INKREDIBLE

A Higly Advanced Technology Becomes a Brand

!NKREDIBLE is describing the way of production of the inks, respectively their pigments. The chromatic inks from those sets contain pigments that are manufactured using a particular technology.

Chromatic pigments are forming as fairly small particles in a wet, water-based environment, by composition of certain chemicals. After they are precipitated, they need to be separated from water and remaining unprocessed components by filtering and - looking at the conventional pigment production - subsequent drying.

During drying, the single pigment particles are loosing their distance due to the absence of the water, creating growingly large particles which have to be dispersed and crushed again, when grinding the dried pigment with the vehicle at high energy expense to make printing ink.

Drying pigment also requires a lot of energy. Following the !NKREDIBLE process, the drying step is skipped and special varnishes are mixed with the still wet, very fine particle pigment. The goal is to replace all water around the pigment by varnish and decant the water after it has separated on top of the new mixture.

Although this manufacturing technology also needs quite a bit of time, energy and experience, the benefits are omnibus:

  • energy is saved, lowering the carbon footprint of the ink
  • the pigment particles are homogenously fine
  • colours are vibrant and very intensive
  • pigments show excellent transparency

!NKREDIBLE REVOLUTION

The revolutionary heatset ink series

!NKREDIBLE REVOLUTION is the high-gloss formulation of the inks series family based on !NKREDIBLE printing-ink technology.
When the hubergroup introduced its HIT technology in the mid 1990s, the Group succeeded in generating printing inks that, thanks to the optimum coordination of the formulations and production processes, set the standard for the heatset sector over a period spanning some ten years.
The global expansion undergone by the hubergroup now allows it to rigorously pursue this path fur ther The systematic exchange of know-how and genuinely high level of cooperation practised bet ween the Group’s chemical and process engineers all around the world, together with innovative ideas on raw-material synthesis and on ink formulation, laid the perfect foundation for the new !NKIREDIBLE generation of printing inks, which takes full account of the continuous developments on the press side of the business and the increased demands with respect to process standardisation.
Special hard resins, pigments whose surface characteristics have been optimised and new produc tion technology form the basis of the !NKREDIBLE ink systems, which guarantee exceptional printing stability and fantastic results.
!NKREDIBLE technology inks fulfil all the demands the latest generation of high-speed printing pres ses make on printing inks, whether it be for jobs in which the quantity of ink transferred is low and the degree of ink emulsification is high or jobs with extreme requirements with regard to print contrast. The !NKREDIBLE heatset series guarantee optimum print results every time, in every situation.
Highly transparent and pure pigments enable us to satisfy the specifications of DIN ISO 2846-1 and! or 12 647-2, an also degree of variation in dot gain between the four process colours guarantees a neutral grey balance without dot loss in the production run.
REVOLUTION ¡s the name of the heatset series that meet all the demands made on heatset inks today. The inks’ high degree of gloss, in combination with colour-intensive, pure hues and ideal trapping characteristics, guarantees fantastic and highly impressive levels of con trast. The balanced quality of !NKREDIBLE REVOLUTION is available in two series, each with three different tack levels, specially formulated to suit the press configuration, length and output of the dryer unit and the type of job.
The inks of the H 50 series meet the high and varied demands of a wide spectrum of commer cially available substrates.
The H 20 series is an ink system that has been specially developed for substrates with a high level of oil absorption and correspondingly qualified drying characteristics.
The H 56 series unites the properties of the H 50 series with the properties required to meet the rub-resistance demands of mall-coated stocks.

Special Properties

  • Fast drying
  • Fantastic gloss
  • Good rub resistance
  • Good transfer from the blanket
  • Chromaticity coordinates in compliance with ISO 2846-1 and ISO 12647-2
  • Neutral grey balance
  • High fountain solution tolerance
  • Immediate adjustment of a stable ink/water balance
  • Excellent stability in the production run
  • Ideally suited to IPA-free printing

Application

The new REVOLUTION generation of heatset inks is particularly suitable for exceedingly high-gloss print jobs on coated and on absorbent and less glossy stocks and jobs that have to be conducted in compliance with DIN ISO 12647-2. It stands out thanks to its minimal level of dot gain and high fount solution tolerance.

Printing auxiliaries

REVOLUTION process inks are supplied ready to use. Should it become necessary, under exceptional circumstances, to adapt the process inks to special printing conditions, auxiliaries should be used which are compatible with the highly developed vehicle system: for reducing tack with substrates that are susceptible to picking, Print Oil 10 T 9998

!NKREDIBLE GOOD NEWS

The individual coldset offset inks

Application

The new web-offset coldset process inks for high-speed newspaper presses offer stable printing characteristics on all types of presses.

The full range of different inking systems, dampening systems and press speeds has been considered as well as all materials on press when developing these top performing inks.

Benefits

!NKREDIBLE GOOD NEWS is not simply an ink, but matched to individual requirements of a printing location. Receive the ink set tailored to the predefined requirements and rest in confidence to have no deviations from that specification.

Special Properties

  • Excellent printability and converting
  • Highest runability leading to maximum productivity
  • High degree of brilliance and colour strength
  • Outstanding ink/water-balance, even at high speed
  • Optimum flow characteristics for all inking systems
  • Minimal start-up waste thanks to fast runoff
  • Minimal piling on the blanket and cylinders
  • Very good setting characteristics on the substrate
  • Halftone reproduction with perfect dot definition
  • Smooth solids with consistently high print contrast
  • Very low level of set-off and thus perfect results in post print finishing
  • Minimal strike-through depending on grade of paper

Ink Series

GOOD NEWS inks offer long (L), medium (M) and short (S) flow versions for matching the requirements of the various inking systems. Anilox (A) and hybrid (H) inks are as well available as dry flow (DF) inks for waterless offset. Please contact our sales or service personnel to receive more information.

Packaging and Logistics

GOOD NEWS inks are available in hobbocks (buckets), drums and IBCs. In some areas the inks can be delivered in bulk tank vehicles. Please contact your local representative for identifying the best solution to your needs.

An electronic inventory and order system is also available upon request. After defining minimum stock levels and standard order quantities, there is no need left to worry about orders and deliveries.

INK Active Drier


Product Image

INK Active Drier

Ink additive for accelerating oxidative drying

Application

INK Active Drier is delivering oxygen when usually there is hardly any available, allowing normal drying times on poor or non-absorbent substrates.

With a reaction of water, oxygen is released inside of the ink film layer. The ink dries from the inside to the outside, faster than it would without additive.

Special Properties

  • Addition: 1-3% in weight
  • Decreases drying time on non-absorbent substrates noticeably
  • Improves scratch and scuff resistance of inks
  • Reduces waiting time until post print finishing
  • Lowers risk of marking in the pile

Your Benefits

Reducing drying times on poor or non-absorbent substrates is important for processing the printed matter in time. Drying times under challenging conditions can decrease as much as 50-80%. Still, please consider that even with adding INK Active Drier, drying to the core on a non-absorbent stock can sometimes take more than 48 hours.

Product Profile

Additives can produce opposite effect than desired, if not strictly used for the intended purpose and in prescribed concentration. All advice should be strictly followed. See the technical information for further instructions.
