atmosphere creating a safe environment for staff and the environment. The components of our cleaners are selected to protect vulnerable and valuable printing elements such as clichés, rubbers, anilox cylinders, etc.
To assist in the manual application of our products, we offer sponges, brushes and application systems.
For the cleaning of solvent-based and UV-curable inks we generally use alcohol-based formulations and special solvents. We design slow or medium evaporation cleaners as they are more efficient, cost less and reduce evaporation emissions.
For the cleaning of water-based and UV-curable inks, we have water-soluble formulations available on demand or concentrated, so that the customer can add the water at his plant, reducing emissions and transport costs.
When the cleaning of clichés, anilox or printing tools is done in automatic equipment, we offer cleaners compatible with the most recognised brands available on the market in the different systems: Ultra Sound Cleaning, Spray, Immersion or combined systems.
Our laboratory designs and produces formulations on demand, customised for cleaning installations, processes or customer requirements that seek an improvement in the product or performance.
We have a wide range of solvents for cleaning the screen printing screen and printing tools. Ibeslab ID offers a variety of suitable cleaners that effectively remove ink from the fabric while respecting the emulsion of the ink and the safety of the operator performing the tasks.
For the cleaning of solvent-based and UV-curable inks, formulations based on solvent and alcohol are generally used. These ibeslab mixtures are classified according to the degree of evaporation, with medium or slow evaporation mixtures being recommended as they are more effective and lower the consumption of cleaner, reducing evaporation losses.
For the cleaning of water-based and UV-curable vats, water-based formulations or concentrated water-soluble cleaners are available, which are environmentally more sustainable and help to ensure a safer handling environment.
When screen cleaning is carried out on automatic equipment the formulations have been adapted to have a very high Flash Point to ensure the safety requirements of this type of machine in the event of a fire hazard. The option of using water soluble products also helps to meet the requirements of this type of equipment..
Both require optimum efficiency and are safe for the operator and the environment, but automatic cleaners tend to be slower evaporating, for equipment safety and to avoid evaporation losses.
Yes, we can propose customised, more sustainable and efficient alternatives to any product after analysing the customer’s requirements and current process.
Yes. Although a solvent or water based ink cleaner may remove these residues, the items to be cleaned such as clichés or rubbers are made of other more sensitive compounds and could be damaged by the wrong cleaner. It is recommended to use specific cleaners for UV-curable inks.
Yes, the ibeslab ID and ibeslab QS range of cleaners integrates water-based cleaners and other substances with low or no VOCs.
