Our hardening agents maintain the service water at a constant level between 9 degrees to 12 degrees d.H (German hardness) and facilitate the printing process through this optimal water hardness.
Water that is too soft can lead to an over emulsifying of the ink.
Water that is too hard contains excess hardness constituents and can lead to deposit formations on the rubber blanket or rollers
The addition of 0.5% Calcilot to the desalinated water results in a water hardness of approx. 10 degrees d.H.
The addition of 0.5% Macnilot to the desalinated water results in a water hardness of approx.10 degrees d.H. Calcium-free.
