Blanket wash technology study. 1994.
TURI Technical Report No. 16. This Blanket Wash Technology Study (BWTS) provides comparative information on a group of commercially available blanket washes commonly used in sheetfed offset lithography. The study was conducted by the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, in cooperation with the Printing Industries of New England (PINE) and the Graphic Arts Technical Foundation (GAIT). The BWTS is designed to evaluate functional performance as well as environmental, health, and safety characteristics of selected blanket washes and to make this information available to printers. The Institute’s primary objective in conducting this study is to provide information to printers that will assist them in their toxics use reduction (TUR) efforts. Toxics use reduction gives printers the opportunity to reduce occupational hazards and environmental pollution without compromising competitive advantage.File Name: techreport16.pdf
