AquaSol Keeping Your Anilox Rollers in Top Condition

Specifically formulated for anilox rollers in your flexographic print, AquaSol is a safe and effective cleaning solution that (we are pleased to say) has become the preferred solution for many of the UK flexographic printers, especially those in the Corrugated Board sector.

With over 20 years supporting the flexographic print industry, we have constantly evolved and developed our range of cleaning solutions.

To ensure your anilox rollers are kept in top condition, it is essential to use a specialist cleaning solution. Using the correct cleaning solution will avoid damaging the intricate cells of the anilox rollers, and achieve a thorough clean. Dried ink embedded in the cells, won’t be cleaned by water alone.

There is a direct correlation between the quality of print achieved and the condition of your anilox rollers. Well maintained anilox rollers will deliver consistent high-quality print. Implementing the correct care of your anilox rollers will pro-long their life, benefiting you with the unnecessary need of changing these expensive (and critical) components.

Unfortunately, too often we visit sites that are not using the correct cleaning solution, or enforcing the correct care and maintenance of anilox rollers, which has resulted in various print issues.

Dirty and clogged anilox rollers will impact your print quality

Incorrectly maintaining your anilox rollers has huge cost implications for your business, through print rejects, production down-time, unnecessary re-runs of print jobs and wasted materials.

Understanding the correct care and maintenance for your anilox rollers, will pay dividends to your business performance.
