Sun Chemical introduces new high performance cleaner offering

Printers looking for a high performance and environmentally-friendly cleaning solution which effectively helps scour heavily soiled plates and anilox rollers, can now use Sun Chemical’s newest consumable technology, the SunVisto Anilox Renew and the SunVisto Power Scrub.

SunVisto Anilox Renew is a highly concentrated cleaner designed to provide a deep cleaning foam that brings heavily soiled plates and anilox rollers back to their “like new” condition. Anilox Renew minimizes or eliminates the need for sending anilox rollers out for cleaning. By applying it weekly, most anilox rolls will not require bi-weekly removal and blasting, eliminating costs and improving overall quality.

SunVisto Power Scrub complements the Anilox Renew as a total cleaning system, using the same technology built into Anilox Renew at a more economical price and can be used on any surface. The non-corrosive foaming technology of Power Scrub allows a customer to control the amount of cleaner being applied, reducing the amount of wasted wash.

Power Scrub is also environmentally-friendly as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are less than five percent using Method 24.

“There are a variety of things that could cause a printer to need our new SunVisto Anilox Renew and SunVisto Power Scrub,” said Dennis Sweet, Vice President, Rycoline, Sun Chemical. “These range from printers needing to send out their anilox rollers to be cleaned or soda blasted, losing production time with a press down due to the inability to match color, experiencing dirty print caused by contamination on the printing plates, to simply taking a long time to clean press parts and plates. It is a difference-making solution which can easily wipe away build up and contamination that accumulates during the print process.”

SunVisto Power Scrub and Anilox Renew come in a quart container with a foaming applicator, a two-gallon pump sprayer, a wall mounted foam generator, a foaming wand, and wall mounted dilution units. Each cleaning solution can be used in flexo, corrugated, folding carton and other printing processes, and in commercial coating and UV applications.
