Re: Roller and Platen Washes
What's a typewriter?
The Printers's National Environmental Assistance Center has several good
publications on alternative blanket washes for the printing industry,
including a detailed study by the EPA entitled Cleaner Technology
Substitutes Assesment: Lithographic Blanket Washes.
Might be a good place to start.

I am working with a local business that
performs repairs on typewriters. They are looking for an
alternative solvent to remove ink from the typewriter's platens and
roller. They are currently using a solvent that is 50%
perchloroethylene and @40% aliphatic solvent.
I have conducted some research using SAGE and
the P2 tech archives. However, I have not located any
recommendations specific to this application. Any recommendations
or sources of information is greatly appreciated.
