Silicone Emulsions

With commercial web presses becoming faster and faster, the quality demanded by printers and print shop customers must be ensured by the correct silicone type. The silicones of DC DruckChemie guarantees the level of quality, by on the one hand, protecting the substrate following the drying stage and, on the other hand, makes it re-wetable to facilitate processing in the subsequent folding step and to prevent varnish cracking at the folds.

DC DruckChemie silicone emulsions are characterized by a uniform particle size and ensure outstanding stability, low viscosity and good wetting properties. This ensures an even and continuous film on the applicator roll and thus enables a greatly improved silicone transfer. 

The SurfSpeed series is characterized by very good gliding properties as well as a very high resistance to abrasion. Furthermore, the use of SurfSpeed will prevent paper and ink particles from smearing and depositing on the former, deflection rollers and turning bars. In addition, our products facilitate further processing in the form of folding, cutting and stacking.

The SurfSpeed series from DC DruckChemie GmbH is economical in use and thus enables the printer to achieve outstanding printing performance, which is reflected in longer run times and higher added value.
