RADTECH International has been promoting th use of UV and EB cured coatings, inks and adhesives as a Pollution Prevention technology which virtually eliminates VOC and HAP. We have been aware that these materials would require cleaners equally low in VOC and HAP if we are to realize the full potential of the technology. We are pleased to report that we have now located such a cleaner which seems to offer other advantages in addition to very low VOC content. This material, called Yellow Magic, appears to be equally effective in cleaning water-based inks and coatings. We thought some of our colleagues on the listserve would also be interested in such a material. A description and source information is herewith referred. Alexander Ross. Ph.D. Government Affairs Director RadTech International, NA 400 N.

Yellow Magic is a water-based product and contains only 2.2% voc's (22g/l, or 0.18 lbs./gallon). Yellow Magic has a "0" flammability rating; there is no flash below 210F at which point it boils away (when used as a spray & wipe, the rag does not become a hazmat). also, Yellow Magic, by itself, requires no ppe to use. Yellow Magic cleans everything: anilox rollers, doctor blades, metering rollers, uv ink pans, sidewalls, press frames,everything! it will also clean water-based inks as well. Yelow Magic can be used in any ultra-sonic cleaning machine and it generally cuts the cleaning cycle time almost in half. this product is not intended to clean uv adhesive systems. however, Yellow magic does help clean the adhesive from sticky-backed tape. we are also coming to market with "hands'afe", a water-based hand cleaner for the printing industry. the printing industry has been cleaning hands with two types of products: petroleum-based or high alkaline hand soaps. the petroleum-based hand cleaners are absorbed through the skin, possibly taking hazardous ingredients in inks with it. the high alkaline cleaners dry-out skin and some people may break-out in rashes. "hands'afe" is neither of these, making it a safer alternative, while still quickly and easily cleaning inks, grease, etc. off of hands and skin. for free sample or more information on our products, contact; mark bass mbass33366@aol.com or telephone us @ 773.638.6900
