         Press-room chemistry                                        

The correct application of different press-room chemicals optimises press performance, minimises press wear and lengthens the life of plates and blankets. The use of proper blanket washes and revitalising agents produces better copies and prolongs the life of the blanket.  Correct and measured fount solutions improve press running and reduce press corrosion.

The HUNTERPRESS range of press-room chemistry had been substantially improved and developed during 2003 and this work has continued in 2004.  Much attention has been paid to getting the profiles and characteristics of this range right and at the right prices.
