Simply Clean - Pressroom Cleaning Products
Simply Clean is All Printing Resources’ line of products designed to clean flexographic inks efficiently. There are eight different solutions tailored to what you want to clean. Some are multi-purpose cleaners that work on all types of ink and throughout the pressroom, while others are designed for more targeted purposes. In preparing this product line, we have considered factors such as if your ink is UV, water or solvent based; if you are cleaning plates, anilox rolls or parts of the press; and if you have specific environmental or pH requirements; as well as cost. (See chart below for details on all Simply Clean products).
Benefits of our four most popular cleaners:
SimplyClean AC Non-caustic, biodegradable, UV/water-based ink cleaner and emulsifier improves your print quality. Safe for your equipment, the environment, your employees and your bottom line. It’s fast, effective and the perfect answer for your entire facility – from anilox rolls, doctor blades, ink pans to equipment, cabinets and floors. Amazing emulsification qualities in SimplyCleanAC allow it to break down, re-wet, emulsify, then suspend ink – and avoid redeposit to cleaned surfaces. Maintains pH over 12.0 after dilution, readily removes ink and reduces the need for corrosive deep cleaners. Consistently outperforms comparable caustic cleaners for maximum cleaning efficiency. Contains no VOCs, phenols, caustic or corrosive chemicals, and no solvents or SARA Title III chemicals.
SimplyClean PR Nothing works better to emulsify UV or water-based inks. The longer the ink has cured, the better this non-caustic solution out-performs its highly caustic competitors. Recommended as a press wash but not recommended for plate machines. Can be diluted 3:1 for easier usage as a powerful all-purpose cleaner.
SimplyClean MA Designed for Ultra Sonic Machines and Anilox Washers. Quickly removes UV, water or solvent-based inks. Very similar to Simply CleanAC and SimplyCleanPR but contains caustic. However, it is not as harsh as some competitive caustic cleaners. (Health rating of 2). Our clients have found this to be the best cleaner for dried ink - works faster than SimplyCleanPR but costs slightly more. We are getting rave reviews for this cleaner.
SimplyClean SW Use this highly effective, non-caustic solution in mechanical plate washers to remove solvent ink.
The Simply Clean line also offers these specialty cleaning solutions

SimplyClean LF - a low-foam option for high-agitation parts washers
