Ink drying in sheet-fed offset printing - Effect of temperature
KTH, Superseded Departments, Fibre and Polymer Technology.
2004 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Sheet-fed offset inks dry through the absorption of ink oils by the paper (physical drying) and through oxygen-induced polymerization of alkyd resin and drying oils (chemical drying). Data on the rate of oil absorption and polymerisation are given together with information about the ink drying process after full-scale sheet-fed offset printing. It is shown that the drying process is very slow and that the rate decreases with decreasing temperature. The ink film is fully dry when the chemical drying is completed, but this can take several days.
