An ink conditioner for offset sheetfed, web-offset inks and overprint varnishes.
Ink Transfer Agent (ITA) is an ink vehicle dispersion designed to aid ink setting during the first stage of drying. Because of its extremely fine dispersion, ITA can be easily mixed into any ink on or off the press without the need for milling. ITA will promptly remedy any ink/paper-picking problems related to paper quality or ink tackiness. Solids are no longer a problem and sharper dots become evident with only minute additions of ITA. Without materially affecting ink or vanish gloss, additions of 3-6% based upon total ink weight to any letterpress, sheetfed offset, web-offset ink, or overprint varnish will greatly reduce offsetting, picking and scumming problems. Results consistently prove added ink mileage as well. Developed as a compound for oleoresineous oxidizing vehicle systems, including but not limited to modified phenolics, alkyds, maleics, hydrocarbons, natural resins, and rubber-base systems. ITA will not interfere with ink colors including half-tones when used as directed. Maximum use with any ink system normally should not exceed 6%. Ingredients meet USDA requirements for use in food packaging inks.
