Correlations between properties of water-based flexographic inks and their print uniformity on PE-coated board
Uniformity of fulltone flexographic prints on PE-coated board was investigated for a large matrix of aqueous inks with varying acrylic-based vehicles and pigment concentrations, and with their applied amounts varied using a wide range of anilox volumes. Print mottle was characterised by coefficient of variation of reflectance, and partitioned into different feature-size classes. For all prints the mottle was caused by the residual pattern of white (poorly-covered) stripes originating from the...[Show more]
