QSG™ HI GEL Quickset Litho Vehicle

QSG HI GEL is a highly-gelled ink quickset ink vehicle intended for use as a letdown vehicle to make Speedex-style stay-fresh, offset lithographic printing inks. Speedex inks have excellent gloss, yet have incredibly fast inital setting characteristics while also having a very long "stay open" time on-press. We recommend using quickset flushes with proven, high-performance setting characteristics to make inks with incredibly fast inital setting times, yet long stay-open times on press.

QSG HI GEL has low-moderate VOC content and has a 86% bio/renewables percentage.

QSG HI GEL is drier-reactive, responding well to cobalt- and manganese-based driers. QSG HI GEL uses highly effective ultra-high molecular weight resin technology to deliver the fastest setting available while keeping VOC content at 5%.
