Promoting environmentally friendly and safe cleaning
Follmann developed its first cleaner for printing machines
With the new Folco Cleaner FV 2021, Follmann is launching its first cleaner for printing machines, which is optimally matched to the company’s water-based printing inks for food packaging.
As an expert in the development and manufacture of speciality chemicals, Follmann not only offers its customers a comprehensive product portfolio, but also individual solutions and a wide range of services. In the field of water-based printing inks, the company’s services range from analysis, colourimetry and process optimisation on site to advice on the implementation of dosing systems. In addition, the company shows its customers solutions and highlights potential savings for the reuse of residual inks.
With the new Folco Cleaner FV 2021, Follmann has now developed a cleaning product for the first time which is optimally matched to the water-based printing inks and thus perfectly complements the range. The cleaner can be used to remove ink residues from printing machines and their associated components efficiently, hygienically and in an environmentally friendly manner. ISEGA has classified it as food safe and therefore approved for use on printing machines for food packaging. During the development, Follmann also took care to use easily biodegradable raw materials in accordance with OECD guidelines.
“We are continuously working on expanding our range, as we want to offer our customers everything from a single source and thus a comprehensive no-hassle package. We are therefore pleased to be able to provide you with the right cleaner for our water-based printing inks’, says Roland Geiselhart, Director Business Unit Print + Packaging at Follmann. “We will also be launching a new range of water-based printing inks shortly, which we originally wanted to present at this year’s drupa.”
