APS-404

Alcohol Substitute

A replacement for alcohol in lithography for those printers using unbaked positive plate emulsions, this product is formulated to minimize damage to the plate's image area during use. Formulas of this type may increase the viscosity of the fountain solution allowing better delivery of fountain solution through many continuous dampening systems. The strong humectant effect provided should help keep dampening systems and blankets cleaner during use than more conventional alcohol replacement formulations. 

Features: Low odor. Will not damage plate emulsions. Compatible with all fountain solutions.

All Star HL 200

One Step with Hydro Lube Additive

Not only reduces the dynamic surface tension to low 30's (flattening out fount/water on non-image areas) it thickens and slows fount/water evaporation from non-image areas allowing plates to stay wet longer to assure fast start ups with little waste.
