When a unit, or units, of a multi color press is being run in a non-printing mode the inking rollers can generate substantial amounts of heat through internal friction. If this situation is allowed to continue or repeated on a regular basis roller life will be shortened dramatically. Roller Lube is designed specifically for this situation. It contains friction reducing components to prevent the over-heating of the inking rollers and conditioners to maintain the ink transfer surface.
To protect non-printing press units:
Apply directly to the ink roller train; ensure sufficient is applied to thoroughly coat each roller.
Wash up as if performing a standard color wash.
