Crystagloss™ QS hi-tack, free flow Litho Letdown Vehicle
Crystagloss™ vehicles from Kerley Ink all feature free flow under gravitational shear, and come in a wide range of oil types, boiling ranges, and viscosities.
Crystagloss QS is a freeflowing, high-tack quickset vehicle. Crystagloss QS is best suited for making high gloss quickset inks with very good flow and moderate viscosity. Crystagloss QS can be used for making inks with superb film flexibility and adhesion to a wider variety of substrates such as polyester film and some pre-treated polyolefins. Use Crystagloss to "wake up" inks with poor transfer and pigment wetting. All Crystagloss vehicles are designed to be free-flowing or soft gel vehicles.
Crystagloss QS can also be used to make laser-safe forms inks by using it with quickset flushes.
Crystagloss QS is drier reactive, having a high percentage of rapidly oxidizing vegetable oils such as linseed and tung (chinawood) oils. Crystagloss QS is also fairly low in VOC's, having slightly less than 3.5% total volatiles by weight.
