Product Description

Flexo-stat is the antistatic additive for petroleum based washout solvents. Flexo-Stat helps control the dissipation of static electricity and ensure obligations under Atex regulations are observed.

All the C.K. Flexo washout solvents contain Flexo-Stat when supplied but this should also be added to solvent reclaimed in house by the user.

Technical data sheet is available.
Flexi-Wipe Flexi-wipe is a very fast drying wipe solution for use on the back of polymer plates after processing, and can be used for many other print applications where fast drying is essential.


For users of washout solvents that carry out in house reclamation of the solvent, C.K.Chemicals provides a "free" lab testing service to monitor the on-going quality and balance of the solvent after reclamation. A test report and solvent control advice will be supplied. It is recommended that this facility is utilised and samples submitted approx every 10 reclamation cycles.
