Flexographic washout solvents
Flexochem is set to be the leading supplier of flexographic washout solvents, offering the right chemistry for fast, effective and safe processing of photopolymer printing plates.
With efficient collection of waste flexographic washout solvents for reprocessing at our recycling facility and legal disposal of waste distillation residues.
FlexoChem Fast is the latest advancement in flexographic plate washout solvent technology.
Developed to bring fast processing and a radical change to your working environment .
"It will revolutionise your working environment"
3 x less evaporation
High Flash point 60 Deg C (140 F)
Conventional and Digital plates
Enhanced solvency for Digital LAM's, capping and release layers
Easy to recyle
FlexoChem Fast radically changes the working environment with a clean scent. No more foul-smelling solvent washout solutions.
FlexoChem Fast has a quick processing and drying time leaving virtually no residual odor in finished plates. Digital LAMs, capping and release layers
dissolve quickly and completely with FlexoChem Fast resulting in a cleaner Flexographic washout unit, and energy savings are realized
as this OSHA-friendly processing solution operates at lower temperatures. FlexoChem Fast is the healthier option for you, your company and the environment. It’s
a wonderful alternative to traditional solvents used to process flexo plates. Developed to replace hazardous low flash odourous solvents
FlexoChem Fast - Recycling. Flexochem offers a professional recycling and return to customer service with our back to original guarantee. Alternatively
Flexochem Fast can be easily vacuum regenerated with the correct recycling equiment.
Flexochem Fast washout solvent uses low-odour components with a greatly-reduced evaporation rate, resulting in three times less solvent in the atmosphere and creating a far more pleasant working environment.
At its heart is a proprietary blend of imported additive solvents called NoveX-DP. These additives are responsible for interrupting the photopolymer bonds on a molecular level allowing unpolymerised (unexposed) areas of the plate to be dissolved at a faster rate than high-boiling point washout solvents, while being gentle on the exposed (developed) portions.
‘The key to a great solvent is to wash quickly and efficiently while not swelling the imaged area, allowing a cleaner, sharper-edged image,’
But it’s not just about quality; it’s also about safety.
The imported NoveX-DP components increase conductivity and raise the flash point, providing added safety from a fire hazard point of view. In addition, they also consist of large molecules that greatly reduce absorption into the body. ‘This is a great bonus for anyone who is health conscious.
