Crystagloss™ LO VIS Letdown Vehicle

Crystagloss LO VIS vehicle is a 100% solids, soy-based letdown varnish intended for use as an "alkyd replacement". Crystagloss LO VIS vehicle is a soft, freeflowing product that can be added to a quickset or forms ink formula that has too much viscosity to "wake up" ink transfer. Immediate improvements in density and gloss are often reported.

Due to our unique resin combination, Crystagloss LO VIS vehicle will not increase inital setting time after impression, allowing jobs to be "backed up" quickly. Crystagloss LO VIS vehicle is drier-reactive and can form a hard film when cobalt/manganese catalysts are added.

Crystagloss LO MIST has 1% VOC content and has a 64% bio/renewables percentage.
