GRAPHIC ARTS - PRESSROOM CHEMICALS

The graphic arts industry was one of the first market segments to apply ESTISOL and ESTISURF specialty products from Esti Chem. Great technical performance and an attractive environmental profile were important reasons for this success. We offer ester solvents, surfactants, corrosion inhibitors and silicone oil free defoamers applied as formulation components in cleaners and auxiliary products applied in the lithographic, UV, flexo and screen printing industries.

Esti Chem has extensive knowledge about the formulation of ink cleaners – please contact us to discuss your specific projects. 

Esti Chem is a member of FOGRA.
