Cork Clean UV Wash

CORK-CLEAN™ is an aqueous, blanket and roller wash for UV coatings. It greatly reduces the odor, toxicity, and flammability hazards associated with solvent-based UV washes.

CORK-CLEAN™ is designed specifically for use with Cork Industries' GREEN20™ and GREENSOFT™ products, but it works as a blanket and roller wash for all commercial UV coatings.
Use this product for coater, anilox, and roller cleanup.

Features:

  • Nonflammable
  • Concentrated
  • Low odor

Benefits:

  • Concentrated product may be used neat or cut 50:50 with water.
  • Will not contaminate Cork Industries' Green-Series UV/EB coatings.
  • Improved work environment.

Cleaning

Better Than Conventional UV Wash
Conventional UV wash products are solvent based, they have low flash points (e.g., 145°F), and they have a very high VOC content—50% to 78% or greater. The high flammability of conventional UV wash products makes clean up the most hazardous job for a UV printer.  Solvent-based UV washes leave a residue because they dissolve the UV coating. The thin solvent film evaporates and leaves some dissolved UV on the surface just cleaned!

Cork Clean is the Smarter, Safer UV Wash

  • Cork-Clean™ is an aqueous, blanket and roller wash for UV coatings. It greatly reduces the odor, toxicity, and flammability hazards associated with solvent-based UV washes.
  • Cork-Clean™ was designed specifically for use with Cork Industries' Green20™, Low Carbon Footprint (LCF), and GreenSoft™ products, but it works as a blanket and roller wash for all commercial UV coatings.

How it Works

  • Cork-Clean™ is an aqueous-based product which reacts with a UV coating. The reaction makes the UV coating dispersible in Cork-Clean™ and serves to take the UV coating from rubber rolls and out of anilox cells cleanly.
  • The wash then rinses off with no residue.
  • Cork-Clean™ is safe for butyl rubber and all typical elastomeric rollers.

Instructions for Cleaning UV Ink Rollers:

  • Apply Cork-Clean™ to rollers.
  • Allow 20 to 30 seconds to penetrate.
  • Apply more Cork-Clean™ as needed until rollers are ink free.
  • When ink free, rinse or wipe thoroughly with tap water.
  • DO NOT rinse or wipe with water until roller is ink free.
  • Dry water with clean rag.

Note: Your initial clean up may take longer than normal as Cork-Clean™ will release embedded ink pigments from rollers. After repeated applications, your rollers will return to a near-original condition.
