40 Plus™ FAST Base Black
40 Plus FAST Base Black was designed to provide maximum setting speed for sheetfed and heatset inks without sacrificing gloss or density. If your customer is demanding ever-shorter "backup" times, then you should use 40 Plus FAST Base black for all of your work-and-turn quickset blacks!
40 Plus FAST Base Black also has a softer body than our famous "40 Plus" universal base black, which is an advantage on slow or low-horsepower mixing equipment.
40 Plus FAST Base Black can also be used to make stable heatset inks, with low VOC content.
