The AlphaTack Plus instrument allows quick tack determination of printing inks with a high degree of accuracy and reproducibility. Due to its closely controlled test conditions the AlphaTack Plus methodology offers significant advantages over the usual tack testing methods. The AlphaT
The cloud point temperature is a characteristic value in the quality control of synthetic resins or printing inks. Deviations in cloud point can lead to sedimentation the varnish, differences in drying speed, loss of gloss and tack stability. The cloud point is the temperature at whic
Quick waterbalance testing of offset inks with Lithotronic IV A good ink-water balance is important for high quality printing on lithographic offset printing presses. In order to be able to predict the performance on the press, the water absorbency of lithographic inks must be tested.
The LithoTack is like two instruments in one. On one hand you can expect a very precise, pure tack measurement on the other hand the water balance performance is determined in same test. These and more water balance parameters can be measured quickly and accurately under press conform
