Ecobright™ GEL PLUS Heavy-Gel Bio-based Vehicle
Ecobrite GEL Plus Vehicle is a 100% solids, soy, linseed & tung oil-based vehicle suitable for use as a sheetfed ink letdown vehicle. Although EcoBright GEL Plus 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 Gel Plus is furnished as a high-viscosity gel that can easily be softened with a wide variety of oils or solvents to make excellent low- and mid-tack inks.
When necessary, we recommend that cobalt and manganese driers be used with Ecobrite GEL Plus Vehicle in order to assure a hard cure takes place after impression, especially on high-holdout coated stocks and non-porous plastic films.
EcoBright Gel Plus Vehicle has a bio/renewables content of approximately 82%.
