Printing inks and varnishes

____________________________________

 

Inks are grouped into many families that can be categorized by the printing processes.

 

Offset

Cold set

Quick set

Heat set

 

 

Heliography, Flexograhpy, Typography

Solvent-based or water-based liquid inks with viscosities from 10 mPa/s to 100 mPa/s

 

 

Screen printing

Inks similar to inks for Flexography

 

 

Pad printing

The choice of a cleaning, washing or de-icing solvent will mainly depend on the type of ink used, cellulosic, nitro cellulosic, vinyl PVA, PVB, PVC, polyurethane, acrylic, epoxy, polyester, Plastisol.

 

During printing, it is necessary to clean the inked parts of the machine or the press, as well as the cleaning of impurities embedded in the blankets, cylinders, and rollers.

In addition, when production is stopped for changing settings, plates, or platemaking, de-icing of blankets in offset and the cleaning of inkwells.

Even if the installations are equipped with automatic cleaning machines, the finishing is always done manually with a cloth.

 

There is an exclusion list of prohibited chemicals (exclusion list) in the formulation or application of inks which can be found at

www.eupia.org

 

The ink family is extended to include special inks

  • Hybrid sulfo-polyester/acrylic inks, latex emulsions with charges stabilized by electrostatic or steric effect
  • Hot melts or thermo-fusible inks
  • Metallic, reflective inks
  • Scented inks (micro-encapsulation of perfumes)
  • Thermo-chromic inks
  • Scratchable inks
  • Recyclable inks
  • Inks for shrinkable media
  • “Decoration” inks
  • Slate inks
  • Phosphorescent, fluorescent inks
  • Reactive inks, with alcohol, cold water, hot water, black light, red filter, encryption
  • Bleeding ink
  • Sublimable inks
