Instructions for use

We recommend cleaning the dampening system before using the fountain solution.

The recommended standard dosage is between 3 y 4%, and 0% IPA. The optimum conductivity in a fresh dampening solution is approximately 1450 mS/cm, with 3,5 % of Fount 2012 in a 250 mS/cm tap water.

For a successful IPA elimination it is necessary that the fount cooling system is operational, the ink and fount rollers appropriately adjusted and the printer’s implication assured. If standard dampening system rollers are in use, perhaps the ductor roller speed should be increased.
