Let’s face it. Cleaning presses can be a real pain in the you-know-what! It’s not fun, and it’s just about the last thing in the world printers want to do. But if you don’t find time to do necessary maintenance and cleaning, you can set yourself up for a wide range of problems such as roller stripping, glazing, ink emulsification, picture framing, etc. When these problems rear their ugly heads, you will consume a lot of time and effort trying to figure out what’s going on. It’s like that old expression…. you can pay me now, or pay me later, but you’ll spend a lot more time and money if you pay later.
This is where Clear Gel Roller Cleaner and Deglazer can become your new best friend and cleaning buddy. Applying a thin bead to rollers will dissolve paper glaze from calcium, and will remove other contaminants so your rollers perform line new! You can even go from black to yellow easily! And it’s safe for daily use. With Clear Gel there is no need to stock separate calcium or glaze removers.
Some products recommend leaving their cleaner on overnight for maximum effectiveness. Not Clear Gel. It works quickly so you can apply it and have time for more important things. Sure, you could leave it on overnight if you want (it won’t swell rollers), but it’s not necessary.
Clear Gel’s convenient squeeze bottle is easy to use too. Liquid deglazers can be harder to handle and may be hazardous. What could be easier than shake, apply and remove with your favorite roller wash?
Clear Gel is safe for all presses and rollers – even acrylic. Years ago, when T-Heads were quite popular, Townsend sent us a great testimonial about the effectiveness of Clear Gel on their acrylic rollers.
We’ve also had testimonials from dealer reps touting how well Clear Gel worked on large presses. It was able to pull old ink out of rollers that were supposedly well maintained.
If you’re not happy with your current roller cleaners or deglazers, or if you’d prefer to buy one product that cleans and deglazes instead of stocking multiple products, give Clear Gel a try! You won’t be disappointed.
