Ecobright™ AF Mid-Gel Bio-based Litho Vehicle
Ecobrite AF Vehicle is a 100% solids, soy, linseed & tung oil-based vehicle suitable for use as a sheetfed ink letdown vehicle. Although EcoBright AF vehicle is virtually an all-solids litho vehicle, sheetfed inks formulated with it have exceptionally fast initial setting for excellent work & turn performance. EcoBright-based inks dry to the touch within seconds of impression, yet ink keeps open in the fountain all day long. EcoBright AF is furnished as a mid-viscosity gel that can easily be softened with a wide variety of oils or solvents.
When necessary, we recommend that cobalt and manganese driers be used with Ecobrite AF Vehicle in order to assure a hard cure takes place after impression, especially on high-holdout coated stocks and non-porous plastic films.
EcoBright Vehicle has a bio/renewables content of approximately 84%.
