40 Plus FAST Base Black was designed to provide maximum setting speed for oil-based conventional 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.
