RBP Chemical Technology Announces Concept 21 5 Star

Press release from the issuing company

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, (August 14, 2008) -RBP Chemical Technology has announced the immediate availability of Concept 21 5 Star.  Specifically designed for newspapers and coldset web offset printers, Concept 21 5 Star is part of the popular RBP Concept 21 fountain solution delivery system product line.
Concept 21 5 Star is a unique, patented fountain solution system that more accurately controls press chemistry.  A precision proportioning pump mixes superconcentrated chemistry to produce more consistent and predictable pressroom results, reduce waste, and create a smaller environmental footprint.  The Concept 21 5 Star provides greater control of ink and water balance, enabling the press to print more consistent solid ink densities while reducing ink and water consumption.  Fountain solution consumption is reduced by more than 50 percent in most instances, and paper waste is reduced as a result of quicker and cleaner startups and restarts.
Announcing the Concept 21 5 Star, RBP Director of Sales and Marketing Dan Romani said: "The broad acceptance and popularity of the original RBP Concept 21 system among heatset web printers led us to develop the Concept 21 5 Star specifically for newspapers and coldset web offset printers.  In an age when these printers face fierce economic and environmental pressure, Concept 21 5 Star provides a clear path to reducing production costs while printing 'greener' by reducing chemical consumption and VOCs."
