The plate solvent is a critical element to consistent plate quality. We recommend performing periodic tests of your distilled ECOWASH using the ECOWASH Calibration kit. The kit is an essential Quality Control tool that allows you to maintain your solvent in perfect balance over time. The ECOWASH add-back calculator indicates how much additives, if any, are required to keep your product in optimal working condition.
