What is PiezoFlush®?
For most third party ink companies, a flush fluid is a simple task. They take clear ink base and package it. We set out on a different mission. Our goal was to create a solution that was strong enough to clean dried print heads and yet safe enough to use as a long-term storage solution for print heads. Because we produce Piezography inks which have seven shades and are often used in printers with eight or more ink positions, we needed to supply an eighth “ink”. Because the eighth ink is not actually printed, it needed to have some unique properties that would allow it to remain in a large format or desktop printer potentially for a year or more. PiezoFlush is that solution. We stained it pink with some dye so that users could actually see it when it is printed during nozzle check tests.
PiezoFlush is the strongest and the safest and the most effective flush, storage and cleaning fluid that you can buy.
PiezoFlush is a premium product and is manufactured at a cost significantly higher then competing products.
How it's used
In its simplest form, PiezoFlush can be used as a cleaning fluid that is a safer alternative to ammonia, simple green, windex and other home-made concoctions. PiezoFlush can not harm a print head. The same can not be said for ammonia based cleaning fluids such as Windex which can interact with the copper components of print heads. PiezoFlush can be safely injected into print heads with our PiezoFlush cleaning kit. For those who like to clean the bottom of the print heads, it can be safely used with our recommended methods. You can see a complete cleaning of a desktop printer in this video. For Roland printers which have a cleaning compartment for swabbing the underneath of the print heads - PiezoFlush is a safe alternative to the more expensive OEM solution.
Put in refillable cartridges, PiezoFlush can be used to both clean out ink lines, dampers and print heads or to fill the same with long term storage fluid.
One of the best uses of PiezoFlush is to take an extra set of refillable carts and fill them with PiezoFlush. These carts can then be used to flush the printer so that the printer can be stored safely for a few weeks or a few months. Users have reported that printers stored this way with PiezoFlush have been able to be revitalized even after one years rest. Many colleges and universities as well as studios with fleets of printers use PiezoFlush periodically to maintain their printers to peak condition. For these customers, we provide PiezoFlush by the gallon.
