RE: vendor list 9/5/00 Sherry: Alternative solvents may be obtained for printers from a number of sources. Among the graphic arts manufacturers, look at Prisco (Printers Service); Anchor Chemical; Siebert, Inc.; Allied Chemical; Rycoline Products, Inc.; Varn Products Co. Also, consider contacting a chemical blender in the printer's locality. They would be able to blend a low vapor pressure cleaning solvent (65% aliphatic, 30% aromatic, the balance surfactants and 2-3% DPM is a common blend). A local blender can often provide a cleaning solvent at less cost than one of the national brands. The next level of alternative cleaning solvents are those that include the low VOC content solvents. These are more difficult to work with generally. For this reason, I would opt for the traditional solvents having a low vapor pressure. This characteristic of low vapor pressure will lower evaporation rate and will dramatically improve the facility's indoor air quality. Hope this gets you pointed in the right direction. Jeff
