PARTS WASHER GSG introduces the CRC SmartWasher 28, a nontoxic alternative for cleaning screen printing tools. The system uses the process of bioremediation to break down organic compounds like plastisol ink and emulsions, while microbes suspended in the unit's fluid are converted into water and carbon dioxide. The fluid remains clean and usable, while hazardous waste becomes a nonissue. The system consists of an impact-resistant washing unit with a flexible nozzle, brush, and special microbe-impregnated filters that work in conjunction with the cleaning fluid. The system has a 28"-wide sink and a front-mounted electronic control panel with a knee switch. There are no service contracts and filters are user-change- able without tools. The machine is also available in a 23" model.

The stabilizer reportedly supports free- standing lace with only one layer and works well with delicate fabrics like silk and organza. It also has pressure-adhesive backing for hoopless applications. The stabilizer softens when it is washed, so if stiff support is desired, it can be washed less frequently or less vigorously.

The nontoxic ink disappears when exposed to air, but the time it takes depends on writing pressure, material, temperature, and humidity. It also disappears when it makes contact with water. The pens are offered in either pink or violet.
