Maxi Set™ : Substitute for rubber-base inks 

 Quickset Small Sheet-Fed Mixing Colors

Maxi Set is designed to be used on small offset presses as a low cost alternative to the more expensive rubber-based inks. Maxi Set is a rubber base substitute, intended to be used on small offset and duplicator presses. Maxi Set is not acrylic or oil-based. Maxi Set can be used anywhere the ink must stay open overnight, set to a tack-free finish in minutes on uncoated paper, and be compatible with integrated dampening systems. Maxi Set Black and Colors are not like conventional oil-based sheetfed inks, either. Unlike oil-based inks, Maxi Set does not rely upon vegetable oils as a major component. The Maxi Set drying mechanism is identical to the drying mechanism employed by rubber-based inks. Maxi Set starts to dry the second it is printed on paper when the solvent in Maxi Set starts to penetrate into the substrate, leaving a dry pigment and resin layer on top of the sheet. Drying oils do not play a significant role in the drying mechanism of Maxi Set. Maxi Set Black and Colors have a heavy, semi free-flowing body, good pigmentation levels, and a tack of 20 points at 1200 RPM.

In addition to Maxi Set Black, Maxi Set Mixing Bases are available in the following shades below.
