Universal #1 permits a stable ink/water balance to be achieved using both polyester and metal plates. This means cleaner and faster start-up, less ink breakdown and less ink build-up on metering roller or blankets. Universal #1 keeps a good film of water on the plate background while ensuring good plate desensitization. When changing from Polyester to metal plates or visa versa, no changes are necessary. Use the same dosage and start the press.
