CPS leads the way at EcoPrint 2012
CPS has shown the way forward to a more sustainable screen printing industry by sharing its developments and discoveries at EcoPrint 2012, which took place in Berlin during September. CPS, the technology pioneers in safer and more environmentally friendly screen chemicals, presented a range of solutions and seminars at the event, which focuses on building sustainability in the printing trade.
Among the innovative CPS products showcased at the event was CPS Screen Opener 511, a hazard-label-free, fast-evaporating on-press screen cleaner that can deal with difficult to clean industrial and textile screen inks and complies with the latest EU directives for a flash point above 400C. Also on show was CPS Bio Plus Screen Wash G, which delivers high cleaning performance with a low toxicity to aquatic life and is approved to the strictest standards of the Danish Environmental Protection Agency.
In addition to presenting its products, CPS offered valuable advice to help printers achieve sustainable, cost-effective printing in the form of a presentation by CPS Commercial Manager Simon Jones. The seminar debunked the myth that safer products are either less effective or more expensive than traditional cleaning products and explained how better alternatives to petrochemical derivatives can result in more cost-effective production processes.
“CPS’ role in reducing costs for screen printers is to reduce their reliance on hydrocarbon-based cleaners,” Simon explained, “and by finding alternative sustainable sources - using concentrates, for example - we can actually reduce costs for printers”.
CPS has led the way in the environmentally progressive manufacture of screen printing solutions since the company was launched in 1982. The company was the first in the world to market a range of hazard label-free solutions for pre and post press screen applications and has remained a leader in the sector.
