DC Paper Save
DC PaperSave is a new, patent applied dampening additive for heatset printing that offers print shops both economical as well as ecological advantages. The use of DC PaperSave makes it possible to cut the number of cleaning intervals during a print job almost in half with minimal effort.
- Reduced downtimes and restart times resulting from machine cleaning
- Shorter production times
- Less paper waste related to restarts
- Faster restoration on the ink-water balance
- 50% reduction in print run paper waste and up to 2% reduction in total paper consumption
Kinder to the Environment
Overall, fewer consumables will be used, such as washing agents and wash cloths. There will be less waste which positively affects both the cost structure as well as, in particular, the company’s life cycle assessment (LCA).
DC PaperSave is combined with our heatset fount solution up to 1%, being added very simply via the fresh water line through the installation of an additional dosing feeder. The individual machine settings remain completely unaffected.
The use of DC PaperSave has also an effect on the overall print quality:
- The printing plate clears more quickly
- Start-up is problem-free
- The ink tack is reduced
- The ink-water balance is more quickly restored
- The build-up of ink and paper on the blankets is reduced
