Color-Logic Silver Ink Now Available for Every Offset Pressroom

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

West Chester, OHColor-Logic BEST Offset Silver Ink--developed for use with the Color-Logic  Process Metallic Color System--is rapidly finding much broader use in sheetfed offset pressrooms around the world.    Color-Logic BEST Offset Silver Ink prints at a very thin ink film thickness (density)--at least 50 percent less than conventional metallic silver ink--permitting better control on press and significantly cutting down on ink usage.  On most jobs, using the new ink produces dramatic cost savings, due to reduced metallic ink consumption. Perhaps the most significant feature of Color-Logic BEST Offset Silver Ink lies in its unique formulation, which enables the silver to retain its luster after aqueous or ultraviolet coating, varnishing, or lamination.  The ink has excellent intercoat adhesion, and can be used for blister pack applications and foil stamping.

Discussing the characteristics of the ink, Color-Logic Chief Technical Officer Richard Ainge commented: "Color-Logic BEST Offset Silver Ink was so-named because it incorporates four attributes not normally found in metallic inks.  It offers printers Brilliance, Economy,Special Effects, and Trapping.  Because of its ability to trap process inks printed over it, our ink permits graphic designers to produce myriad colors and special effects when using Color-Logic Design Suite software.  Color-Logic BEST Offset Silver Ink also does not pile on press and prints more cleanly than conventional silver inks, with a typical target ink density of 0.35 to 0.40 Status-T (0.60 to 0.70 Polarized) ensuring great ink mileage."
