Press Wash: Water-Miscible

Varn® A-230 Blanket Wash, developed in collaboration with Heidelberg and Böttcher Roller Company, is a high-quality press wash solvent designed specifically for offset printing. This water-miscible wash offers several advantages over traditional solvents, making it an ideal choice for environmentally conscious printing professionals.

Environmentally Friendly and Efficient

The special feature of Varn A-230 Blanket Wash is its water miscibility. This means that it can be easily mixed with water, reducing the amount of chemicals required for cleaning. By using water as a component, it offers several benefits:

  • Reduced environmental impact: Less chemicals are used, resulting in a lower environmental footprint.
  • Cleans water-soluble contaminants: The wash effectively removes water-based ink, gum glaze, paper dust, lint, and other water-soluble contaminants.
  • Adjustable strength: Users have the flexibility to regulate the strength of the wash by adjusting the water-to-solvent ratio.

Safe and Effective Cleaning

Varn A-230 Blanket Wash is formulated to clean modern rubber compounds without harming the elastomers or synthetic ingredients used in blanket and roller manufacturing. It works well on blankets and rollers from any manufacturer. The wash offers the following advantages:

  • Baldwin sheetfed-approved: Trusted and recommended by industry professionals.
  • Excellent cleaning strength: Especially effective for sensitive rubber compounds, ensuring thorough cleaning.
  • Mild on blankets and rollers: It is very gentle on the surfaces, protecting the longevity of your printing equipment.
  • No swelling of rubber compounds: The wash is designed to prevent any undesirable swelling of rubber compounds.
  • Designed for high-tech rubber compounds: It is optimized to work with the latest rubber compound technologies.

Application and Directions

Blankets: Apply Varn A-230 Blanket Wash directly by hand or use a damp rag for convenient removal of both water-soluble and solvent-soluble contaminants in a single step.

Rollers: This wash can be used as a one-step solution with automated wash-up attachments or manually with a wash-up bottle. For manual usage, Varn A-230 may be mixed with up to 25% water in a wash-up bottle. However, do not dilute the wash with water in automated wash-up systems to avoid product separation.
