Wikoff Color has released a new series of oil-based inks for the commercial printing market. Its new Divergent series is formulated for conventional lithographic printing, but the new revolutionary approach to oil-based ink has shown outstanding results on press, solving many of the familiar issues that litho printers have come to expect with this chemistry.
Divergent has been formulated for optimal printing with greatly reduced water levels. Wikoff says that its customers have been able to cut water settings by up to 10 percent using it. Divergent is also designed to achieve desired color upon startup and restarts, which reduces downtime and waste. It also remains stable from start to finish, even on bigger jobs.
