Lithographic printers do not need high VOC’s, regulated toxins, or hazardous air pollutants to print.

Just because pressroom chemistries once contained these components, it does not mean that you still need them to print. On the contrary, Amerikal chemistry outperforms compromising the safety of the press operator or final consumer.

Not all of our pressroom chemistry is listed on the website menu. Here are a few of Amerikal’s other regulatory compliant pressroom chemicals…

Anti Foam — VERY Highly Concentrated — Once capful will suppress the foam in a Fountain Solution Tank

Silicone — VERY Highly Concentrated — You pay for silicone, not additional water

SSRA — Silicone-based Die Release Agent and Surface Friction Reducer

UVLRC — UV Aluminum Reflector and Bulb Cleaner

Adhesive Remover — Excellent, highly evaporative solvent, but still with Zero VOC’s

By removing solvents and petrochemicals from the printing process
Amerikal pressroom products print cleaner and sharper.

BRIGL & AUTOWASH 2001-40

Extremely Effective Bio-Based Low VOC Press Wash / Roller Wash, Blanket Wash

Low VOC Press Wash / Blanket & Roller Wash

The Next Generation of Blanket and Roller Cleaners..

Genesis® manufactures two low VOC Blanket Wash / Roller Wash / Press Washes, AW 2001-40 (Autowash 2001-40) and BRIGL (pronounced, BREEGUL). In an effort to eliminate petrochemical based raw materials, both utilize renewable resources grown on American farms. In fact, 90% of the raw materials in Brigl Wash are grown on American Farms. Both bio-based washes are extremely effective on cold set, heat set, UV & electron beam inks on both web and sheet fed presses. Just one of our press washes can clean blankets and rollers across the entire pressroom.

The Difference is Clear!

  • One press wash can be used throughout your entire facility to effectively clean cold set, heat set, and energy curable inks
  • Genesis Low VOC Press Wash / Roller Wash is manufactured using renewable resources grown on American farms, is non-hazardous and safer for your employees, community and prolongs the life of your press and rollers
  • When used in automatic systems the waste wash can be processed into bio-diesel used to fuel trucks and equipment
In 1989, Amerikal Products Corporation introduced Genesis, a full line of sustainable pressroom chemistries which includes fountain solutions and blanket and roller washes. Today, Genesis® continues to set the standard by developing innovative products that are easy to use, safer and more productive, resulting in lower overall costs.

Both Genesis washes are based on renewable resources grown on American Farms. These products cut and clean ink significantly better than competitive traditional washes and zero and low VOC washes.

Genesis® CaCO3 Cleaner

Genesis® CaCO3 Cleaner is the smart, safe way to remove calcium from your system.

  • Are you battling roller-stripping from glazing/calcium build-up on your rollers or blankets?

  • Do you currently use vinegar or a calcium rinse for rollers?

Genesis CaCO3 Cleaner can assist in eliminating many blanket and roller issues associated with calcium deposits. When used as a final roller rinse, CaCO3 is extremely effective in removing calcium contaminants.

Using CaCO3 in combination with Genesis® Roller Cleaning Paste leaves rollers thoroughly cleaned and conditioned.

CaCO3 As A Fountain Solution Additive

CaCO3 may also be used as a fountain solution additive in extreme cases of roller-stripping, glazing, plate-blinding and/or paper dust deposits on blankets.

CaCO3 helps stop calcium deposits from adhering to ink rollers or filling plate-grain, keeping these deposits suspended in the fountain solution.

Add a measured percentage of CaCO3 directly into your fountain solution with a Chemical Proportioning System from Amerikal.

 

Genesis® CaCO3 Compliance

• VOC Method 24: 0.37 lbs per U.S. Gallon In Concentrate

Genesis THINK™ – Thin Ink Technology

Who needs UV or IR when there’s Thin Ink Technology?

Would you like to turn down the spray powder, or turn off those lamps? Now it is possible with THINK™, the latest addition to the Genesis® line of pressroom products.

Amerikal prides itself on doing things the right way — our innovative ink technology is no different. We have developed a high-solids ink without solvents that works in combination with, not against, the fountain solution.

Amerikal’s unique position as a fountain solution manufacturer allowed us to change the rules and co develop both Thin Ink and Genesis® fountain solution.  This translates to more stable emulsions at the plate surface than was previously thought possible.

Genesis® fountain solution will not attack or bleed the ink, ensuring the printed image replicates the plate image precisely. This yields significantly higher screen values and color brilliance.

THINK™ is not a petroleum-based ink, so does not rely on absorption into the substrate or evaporation to dry. The result is minimal ink and fountain solution usage never before imagined in Lithographic Printing.

VEA – The Pressmans “Secret Sauce”

With multiple uses including…

  • Enhancing Ink Transfer
  • Tack Reducer
  • Roller Lubricant
  • Ink Film Stability Enhancer
  • Anti-Skin
  • Roll-Up Aid

Transfer is the Key!

With high-solid inks dominating the energy curable market, many presses struggle to transfer the pigment down the ink train.

In fact, you will find that with the damps off, many inks struggle to transfer at all.

Try it yourself — turn off the damps.  After an initial flood, the color will simply fade away.  Mix in 1/8 – 1/4 oz of VEA per pound of ink and you will be amazed how transfer returns.

Even with normal printing, see how much deeper and more vibrant your colors are.

• VOC Method 24: ZERO
• ZERO SARA Title 313 Chemicals
• ZERO Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP’s)
• Meets SCAQMD Rule 1171 Requirements

VEA uses are not limited to ink transfer

As a tack-reducer and roll-up-aid, it can save $1,000’s on restarts.

Web presses can be a challenge to get running, especially if you have wet, tacky ink on the blankets.
However, a quick spray with VEA makes web-breaks and wrap-ups during restart a thing of the past.

However, customers that use 950 started reporting a multitude of other applications ranging from pet stain removal to engine cleaning and the list continues to grow.

Genesis® 950 works with water to break a stain’s molecular bonding. Once broken, the stain becomes water soluble and can be simply rinsed, wiped, or wet vacuumed away, removing both the stain and any associated smells.

Use Genesis® 950 to clean your equipment, floors, carpet, kitchens and bathrooms. It is truly an All Purpose Cleaner.

Genesis® 950 is now used by industry & consumers throughout the USA with professionals using Genesis® 950 in cleaning services, car detailing shops & even crime scene clean-up.

Genesis® MDAT – The Isopropanol Alcohol Replacement.

Due to its rapid evaporation, alcohol has been the cleaning solution of choice for 2 piece can and Metal Deco printers across the board. However, as you probably already know it’s a very poor cleaner. Operators use copious quantities of alcohol, to soak & dilute the ink, flushing it away through sheer volume.

Now printers have a choice!

MDAT has been developed to not only evaporate fast, but is also a far superior cleaner. Using only a fraction of the amount previously used, MDAT will thoroughly clean your fountains and rollers significantly reducing the amount of solvent and rags required.
