  • Need a new 4 color process ink, any suggestions??

    Hi, we currently have a
    Heidelberg GTO 52-2 w. direct continuous dampening system(no circ tank or alcohol)
    Heidelberg MOZP 25" 2 color w. cloth dampeners(1 cloth, 1 rubber form) and a circ system

    We were using Lotus Plus ink from Heidelberg and it worked well for us but is no longer available. Have been trying Hostman Rapida series but have huge drying problems, especially with the Magenta and Yellow. Jobs are picking and not drying.

    Just tried a sample of Vanson Quickson series and it seems to work alright. I'm told its fairly expensive though.
    My shop is in Canada, any other suggestions??? I'd appreciate it,
    Thanks

    Would you try a Soy Base ink? I can provide samples and testimonials, it is very good (moderate priced) ink and most who have tried it now buy it. Email me and I'll arrange shipment to try info@pressmanspride.com

      Are you referring to the Rapida optima (1765) series, or the Rapida from the Inkcredible series? Just curious.

          I would recomend ZipSet ink. The pigment level is strong, the water pick level and the drying is excellent. Price is good also. Very low misting also.
          Just google ZIPSET INK.

          Good Luck

            Thanks, i'm trying the Vanson Quickson series right now. So far its working good, very little window framing, ink not emulsifying in dampener rollers, seems to dry and set really quickly. Also received a sample of Saphira, from Heidelberg, haven't tested it yet
