High performance and VOC-free fountain solutions
for low and high-speed Web Offset Printing
Printing Precision is Paramount
In the newsprint business, nothing is more important than crisp, clear imagery and text. But without the protection of the fountain solution film, ink quickly spreads from image areas to non-image areas. Not only does this cause smudging, but you also need to stop the printing process to clean the plates. You need an effective fountain solution to ensure your non-image areas remain free of unwanted ink, without increasing the need for water or disrupting ink pH.
Ink Only Where You Want It
We created an industry-leading fountain solution that preserves the clarity of your printing. It keeps ink at a neutral pH and offers strong plate protection with no gumming-up necessary, all while using less water to maintain ink-water balance and prevent emulsification. The result is improved ink, web and folder control, fan out, and ultimately much lower operating chemical costs.
