Policrom Roller Lube

(High Viscosity Anti-Friction Compound)

 

Product Need and Usage:

Press units not in use require lubrication to prevent heat build-up and deterioration of the ink train rollers. Best results are achieved by using a small amount of high viscosity grease that will remain in the roller train for an extended period of time.

 

Policrom Roller Lube is a specially formulated, high viscosity anti-friction compound for use on non-printing “dead units." It is compatible with buna-nitrile, urethane and composite compound rubber rollers. Policrom Roller Lube will protect ink rollers from friction and heat build-up that can damage the roller surface. Policrom Roller Lube is not recommended for use on EPDM rollers.

 

Features:

  • Prevents heat build-up from friction.
  • High viscosity, long lasting formula.
  • Compatible on Buna-N, Urethane and composite compounds.
  • Suitable for sheetfed and high speed web.

Policrom Rubber Revitalizer

 

Product Need and Usage:

Rubber surfaces on blankets and rollers accumulate contamination from ink, paper, and cleaning solutions. Ink resins and fillers, paper coating, calcium and surfactants used in cleaning compounds can build up on roller surfaces, creating a hard glaze and drastically affect the lithographic properties of the rubber. Regular use of Policrom Rubber Revitalizer will keep rollers and blankets in like new condition and can significantly improve roller and blanket life.

 

Policrom Rubber Revitalizer is a blend of special cleaners and anti-oxidants proven to be an effective rubber surface rejuvenator on bunanitrile, EPDM and composite roller and blanket compounds. Used as part of a regular maintenance program, rollers will have improved
ink/water transfer and extended roller life. Blankets will have improved performance and reduced piling build-up.

 

Features:

  • Conditions rubber surfaces and returns rollers and blankets to like new condition.
  • Improves ink transfer.
  • Removes surface contaminants.
  • Extends roller and blanket life.
  • User-friendly and convenient to use.
