TECH EIGHT MX FLUSH?

Post by stitch-up » Tue Jan 23, 2018 11:14 pm

What is it?

I found two bottles of this stuff in my cupboard tonight! I vaguely recollect purchasing it but don't remember what for!!

I think it's an aggressive flushing fluid and from memory, I believe it 'melts' plastic!!

Can anyone tell me what it is and how it should be used?

Thanks

Can you upload a photo of the bottle? I can then try and figure out which machine it is for.

I think I have the answer :)

Tech Eight was a machine servicing/maintenance company.
General flush can be used for various things printer related. We kept bottles of flush for end of week general clean up of solvent on parts of the printer etc.
also, lets say we were closing for the Christmas break, you would flush the the solvent inks in the machine to prevent them turning to jelly and clogging pipes and heads etc however, that, from memory, was flush carts.

Sounds right, just haven't come across the name of the flush before.
