    Cold foil, UV and conventional adhesive

    Hey guys! Toyo is good, but have found more universal results with INX 3020HT. Once in this cold foil game you will find some consumables work better than others for different types of work. Screens, solids, vignettes, and synthetic stocks. The right blanket is KEY as well. Chevalier, I...

    Soft Touch coating doesn't adhere / set

    You need to add cross link to the coating. Ask your vendor. Even with that it will take a while to dry. I replied to a similar post.

    Soft Touch coating doesn't adhere / set

    Soft touch sometimes requires a cross linker that helps set up faster. Ask your vendor for this. This cross link does cut back the soft feel a bit but will help lock up faster on heavy ink coverage jobs. They do not manufacture the coating with this in it because it will ruin the coating in a...

    UV/Conventional/Hybrid Inks. Blankets? Photopolymer?

    Hopefully it gets denied, LOL! Your pressman are going to love you for having them try that. If your Dry trapping that lamp will chew right through that material. Most swelling issues come from lamp exposure and ink. Lamp is the main source. If the units dont have sheilding or the position is...

    TOYO Ink , Sales and Service question?

    I would agree that most of the ink companies have no real support like this. Yet, when we were with Toyo, our rep was always willing to get his hands dirty and he did service our account in that matter. Also now that I have moved on to a smaller ink company they to aswell will work with us when...

    UV white opaque coatings

    Good luck. Through the coater a UV FLexo white can be ran. You would need a speacial engraved anilox for this. And the results still may not be good enough. Then the fun part is trying to clean the coating pump system good enough to run normal coating. If you have to go this route i would...

    Lenticular troubleshooting

    Well if you had any experience on a press you would know that a Komori dampening unit is much different than a Heidelberg. Also that a Komori dampening system dose leave tall tale signs of certain dry up patterns. So for an inexperienced pencil pushing man like your self, I wouldn't expect you...
