  author={Sanna M. Rousu and Patrick Gane and Dan E. Eklund},
In this work offset ink setting on coated paper was investigated, the main emphasis being on the influence of the chemical interactions between the ink and coating components. The differential absorption of the ink components from different ink formulations on a series of well defined coating layers of various chemical and physical character was studied. Ink – coating interaction was studied as tack development of the ink during a time period of 3 seconds to 15 minutes after impression on… CONTINUE READING
