    Fountain solution formula suggestion for DotWorks Unicorn plates, please.

    Representation from Dotworks says these start-up differently than your current plate. Run the plate dry prior to dropping the forms. The ink removes the image on these plates not the fount. Also DOP plates are much more calcium sensitive, so do a thorough roller clean and decal. Clean damp...

    Has Covid killed the business card?

    The majority of shops I go in these days, the pressroom manager doesn't even have a card to give me. The very people who should be showcasing their printing ability and creativity. Says a lot.

    I appreciate and fully respect your thoughts on the fine Bottcher products. Up until about four years ago I would concur with your endorsement. I feel Calcium Slayer & Flush is the finest roller cleaner/deglazer/decalcifier/ roller conditioner/ roller wash that has ever been. I also like...

None to offer except real results, on the spot measurements, comments, testimonials, feedback. etc. Have been promised data, feedback, etc., from shops and corporations that I have given product to, demoed for, advised, and instructed. Very little has materialized. I crave the data and...

    Yes, I am. I am the co-creator of it. I sell it to distributors. On this forum I only speak of it when people seek a solution. It solves problems for offset printers and that's what this forum is for, I believe. All printers, of course, but I am offset focused.

    The Febo and Calcium Fix are not effective enough, Curiosity. Trust me. No wash is going to do what it is capable until after The Slayer. Most of the people on here are not even aware of the product so they don't get how awesome it is. You will soon know.

    Curiosity, You'll be fine. Wait until The Slayer arrives. After using it, the wash will do its job much better. No matter what wash you use now, it will not get the calcium out, because calcium is not water or solvent soluble, so it really can't get much else out. Trapped in your rollers right...

    Chris, any photos to share ? How are they not cleaned as you feel they should be ? Ink stains ? Calcium build-up ? Paper left in rollers ? Understand that much "debris" in your rollers is NOT water or solvent soluble, so the thorough cleanings we desire are not always possible with the products...

    Processor Less Plates

    Hello Ray As you know, calcium contamination is a MAJOR issue facing DOP plates. Blinding and excessive plate wear are directly tied to the calcium effect. If you are the SoCal Ray I think you are, my associate Paul J. contacted you awhile back because you expressed interest on LinkedIn in...

    Both are alcohol subs. APA is designed for use with continuous dampening systems and with FC1000 fount. Both are private label products. IDK who makes the ABDick stuff or the technical requirements. Though never mandatory and feel free to do as you please, but most subs are designed to be used...
