FormsMaster™ Black & MOD Black

 Coldset Forms Small Web-Offset Blacks

FormsMaster Black is Kerley Ink's "best value" black for high-strength, low rub, no-heat web offset printing. FormsMaster is petroleum-based and offers VOC levels of below 8%. FormsMaster is not recommended for laser-compatible printing jobs. FormsMaster has the unique ability to penetrate deep into uncoated stocks for very good rub and setoff resistance at the moment of impression. Use FormsMaster Black for just about any type of high-resolution work with small webs and without the aid of heat.


FormsMaster black is available in tack ranging from 6 points up to 14 points at 1200 RPM.
