Web offset printing ink formulation  is a form of offset printing formula in which a continuous roll of paper is fed through the printing press. Pages are separated and cut to size after they have been printed.

Web offset printing ink is a type of ink used in web offset printing, which is a popular commercial printing method. In web offset printing, a continuous roll of paper is fed through the printing press, allowing for high-speed and efficient production of printed materials like newspapers, magazines, catalogs, and brochures.

Web offset printing inks are specifically formulated to meet the requirements of this printing process. They have several key characteristics that make them suitable for web offset printing ink formulation

Ink Properties

  1. Quick Drying: Web offset inks are designed to dry quickly to prevent smudging and to allow for high-speed printing. The ink needs to dry rapidly as the paper moves through the press.
  2. Low Viscosity: These inks have a relatively low viscosity to facilitate smooth and even distribution on the printing plate and the printing blanket.
  3. High Pigment Concentration: Web offset inks typically have a high pigment concentration, which contributes to vivid and consistent color reproduction.
  4. Good Ink-Water Balance: Achieving the right balance between ink and water is critical in offset printing. Web offset inks are formulated to work well with the dampening system in the press to maintain this balance, ensuring sharp and clear images.
  5. Compatibility with Printing Plates: Web offset printing uses metal plates with a hydrophilic (water-attracting) image area and a hydrophobic (ink-attracting) non-image area. The ink must be designed to adhere to the hydrophobic areas while being repelled by the hydrophilic areas.
  6. Rub Resistance: The ink should offer good rub resistance, ensuring that the printed materials can withstand handling without smudging or smearing.

Web offset printing ink making guide

Web offset printing inks come in various types, including oil-based, water-based, and hybrid (combination of oil and water) formulations. Each type has its specific advantages and applications.

It’s essential to make  the right type of ink for a particular printing job to achieve the best results in terms of color quality, drying time, and overall print performance. Printers usually select inks based on the type of paper, the desired print quality, and the specific requirements of the project.
