Technical data and working advice
Only water should be used to reduce Aqua inks as other solvents may seriously effect the performance properties of the Inks.
Roller & Stereos:
Aqua is based on water so all rubber stereos and polymer plate are safely used. The only restriction on rollers is that mild steel should be avoided as this is liable to rust.
Water is quite satisfactory for washing up Aqua Inks. However if the Inks are allowed to dry fully on rollers & stereo, glycol either solvent, a mild alkaline solution or a specialist wash may be necessary.
Aqua Inks are avaliable in range of base colours which are intended for use as a comprehensive blending scheme.
Although Aqua Inks are water soluble, they give a dry print, which is sufficiently water resistant for normal applications.
Aqua Inks contain a large proportion of water, it should not be stored in freeze temperature.
