Use a solid hatch pattern.  Set it to back, and put the color 255.  This has worked for me before wipeouts.

What did you have for settings in the CTB file for 255?

255 will print black normally unless you go out of your way to do otherwise.  I use an RGB color to do so.  254,254,254 usually.  RBG colors ignore CTBs so you'd be safe.  I do that for company logos too where we actually need color.  Better than the boss going and turning random ACI entries into a color-plot and saving it locally only... think I finally broke him of that, though, when I showed him how easy it was to pick a RGB color.

I think it was set to use object color.

Edit:  Attached an example.  There is a hatch patter sent to back, and color 255.  In my ctb file I set it to 'use object color'.  In the preview it looks a little gray, but as you can see it prints white.
