For Color Changes and Rollers:
Remove the plate prior to cleaning the rollers. Apply a thin bead to the feed roller and idle the press for a few minutes. Clean up as usual. Thoroughly remove all Putz Pomade during clean-up.

For Blankets:
Apply Putz Pomade to a cleaning pad. Wipe the blanket in a circular motion and clean up as usual.

For OPC Drums:
Apply Putz Pomade Liquid Flow to a lint-free cloth and wipe Putz on the drum to remove toner particles.

Use a dampened and soft lint-free cloth to remove the Putz and run about 50 sheets to prepare the unit for printing (it is important not to use an excessive amount of water to remove Putz as it can get inside the end seams of the drum). Or completely remove all the Putz product with a soft, lint-free cloth before printing.
