Enpurex Anilox Cleaning Solutions
A Brief History
Enpurex was developed in Leipzig, Germany by a small start-up company called Bubbles and Beyond. Enpurex was developed from a gel which was made to remove graffiti from trains. CCL Labels Germany began ordering this graffiti remover to clean their aniloxs. Consequently Bubbles & Beyond learnt about Anilox Rollers and together with CCL Labels Germany, developed the most effective and unique anilox cleaner on the market, namely Enpurex.

How it Works
Ink and contaminates are gently lifted and efficiently detached. Enpurex provides a safe, physically active, deep cleaning principle unlike any other.
Enpurex works physically rather than chemically. It does not dissolve or corrode the ink but rather breaks up the ink. The molecules in the fluid are constantly moving, changing shape and size (similar to a lava lamp). The continuous restructuring movement of the molecules results in a “micro-earthquake” dislodging ink and contaminates. After the cleaning process, the lifted particles can then be easily wiped away with a wet cloth. This will deactivate and cease the molecular cleaning action of the fluid.
It is important however that in order for Enpurex to work effectively the surface and application sponge is dry as water and alcohol deactivates the cleaning process of the fluid.
Below is a short video of how it works
Simply spray Enpurex onto the SurfiMax micropore sponge and cover the surface to be cleaned (anilox roller, rubber roller or impressions roller etc.) with Enpurex. Allow the deep cleaning reaction to take place for 1-5 minutes. Afterwards wipe off the ink or dirt using as wet cloth/rag to thoroughly clean the surface and stop the reaction of Enpurex. If the anilox is extremely dirty reapplication may be necessary. However, Regular use of Enpurex 95 Plus will require only 1 application.
