ThermaSoy™ S-50 heatset web offset bio Vehicle

Thermasoy Vehicle S 50 is a soy oil-based gel vehicle designed to be used as a co-vehicle in heatset ink formulations for the purpose of reducing VOC content and increasing bio/renewables content.

Thermasoy Vehicle S 50 is 100% solids, so you can use it to reduce VOC content in heatset inks. Care must be used in formulating inks with Thermasoy Vehcile S 50, as this vehicle never really dries like a true heatset vehicle. Bio/Renewables content of ThermaSoy S-50 is approximatey 62%. 

Thermasoy Vehicle S 50 contains approximately 50% Soy Oil, which also makes it suitable for any type of no heat web offset ink, especially if the ink is to be used on any absorbent stock.
