Water-Based Graphic Inks
Inter-Graph Series (Graphic & Line Colors)
Ink Company offers low maintenance Water-Based Graphic Inks based on
the Fourteen-Color system. This
line includes Four-Color Process Inks, Fluorescent and Metallic Gold
and Silver Inks. While
these inks have excellent lightfastness properties, it is always
recommended that particular ink requirements be discussed with our
technical personnel. This
proven product line has been formulated with a very low VOC content,
a pH range of 9-9.5, which produces excellent “speed of dry”
characteristics at various press speeds, with a shipping viscosity
of 25-30 seconds in a #3 Zahn cup.
IIC’s universal Water-Based Graphic Inks have been designed and formulated for a wide range of flexible substrates and are divided into two distinct groups: One for general day to day production printing, and another to achieve superior lightfast requirements. International Ink Company technical personnel will be pleased to evaluate your particular substrate requirements upon request. Flexographic: Inter-Graph Series Inks have been press tested to obtain true color reproduction on a variety of Anilox values. We recommend that your specific Anilox roll needs be discussed with IIC’s technical sales representatives.
An indefinite number of shades and hues can be obtained with matches
to the Fourteen Basic Colors to meet artwork requirements. Please keep in mind that the shades will be affected by the
porosity, sheen, and shade of the substrate printed upon.
These products have been approved by ACTS Testing Labs for
non-heavy metal content. For
FDA requirements, please contact IIC for particular formulations to
meet the criteria as cited in FDA, 21 CFR 175.300 and 175.320.
Inter-Graph Series Inks are packaged in 1-gallon and 5-gallon containers and 55-gallon drums.
