“A Giant Improvement of AL Fount”
Morohoshi ALF-Fount (Alcohol Free) is specially designed for CTP, positive or negative plate.
It could also be use on web machine.
ALF-Fount gives very good wetting ability on plates optimizing perfect prints when use. ALF-Fount contains humectants to prevent premature drying of printing plate during brief shutdowns and preserves the film forming properties.
ALF-Fount also contains biocides to keep the fount system free from mould, sequestrants to counteract the effects or dissolved calcium, corrosion inhibitors to protect the printing plate and press equipment, and anti-foaming agents to reduce or remove mechanical and chemical foam.
However, if metallic ink or very special ink are use on press, we still recommend using a small percentage of alcohol especially on big solid print area.
The gradual reduction of alcohol in the fountain solution was the principle aim for an environment green atmosphere, taking away (fire hazard) and smell in the pressroom.
Better Ink SETTING
- Better DOT
- Better GLOSS
- Better DENSITY
- Better RUB
Direction to use:
Add only 2% – 3% of ALF-Fountain to water to have a working pH of 5 – 5.3

Morohoshi Al-Fount is a one-step alcohol replacement fountain solution designed for Sheet-fed, Coldset and Heatset webs. Also, for different press speeds and new plate technology. Al-Fount not only produces good wetting but creates a more viscous film of water on the plate. Provides a low dynamic surface tension thus reassuring reduced water setting.
Al-Fount contains humectants to prevent premature drying of the printing plate during brief shutdowns and preserves the film forming properties.

- For Sheet-fed and Web presses
- Safer as compared to other fountain solutions
- Zero phosphate formula for Heatset Web presses
- Creates good wetting and viscosity on the plate
- Keep reverses screens and halftones sharp
Directions for use:
To use as an alcohol replacement, start with a dosage of 30mls per litre, increasing by 10mls per litre if more wetting is needed. If a high dose is required, it may indicate the need for Al-Fount in a hard water version.
