The new LithoTack II is two laboratory instruments in one. On the one hand the LithoTack is a simply to use precision tack measuring instrument on the other the LithoTack II determines water balance behavior of thin ink film under practice relevant conditions. &nb
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 Thermotronic 200 is an automatic varnish cooker to prepare varnish samples independent of individual operator skills.Even high resin contents do not effect the quality of the varnish due to the powerful stirring motor and the use of a magnetic stirring bar of high volume and weigh
Surface active agents like surfactants are generally showing a specific turbidity behaviour. The classic method to determine turbidity is by visual observation, but the visual method is inaccurate and time consuming. For such applications the development of the turbidity analyzer Turb
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 Chemotronic Cool is designed for measuring the solubility of resins (and polymer blends) by means of cloud point determination over an extended temperature range. The standard Chemotronic III can determine cloud points in the range of +50° to +220° C only, which is generally suffi
The Thermotronic III is a rheological tool to standardize varnish preparation and viscosity measurements in research and industry. In order to produce varnishes of consistent structure and quality, Novomatics has developed an automatic device for quick and reproducible preparation
