Ink Blaster OS™ Cost Comparison
In addition to employee safety and product effectiveness, there are many things to consider when evaluating chemical costs. For this cost comparison example, we will use Ink Blaster OS vs. Acetone, MEK and Methylene Chloride.
Evaporation Rate – Ink Blaster OS evaporate 237 times slower than Acetone and MEK and 600 times slower than Methylene Chloride. This slow evaporation rate allows you to use all of the Ink Blaster OS that you purchase whereas, with the other products, a significant amount of product is constantly being evaporated into the atmosphere.
Consumption Ratio – the consumption ratio of Acetone & MEK to Ink Blaster OS is 5:1; this means: for every 5 drums of Acetone & MEK, you will purchase only one drum of Ink Blaster OS. In addition, you will generate less hazardous waste by using Ink Blaster OS.
Recyclable via Vacuum Distillation – Spent Ink Blaster OS can be recycled and you can obtain nearly 75% back. You will generate less waste and purchase less product.
Resin Loading – Ink Blaster OS can hold up to 35% resin (ink & adhesive) loading, before it becomes saturated. Acetone & MEK holds up to 8% resin loading. (The higher the resin loading, the longer the shelf life.)
Non-Flammable – Ink Blaster OS is non-Flammable (Flash Point: 169 Degrees F); where Acetone & MEK is highly flammable (Flash Point: -2 Degrees F). This means, with Ink Blaster OS, your operation will never go on fire, your workers will never be harmed due to high potential fire and harmful fumes and best of all, your insurance premium will be reduced significantly and the OSHA Agency will not impose any heavy fines.
Multi-Purpose Product – Ink Blaster OS is a multipurpose resin remover for all your cleaning applications.
Environmentally Safe – Ink Blaster OS is a non-HAPs, non-flammable, reduced VOC, non-hazardous resin remover.
