Water-Based Ink Cleaner

Easily clean dried water-based inks with Franmar’s Aqua Wash

Until now, it has been nearly impossible to wash dried water based inks off screens. Now the impossible is possible with Franmar Chemical, Inc.’s announcement of the release of its latest product, Aqua-Wash.
Screen printers are celebrating the virtues of the softness and texture that water based inks provide when applied to clothing. While working with these inks, printers quickly learn that different brands of ink, even different colors within the same brands, dry differently. The variance in drying times with these new inks sometimes leaves screen printers with the task of cleaning up far more mess than they anticipated. This is where Aqua Wash comes in.
Aqua Wash Water Based Ink Cleaner has the same great benefits found in Franmar’s line of signature screen cleaners; cleaning without the odor of traditional cleaners, 100% biodegradable, drain safe, and non caustic are all properties that make Franmar products really stand out. All it takes is a few sprays on the screen, a scrub with a pad, and the ink will wash down the drain with water.
Aqua Wash is now available for purchase at distributors nationwide or at Customers can also call Franmar’s Customer Service at 1-800-538-5069 to locate a nearby distributor or to purchase directly.
