Features

Adding Etch Control to any acid based fountain solution will quickly revive and stabilize depleted acids within the fountain solution while simultaneously neutralizing calcium carbonate leeched from paper stock. Etch Control will effectively maintain water speeds, open up fine reverses and while screens desensitizing plates to minimize scratches.

 

Product Overview

 

All fountain solutions lose strength over time due to contamination (some sooner than others). One major cause of weakened fount is the buildup of calcium carbonate from paper fillers. As calcium carbonate builds within the fountain solution system, it neutralizes and weakens the solution. Causing the fountain solution to be dumped and replenished prematurely, costing you time and money.

Control variables and extend the life and performance of your fountain solution. Etch Control suspends and inhibits calcium build up within the fountain solution, allowing you to produce sharp, clean halftones, reverses, and screens. Use with metallic inks or conventional inks, to reduce water settings, print dense solids, and eliminate ghosting. Etch Control stops scratches, scumming, and oxidation before they occur and removes them if they do occur.

Product Application

Dosage: 1 ounce per gallon of mixed fountain solution. If necessary, increase up to 2 ounces.

For permanent removal of deep scratches during the press run: add one additional ounce per gallon of mixed fountain solution. Remove excess ink from scratch with Allied’s recommended plate cleaner. Pour Etch Control onto a clean sponge or shop towel and wipe on the scratch. Using it directly on the plate will keep the deep scratches clean until Etch Control takes effect in the fountain solution.
