SCC basic inks

Following the formulations from SCC Catalogue we can produce 84 shades of colour from 9 basic colours, black and transparent white. These inks are used for offset printing techniques. They are glossy and highly pigmented. With them we can print on all sorts of coated and uncoated paper and cardboard. Due to excellent adhesion and abrasion resistance they can be used for printing on impermeable surfaces. The sharpness of imprints and drying are best when the inks are used on one- or two-colour machines. The optimum coating quantity at full colour print according to SCC catalogue should be 1,3 g/m2 when printing on glossy paper and cardboard. When printing on uncoated paper the coating quantity depends on the degree of surface roughness. Printing with thicker ink film requires lower print piles and dusting.
When mixing colour shades, basic colour fastness has to be considered to obtain the shade we want, due to specification in catalogue scale.
Light stability of particular shade is the same as the lowest light stability of added basic colour. Lightening with transparent white results in lower light stability.
