    Cinetech UK have over 40 years of experience operating, upgrading and repairing all types of film cleaning equipment, across every manufacturer and solvent type.


    Following the recent bankruptcy of RTI, the dominant film cleaner manufacturer, there have been considerable issues obtaining spare parts and service support for existing RTI film cleaners in the marketplace.


    Following numerous client requests, and a pre-order for 3 units, the team of Cinetech engineers embarked on the design and manufacture of a film cleaner that has revolutionary and never seen before features.


    Our cleaner utilises a film cleaning solvent that is, in our opinion, the most suitable choice for cleaning performance and cost efficiency, now and into the future.


     No special installation team required. Our machine has been designed with intuitive and straightforward interface, it is a pure plug-and-play machine with factory support for commissioning via video call if required.


    Utilising Isopar® G solvent, which has a cleaning performance rated as ‘excellent’ as opposed to HFE that is rated as ‘adequate’, isopropyl alcohol that is flammable, absorbs water and can dry film excessively, and perchloroethylene that is a known ODP, greenhouse gas and carcinogen.
