Vegra Alco-Damp Alco-Damp BLUE 3838 Zi

Product Description

Certified by MPA; with corrosion inhibitor for printing without alcohol or with reduced amount of alcohol in Sheet Fed and Continuous Stationary Printing also suitable for CTP plates Use: Suitable for all film dampening systems (KOEBAU, KBA-Planeta, Harris-Duotrol, Heidelberger Alcolor, MAN Rolandmatic). Certified by MPA:

The product is in accordance with the quality specifications for: - Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG - MAN Roland Druckmaschinen AG - Koenig und Bauer-Albert AG with regard to observing the specific limiting values for corrosion on metallic materials.

Recommended Dosage: 4 % - We recommend to reduce the alcohol content step by step.


Strong buffer; keeping the pH value within the most favourable range for printing. -

Plate Protection; hydrophilic substances cover the plate and protect it reliably during machine stops. No gumming up is necessary and quick, clean start ups can be achieved even after longer stops

Constant ink-water balance; surface active fount for optimizing the ink-water balance. Tight water path, very good wetting of the printing plates, clean dampening rollers, low contamination of the fount circuit.

In alcohol dampening systems the alcohol content can be reduced. In special cases, even alcohol free printing is possible. This additive guarantees a quick start-up - which means higher productivity and reduced misprints. - Systemic substances keep the circuit clean according to the directives of the printing press manufacturers. We recommend to wash the dampening system from time to time.

No formaldehyde or formaldehyde substances; prevents corrosion on plate, blanket and impression cylinders. Protects machine parts made of structural steel, case hardened steel (e.g. bearer rings) or stainless steel as well as nickel electroplated or oxide ceramic sprayed cylinder coatings from corrosion. With parts already affected by corrosion, a further abrasion is prevented.
