H2O Emulsion has been specially formulated for application via the ink duct on sheet-fed machines. The coating dries by a combination of penetration and evaporation. Instantaneous drying could be achieved with the use of hot air knives or IR lamps within 15 minutes.
Why H2O Emulsion?
- Fast drying, allowing fast turnover
- Better gloss
- Minimise set off
- Excellent scuff – no blocking problem
- Good heat resistance
- Low odour
- Less spray powders
- Application to sheet-fed and heatset web
- No coating unit required
Spot application can be made by either stripping the blanket or using a photo polymer relief plate. Make sure the stripped or packed blanket clearance must be maintained at least 3 – 5mm to avoid build-up of coating on the impression.
