Rubber Base Plus has always been and continues to be the most widely used small offset press printing ink around the world. It is truly an economical ink since it stays open on the press for days at a time eliminating the need and time of costly wash-ups and it will not skin in the can. • fully overnight, stays open in the ink duct overnight and does not dry in the tin. • fast setting and excellent rub resistance. • suitable for all types of small offset presses. • fast setting and drying on uncoated stocks. • suitable for all plate systems. • full range of PANTONE Basic Colours available from stock.
Unfortunately, the Van Son factory in Hilversum, the Netherlands, closed in February 2022, so all inks are available "until stocks last".
A press-ready small offset press printing ink known for its easy working properties. Sets and dries very fast on uncoated papers making it the ideal ink for quick back-ups, cutting or folding. Economical because it produces more copies, stays open on the press and does not skin in the can. Rubber Base Plus runs extremely well on small to mid-sized presses with both integrated and conventional dampening systems. It is compatible with all plate systems especially metal and electrostatic. It is not intended for use on coated or hard surfaced stocks without the addition of driers. In addition to its ease of use, Rubber Base Plus is also excellent for thermography, forms, envelopes and letter-press applications where it performs perfectly.
Apart from the commercial use as described here above, it is the most wanted ink for printmaking artists, for both lithography and relief printmaking.
