bubbles & beyond, a technology company focusing on customized intelligent fluids, announced the official launch of its enpurex product line, a range of next-generation cleansing agents that mark the beginning of a new era in printing industry cleaning. The cleansers are water-based, non-flammable, free from aggressive chemicals, biodegradable, and also superior to existing products in terms of efficacy. enpurex products are based on bubbles & beyond's novel, proprietary intelligent fluids™ approach and offer significant process cost savings, excellent compatibility of materials, optimum efficacy and operating safety.
The enpurex product portfolio currently covers three different cleansers – ONLINE, 95 PLUS, and PRO.
ONLINE is designed for the cleaning of printing rolls, in particular anilox rolls during production, and removes UV-curing, solvent- and water-based printing inks as well as ink glazing.
95 PLUS is a manual cleanser to remove dispersion- and water-based printing ink as well as print lacquer from printing rolls.
The most powerful enpurex cleanser PRO, is a manual cleanser for removing persistent and older staining. Due to incorporated "micro erasers", it removes all kinds of printing inks, including 2k lacquer and UV curing ink and also gets rid of calcium glazing.
The enpurex product line is completed by the surfiMAX cleaning sponges: surfiMAX cleaning sponge C a pop-up sponge which is especially absorbent and resistant to solvents, surfiMAX M, micropore cleaning sponges, which can be divided into two sub-types: M-ON, which is designed to evenly spread enpurex products and to enhance their intrusion into tiny cracks and craters of the surface material, and M-OFF which removes deeply rooted dirt gently and effectively as well as the round cleaning sponge R, which is designed to remove ink residues online in combination with the print roll cleaner ONLINE.
enpurex products are designed to remove all sorts of inks and lacquers used in the printing industry by a unique and fast easy-wipe effect. Thereby, down-time is reduced significantly and printing rolls can be used more versatile across different colors, reducing the need to stockpile print rolls.
"During the beta phase of testing our enpurex products, our collaborating printing plants have already achieved significant process cost savings," said Christian Roemlein, managing director of bubbles & beyond. "We have demonstrated that our enpurex cleansers can remove residues far more efficient and faster than conventional cleansers – without the safety concerns attributed to conventional cleansers and cleaning procedures."
