Tower Introduces Digital Fountain Solution For Web Presses

Monday, June 06, 2005

(Easton, PA) Tower Products, Inc., a leading manufacturer of environmentally sensitive pressroom chemistry has released MILLENNIUM DGT, a digital fountain solution for use on high-speed web presses. MILLENNIUM DGT is a unique technology that allows web pressrooms to run one fountain solution for both conventional and UV inks. The product was formulated to be compatible with all CTP and Thermal plate material; either baked or unbaked. Also, MILLENNIUM DGT will not contribute to image “walk off”, because the product does not contain propylene or ethylene glycol. Advanced wetting agents allow this product to be run at lower dosages than most web fountain solutions currently in use. MILLENNIUM DGT features an outstanding buffering system to prevent calcium carbonate from causing a pH drift and produces a fast, clean roll up, preventing excess paper waste.
