Product Description & Application
AkronGold CF1A is a FOGRA approved fountain solution concentrate formulated for sheet-fed presses with alcohol and integrated dampening systems. It can be used with a very low dose of isopropanol (IPA) or even without IPA.
Features & Benefits
FOGRA approved for Heidelberg, MAN Roland & KBA; conforms to warranty requirements
Free of VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds); for a cleaner & safer pressroom
Digital & Analog plate safe; for zero plate cancellation
Contains corrosion inhibitors; to safeguard expensive metal press parts
Formulated with high-performance anti-piling properties; to reduce press downtime
Effective biocide system; for prolonged bath life & minimal effluent generation
Enables fast clean-up and rapid attainment of ink-water balance; for reduced start-up wastage
Usage Instructions
Depending on usage condition, add between 2% ~ 4% concentrate in water (20 ml ~ 40 ml concentrate in one litre of water).
Ideal dilution depends on press speed, type of dampening system, ink type and paper quality.
Use a freshly calibrated conductivity meter, for accurate dosing control. Ensure that the mixed fount solution is within ± 100 µs of the pre-determined mix.
Mechanical dosing devices for IPA are not recommended. Use an electronic dosing device for dosing IPA below 5%, for greater press stability.
To ensure optimum tray life, thoroughly clean the dosing, circulation and feeding systems with Fount System Cleaner and deglaze ink train and dampening rubber rollers, before charging freshly mixed solution.
Recommended IPA dosage: 0~5%.
