  • waterbased coating

    we are printing high ink coverage cmyk jobs on one of client which requires us to cure or allow drying of the printed sheets for 3 to 4 days. and we sometimes encounter color shifts after drying. I tried applying some waterbased varnish to accelerate curing time and lessen color shifts but I need to justify that the cost of additional inline varnish will not increase the price of our process. please help giving reasons how to justify this additional process or will there be better alternatives for this drying and color-shifting issues. thanks

    I'm guessing that you are using an ink with dryer retarders (sta-open) in it. If so, that is the problem.

      Just so I'm clear, its the 4/c process (CMYK) that is shifting color, not any spot (PMS) colors.
      80% of dry-back or dry-down occurs within first 30 min.
      Typical dry-back amounts are -0.03C, -0.05M, -0.01Y, -0.15K.
      Are you sure the color is shifting from drying and it's not color variation from during the press run?
      Can you measure the dry-back with Delta E, before vs. after?
