PCD: Where did the idea for coming up with Wheel-eez come from?
Over the years, CORK earned a reputation for providing innovative solutions to challenging printers’ problems. Cork was asked for a safer cleaning product for use on their multi-million dollar printing presses. Conventional UV press wash products had very high flammability, making press cleaning the most hazardous part of a job.
The solution had to be able to dissolve dried-in coatings, but it also had to be non-corrosive to protect the customers’ presses. To solve the cleaning problem, Cork developed a water-based wash for UV coatings called Cork-Clean™. It greatly reduced the odor, toxicity, and flammability hazards associated with solvent-based cleaning products while protecting the presses.
Cork recognized that vehicle owners and specifically, car wash owners needed a safe, effective alternative to harsh caustic based cleaners that would remove brake dust, road grime and stubborn deposits from wheels while protecting the other metal on the vehicle, fixtures and floorings, the people who apply it as well as the environment. Using Cork-Clean™ as a starting point, Cork developed Wheel-eez.
