Web News Extender FFG is a low-VOC, mineral oil-based extender vehicle with medium tack and excellent flow. Web News Extender FFG is designed to be used to make coldset web news and low-tack business forms inks. Virtually any type of mineral oil-based, soy oil-based or heatset oil-based flush or pigment dispersion is compatible with Web News Extender FFG .
Web News Extender FFG can be used as the sole letdown vehicle at a cost that's competitive with ungelled resin solutons. A distinct advantage of Web News Extender FFG over resin solutions is that inks made with Web News Extender FFG will have low misting and excellent rheological characteristics. Web News Extender FFG will deliver inks with excellent flow and superb ink/water balance even at very low tacks.
Web News Extender FFG is compatible with both neutral and mild acid fountain solutuons. Ink/water balance is excellent.
The main difference with Web News Extender FFG in comparison to our Web News Extender MEGAGEL is that although it is a gel, it is considerably softer in body and does not develop a high-structure ink like standard Web News Extender MEGAGEL can. This is particularly advantageous if you are formulating for more modern higher-speed presses that use pressurized ink delivery systems from tanks or large tote bins.
Web News Extender FFG may be used with Soy Oil-based, Heatset, or Quickset flushed colors with good results.
