DTF Cleaning Solutions and SuppliesOur industry-leading cleaning and maintenance solutions are important tools in any successful Direct to Film business or environment - for small hobby users and large volume printers alike. DTF Cleaning solutions are for cleaning or flushing. DTF Capping Solutions are for, as the name suggests, wet capping as well as for short-term maintenance. DTF Maintenance solution is for long term maintenance (think vacation mode). And the de-plasticizing solution is a magic dried ink degunking solution. See at the bottom of the page for the usage/indications for each of these specialty DTF ™ solutions, which are just as important for how are they used, but also for how they should not be used.
CLEANING SOLUTION: For flushing of printheads. This solution is for use in resolving minor clogs. Flush your print-heads with this solution (if your system is damper/CIS based), or fill it into "cleaning cartridges" and run up to 3 cleaning cycles with those cartridges (if your system is cartridge based). Do not use for wet capping.
XTREME CLEANING SOLUTION: For flushing of ink tubing, or to unclog stubborn clogs in printheads. This solution is for use in resolving stubborn/extreme clogs, or to flush out inks from ink tubing (such as if you want to change out inks). Flush your print-heads with this solution (if your system is damper/CIS based) or fill it into "cleaning cartridges" and run up to 3 cleaning cycles with those cartridges (if your system is cartridge based). Do not use for wet capping.
CAPPING SOLUTION: For printhead wet capping. This solution is for wet capping & short-term maintenance - to be used for saturating the printhead resting cap on the capping station at the end of the day, and not intended to be used as a cleaning or unclogging solution (use the Cleaning Solution or Xtreme Cleaning Solution for resolving clogs/cleaning purposes). For long-term maintenance (such as when you're going on vacation), use the Maintenance Solution instead.
MAINTENANCE SOLUTION: For printhead maintenance (Vacation Mode). This solution is to keep your printheads lubricated and to preserve them in the condition they currently are in. Before using this solution you should ensure that your printheads are working properly with no clogs or gaps on nozzle tests. NOTE: This maintenance solution does NOT clean or unclog your printhead (use the Cleaning Solution or Xtreme Cleaning Solution for those purposes).
DE-PLASTICIZING SOLUTION: Apply with cleaning swabs to ink that has solidified around your printhead, capping station, or on the wiper blade. DO NOT insert this solution into the capping station or into your printhead channels.
LAST CHANCE SOLUTION: When everything else fails, use this solution as a LAST CHANCE effort to unclog the most stubborn of print head clogs! DO NOT USE for wet capping. DO NOT LEAVE in the printhead (run a cleaning with regular DTFPRO cleaning solution after use).
