Böttcher manufactures and supplies a full range of press chemistry perfectly adapted to the requirements of users, presses and the environment.

Printing blankets, rollers and impression cylinders in modern sheet-fed offset presses are cleaned by various types of automatic washing units. Böttcher washes and Printing aids are specifically designed for this purpose. They offer strong cleaning action and outstanding reliability and have been tested and approved by press manufacturers and have FOGRA certification.

Printing aids – Ideal for pressroom use.

During printing operations, deposits consisting of paper coating material, calcium, printing ink ingredients accumulate on press rollers. These deposits cause glazing of the roller surface, which in turn lead to poor ink transfer and inking roller blinding.
Böttcher recommend intensive weekly cleaning of rollers with special cleaning pastes and gels. This extends roller service life and ensures consistent print quality.
