In response to the growing interest in press washes with lower volatile organic compounds than levels now found in VOC-exempt petroleum-based solvents or vegetable oil-based washes, Varn has introduced MicroKleen, which reduces VOCs by up to 90%.
The patent-pending green technology cleans by encapsulating the ink, allowing a press operator to easily and safely wipe it away with just water.
According to Varn, MicroKleen allows returning to color “immediately with virtually no paper waste,” and is economical owing to a cleaning ability that gives better results with less wash.
Based in Dayton, Ohio, Varn is a brand of pressroom chemicals from Day International, a Flint Group company.
