Product specification

Formulated with stubborn flexographic ink in mind, this solvent based ink cleaner is a safer replacement for highly flammable and hazardous solvent cleaners such as Acetone and Ethyl Acetate.

Hurricane’s extreme solubility in water makes the product perfect for general cleaning and ink removal on a wide array of surfaces including flexographic printing equipment, anilox rollers and general surfaces around lithographic, digital process and screen print rooms.
This formulation is incredibly adaptive in use and can be applied by brush, mop and spray, along with many other manual cleaning operations for on press cleaning applications.

Hurricane can also be used in immersion cleaning applications to offer highly effective off-press cleaning and many other automatic machine cleaning operations.

The high solvency of Hurricane makes the product perfect for washing away stubborn and dried ink stains with little effort from the user.

Hurricane is an effective replacement for Acetone and Ethyl Acetate offering safer alternatives to highly flammable solvents. The low volatility of the product reduces vapour build up relative to most other flexographic ink cleaning solutions. Hurricane is not corrosive and is safe on a wide range of surfaces – always test on a small area before use if unsure of result.

Hurricane’s unique formulation means it is completely water soluble, meaning flushing with water ensures complete removal of cleaner and inks. The formulation’s excellent solubility in water means the cleaning operation is slow drying, giving maximum contact time to remove stubborn inks with little effort. Hurricane can be used with water based and solvent based inks.
