Technical Specifications

Directions for On-Press Color Changes:

  1. Preparation: Ensure you have the necessary eye protection and gloves before starting the process. Have a container of Franmar Aqua Wash within easy reach.
  2. Ink Removal on Press: When performing color changes on the press, apply a small amount of Aqua Wash directly onto the ink-covered area of the screen.
  3. Brushing In: Use a brush soaked in water to gently scrub the Aqua Wash onto the ink. This helps the ink remover penetrate and break down the water-based ink effectively.
  4. Rinsing: Once the Aqua Wash has been applied and allowed to work for a few moments, rinse the screen with water to wash away the dissolved ink and Aqua Wash residues.
  5. Repeating if Necessary: For stubborn ink residues or heavy ink deposits, you may need to repeat the process until the screen is thoroughly cleaned.
  6. Safety Precautions: Always wear protective eye gear and gloves throughout the process to ensure safety.

Directions for Using Aqua Wash as an Ink Degradent in the Washout Booth:

  1. Safety First: Prior to starting, put on appropriate eye protection and gloves to protect yourself during the cleaning process.
  2. Application: In the washout booth, apply a generous amount of Aqua Wash directly onto the ink-stained areas of the screen. Ensure that the entire stained surface is covered with Aqua Wash.
  3. Brushing In: Use a water-soaked brush to gently scrub the Aqua Wash onto the ink stains. This will aid in breaking down and lifting the water-based ink residues from the mesh.
  4. Dwell Time: Allow the Aqua Wash to dwell on the ink stains for a few minutes, ensuring it has enough time to dissolve the ink.
  5. Rinsing: Thoroughly rinse the screen with pressured water to wash away the dissolved ink and Aqua Wash residues. Rinse from both sides of the screen for a complete clean.
  6. Safety Reminder: Throughout the entire process, be diligent about wearing your eye protection and gloves for safety.
