Products

Sheet-fed conventional

RC661: gum-free fountain solution additive suitable for all types of dampening systems. With balanced pH for use in sheet-fed offset applications. Provides very good plate protection and maintains an excellent ink/water balance at reduced water feed settings. Available in 10 l, 20 l and 200 l.

RC63: gum-free buffered fountain solution with excellent wetting characteristics. Extremely suitable for use on small sheet-fed and business forms web offset presses. Minimizes paper waste by avoiding tone problems on small offset presses and assures fast start-up. Prevents build-up of ink on roller and blankets. Available in 10 l.

Prima FS303 SF: FOGRA-approved additive for printing with alcohol on sheet-fed presses. Suitable for all types of dampening systems. Gum-free and pH-balanced. Very good plate protection and powerful wetting capability to maintain an excellent ink/water balance at reduced water feed settings. Available in 20 l.

Prima FS605: gum-free additive designed to be used in conjunction with UV printing inks. Produces a more viscous film of water on the plate, eliminating problems associated to ink feedback and ink piling. Quickly achieves ink/water balance, reducing paper waste. Available in 20 l.

Sheet-fed alcohol reduction

Prima FS404 AS/ASH: FOGRA/ISEGA-approved additive for alcohol reduction for sheet-fed offset presses (4-8% IPA). Contains highly effective surface tension reducers and wetting agents to reduce the use of alcohol. Has a balanced pH and maintains an excellent ink/water balance at reduced water feed settings, by virtue of its powerful wetting capability. Available for all types of water. Available in 20 l. Prima FS404 ASD: additive for alcohol reduction for sheet-fed offset presses (4-8% IPA). Contains highly efficient surface tension reducers and wetting agents to reduce the use of alcohol. Contains a drying agent (non-cobalt) for faster ink drying on non-absorbing surfaces. Available in 20 l.

Elite Eco SF fount: FOGRA/ISEGA-listed additive for alcohol reduction. This fountain is developed to get the optimum performance out of our Elite Eco plate on sheet-fed presses (4-8% IPA). With its robust wetting capability and stable PH, this additive ensures an excellent ink/water balance, even at reduced water feed settings. Available in 20 l.

Sheet-fed alcohol-free

ANTURA fount AFS1/AFSH1: FOGRA-approved additive for alcohol free printing for sheet-fed offset. Can be used to print completely alcohol-free or with a very low amount of alcohol (max. 4%). Proven plate protection and powerful wetting capacity, enabling a good ink/water balance at reduced water feed settings. Available for all types of water. Available in 20 l.

Elite Eco SF fount AF: FOGRA-listed additive for alcohol free printing, this fountain is developed to get the optimum performance out of our Energy Elite Eco plate on sheet-fed presses (0-4% IPA) Due to its plate-friendly composition, Elite Eco SF fount AF does not corrode the chemical top layer of our Energy Elite Eco plate. Available in 20 l.

Prima FS808 AF: FOGRA-approved additive for alcohol-free printing for sheet-fed offset. Can be used to print completely alcohol-free or with a very low amount of alcohol (max. 4%). Proven plate protection and powerful wetting capacity, enabling a good ink/water balance at reduced water feed settings. Available in 20 l.

Coldset

ANTURA fount CS2/CS2-s: FOGRA-approved fountain solution additive, corrosion inhibited fount for fast coldset presses with turbo systems. The new formula with enhanced cleaning qualities ensures an optimal protection against scumming & foaming. Available in 20 l, 200 l and 1,000 l

ANTURA fount CS2-spray/CS2-spray: FOGRA-approved fountain solution additive, corrosion inhibited fount for fast coldset presses with spray dampening systems.

ANTURA fount CS1/CSH1: additive, specifically designed for coldset webs, particularly for newspaper printing. Maintains a stable pH even on poor quality stock. Forms a thin and even film for a more effective wetting of the plate. Avoids calcium build-up on the blankets avoiding frequent machine stops. Available in 20 l, 200 l and 1,000 l.

Heatset

ANTURA Fount HS: a high-quality corrosion inhibited fountain solution concentrate for use on fast heatset web presses. Designed to make the use of IPA redundant. In most cases a 0-5% dosage of IPA will be sufficient for alcohol dampening systems. Extreme stable ink/water balance Available in 20 l, 200l & 1000l

Prima FS909 AF Web/AFH Web: FOGRA-approved additive for alcohol-free printing on heatset web presses. Compatible with all types of dampening systems. Good wetting characteristics, creating a more viscous water film on the plate and in that way eliminating problems associated with ink feedback and ink piling. Contains a foaming suppressant and corrosion inhibitors. Can be used with 0-5% alcohol. Available in 20 l, 200 l and 1,000 l.

ANTURA fount 700/H700: FOGRA-approved additive for web printing, coldset and heatset application, even on harsh surfaces. Developed to reduce start-up waste, as well as calcium and paper build-up, avoiding frequent machine stops. Maintains a stable pH. Forms a thin and even film for a more effective wetting of the plate. Available in 20 l and 200 l

ANTURA Fount HS-LC: Corrosion-inhibited IPA eliminating fount. FOGRA / ISEGA-listed. Proven plate protection and powerful wetting capacity, developed to enable a good ink/water balance with low-calcium tap water. Available in 20 l, 200l & 1000l
