Economical, efficient & user friendly

The transportation system pulls the sticky plate into the wash section. The sticky plate first passes through a flushing section where Polywash detergent is sprayed onto the printing plates. The detergent then begins to dissolve the ink on the printing plate. The next section comprises a very soft, fine haired brush which cleans the plate. Then a sponge roll starts to dry the plates and the in-line drying section finishes the process with hot air. The sticky plate will emerge from the machine with perfectly clean, undamaged and dry printing plates.

Sustainable & eco-friendly

The quantity of Polywash liquids used by the machine is roughly five times less when compared to manual washing. The machine is constantly re-using the liquid, while the cleaning agent slowly evaporates, making the plate cleaner very friendly to the environment. Each 25 litre can (6.6 gallon) washes more than 500 M2 (5500sq ft) of printing plates.

Global maintenance & support

As part of our commitment to help you maintain and optimize the life cycle management of your Polymount Plate Cleaner, you can count on the products, services, and technical support of Polymount worldwide.

ROI is only a matter of months

In around seven minutes your plates are cleaned and dried automatically. The cost per M2 to clean plates is only € 0.50 (or € 0.05 per square foot). No manual cleaning can equal the economics of this. This cost is based on the usage of the cleaning liquid, (5cl per M2, or 2fl oz per 12 sq.ft) . Automated plate cleaning is not just good for your profitability; it is also good for the environment and for the people having to clean the plates. It is also a sustainable, economical and very efficient solution to optimize the reuse of plates.

Automatically cleans and dries dirty plates

After printing, you mount your dirty printingplates on the Sticky Plate. When the plates are mounted, you insert them into the machine and a transport system will run the plate through the machine, the wash / dry program begins and your plates will come out clean, dry and ready for re-use. The Sticky plate is permanent adhesive and will hold your plates over and over again.
