I'm looking for an effective (yet relatively EHS benign) blanket & roller
cleaner for UV Waterless Inks (used on a CD ROM Kammann Offset Press).

Currently, IPA is being used with unsatisfactory cleaning results (it leaves
a residue). One cleaner that was recommended to us (by the ink vendor)
causes the rollers to swell.

Ideas/suggestions/opinions/vendors would be appreciated. Thanks!
